Our brand new treelover children's beanie is featured on the front page of etsy! It was a nice thing to wake up to on a cold, winter Sunday Morning - we love making it on the front page, makes us feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside...
There's also super cool items from our fellow etsiers on there as well, (search them out using their shop name below the item's photo).

Holidays were great but we tried not to waste any time and created "a few" new items as well as had a few photo shoots to slowly start listing our new inventory. We have a new product addition from our guest designer - baby soy blanket, some new neckwarmers and cowls with new yarns and hues, and several new hat styles - Reykyavik, Elvish Glee Pixie Hat with more to come.

It's finally here! knittle's hunter hat, in an easy to follow pdf pattern. We finally used the slowdown of custom orders to put one of our most popular hats, in pattern form so that you can make one of your own, in the colours of your choice, and in the fiber of your choosing. Not a crocheter but would like a Hunter of your very own, in the softest, most lux (and fairly traded) yarn??? You can get that here.
Yikes, what's next? Found this on treehugger.com
The experimenting of Chiliean designer Alexandra Guerrero resulted in some wool + cigarette butts blend. You could see the actual process how it is done on Mantis-mantis blog

This is such great and exciting news! Long awaited! Now we can track the visits to our etsy shop and hopefully conversions(not sure how they would make this possible. So far the announcement just says "pageviews, site visits, popular content and page referrals". In any case, we are very pleased and excited and yes, all set.

Knittles has a guest designer, Marcy, who makes very detailed, and tedious larger items for all those knittles fans that need a bit more coverage. She loves to design and make shawls, wraps, baby blankets and even adult size blankets. As such, her items are one-of-a-kind, each with their own unique finishing touches (interesting hemlines, asymmetric edges, etc.).
Marcy started her crocheting career with a very memorable asymmetric and wavy baby blanket (almost like an animal pelt). She has since learned to make straight edges (not always wanting to make straight edges) and now loves to play with geometry and loves using atypical colour combinations. knittles loves Marcy's work for it's simple, classic, and asymmetric style. Here are just a few items of hers that are available in our shop.
