Fiber Friday: Wild Knitting, Tattos, and Fascinating Fashion

Starting this week, I'll be listing my favorite 3 awesome fashion, fiber, and textile links that I found this week.

Field Trip: Lion Brand Retail Store

Last weekend I took a trip to the Albany area. The trip included a stop at the Lion Brand Retail store in Colonie, NY. If you like Lion Brand or live in the area, this store is worth the trip. It's one of the only places to see nearly all of the yarns and colorways that Lion Brand has to offer including clearance and discontinued items, new yarns, and a few small batch products that are only carried in their retail and factory stores. Any knitter, crocheter, or general crafter can find something there.

Fox Paws

It is somewhat painful to keep a secret that is very exciting. It is also somewhat painful to be halfway through a project and to find out the burning sensation in your mouth and nose is caused by said project. Today I can gladly announce that Fox Paws, a new flame stitch pattern, is now published after months of secrecy.
