    What’s New – Chinook Update and Sale – April 2, 2024

    One of our favorite sweater yarns, Fleece Artist Chinook, has gotten an upgrade! This 100% machine washable Merino worsted weight workhorse is now also GOTS certified organic, so you can feel as good about it’s production as it feels to wear. We’ve just replenished our stock of several colorways in the new Organic Chinook, which is identical to the older version, with 170m/125g.

    To clear some space to replenish even more colorways with the new version, we’ve put all of the older version colorways on sale at 15% off their original price. If you’ve never experienced the softness, vibrancy of color, or easy care of Chinook, now is the perfect time. It’s ideal for garments for both young and old, hats and other next-to-skin accessories, or even toys and stuffies that will see years of use and love.

    I’ve used Chinook to both knit and crochet sweaters for my little ones, and they’ve all lasted through both of my kiddos, all of their shenanigans, all the machine washings (and several trips through the dryer; oops!), and are still in great shape, ready to pass down the line of cousins. Stay tuned tomorrow for more information on the patterns I used for the sweaters.

    If you need new needles or hooks for a Chinook project, we have the full line of addi tools at 20% off MSRP, no coupon code needed. And as always, all domestic orders qualify for free shipping with no minimum purchase, as do all international orders over $200US.

  • Toolbox Tuesday – Olive Wood Circulars – April 2, 2024

    Toolbox Tuesday – Olive Wood Circulars – April 2, 2024

    Toolbox Tuesday – Olive Wood Circular Needles

    Something about spring makes me want to knit with silk, and something about knitting with silk makes me want to use the Olive Wood Circulars.

    The Olive Wood comes from non-fruit bearing trees, and is finished with a plant-based oil to protect its beauty; each tip has its own unique grain pattern, so no two are exactly alike. The needles are quiet and comfortable; they attain and remain at body temperature quickly and give a grippier surface than the metal Turbo-plating finish, making them an excellent choice for super slick yarns and stiff or painful hands. And because the Olive Wood is dense and hard, the tips have a sharper point than the Bamboo circulars.

    The Olive Wood circulars come in sizes US 2/3mm through US 17/12mm and lengths ranging from 16″ through 60″.

    These, and all addi products on the website, are 20% off MSRP all the time with no coupon needed. And as always, all domestic orders qualify for free shipping with no minimum purchase, as do all international orders over $200US.

    Have you tried these beautifully unique needles yet?

  • What’s New – Hand Maiden Cashmere and Silk – March 20, 2024

    What’s New – Hand Maiden Cashmere and Silk – March 20, 2024

    Our latest yarn arrival to hit the website is a small but sweet batch of Hand Maiden Cashmere and Silk, an absolutely luscious blend of 65% cashmere and 35% silk. It is no exaggeration when I say that I’ve never felt a softer, more luxurious yarn.

    Each 50g skein of this fingering weight gem packs in 180m (196yd), and deserves to be worn next-to-skin as a scarf, neck warmer, or even a sumptuous top or tee. And here’s a tip directly from Hand Maiden – if you wind the yarn into a cake, be sure to pull from the outside rather than the center, as the fine silks tend to lose their structure and collapse once the inner part of the cake has been pulled out.

    Need needles or hooks to go with the Cashmere and Silk? Find our entire collection of addi Needles and Hooks at 20% off MSRP, no coupon code needed, and all featuring addi’s lifetime guarantee.

    As always all domestic orders receive free shipping with no minimum purchase, as do international orders over $200US.

  • Toolbox Tuesday – Ewenicorn Click Tips & Cords – March 19, 2024

    Toolbox Tuesday – Ewenicorn Click Tips & Cords – March 19, 2024

    The latest additions to the addi Click Set range are (almost) here! The Long Ewenicorn Rocket Click style is now available as individual tips, along with individual pink cords to complete the fanciful look. The shipment is already on its way to Twitchy Hands, and I expect it to arrive in the next day or two!

    Each addi Long Ewenicorn Click Rocket Tip features the distinctive spiral texture unique to the Ewenicorn line, as well as addi’s sharp Rocket point and ultra fast Turbo plated finish. And for those of you who love the pink cord and SOS lifeline slits of the Ewenicorn Circulars, the addi Long Ewenicorn Click Cord is now available in single packs to create a 24″, 32″, and 40″ total length circular.

    All addi products carry a lifetime guarantee to be free from manufacturing defects, and our entire collection is always 20% off with no coupon code needed.

  • Hand Maiden Casbah – March 15, 2024

    Hand Maiden Casbah – March 15, 2024

    The latest shipment from Hand Maiden is a super squishy restock of some of my favorite colorways on the Casbah base, as well as a couple of stunning new colorways! Casbah is my fingering weight yarn of choice because it’s as soft as it is strong, and the way it takes colors can’t be beat! It’s perfect for wearing next-to-skin as a sweater, socks, or any other accessory you can think of.

    Hand Maiden Casbah is a blend of 80% Superwash Merino (for the softest wooly goodness and saturated hues), 10% cashmere (for unparalleled softness and comfort), and 10% nylon (for strength and durability), and each 115g skein has 325m (355yds).

    When sorting through the big box of our Casbah, my youngest spotted the new colorway Marbles, and immediately fell in love! He grabbed a skein and informed me that he needed a new hat, so that’s what I’ll be working on this weekend. What about you?

    Need needles or hooks to go with the Casbah? Find our entire collection of addi Needles and Hooks at 20% off MSRP, no coupon code needed, and all featuring addi’s lifetime guarantee.

    As always, all domestic orders qualify for free shipping with no minimum purchase, as do international orders over $200.

  • Toolbox Tuesday – addi2You Knitting Ring – March 5, 2024

    Toolbox Tuesday – addi2You Knitting Ring – March 5, 2024

    The newest tool to hit our toolbox is both gorgeous and functional – the addi2You Knitting Ring!

    Stranded colorwork is fun and beautiful — but it can be tricky handling all of those strands at once. With the addi2You Knitting Ring, you can keep two strands perfectly separated on your finger, allowing you to easily pick up the correct strand for every stitch! And if you’re exceptionally ambitious with 3 or 4 strands per row, you might consider wearing two rings – one on each index finger, or two on your dominant index finger (one below the knuckle and one above).

    Made in Germany from 925 sterling silver (92.5% silver by weight), this eye catching ring features two thread guides to assist with stranded colorwork. The addi2You Knitting Ring is easily adjustable and available in sizes Small (52 mm circum. = US 6.5), Medium (54 mm circum. = US 7), and Large (56 mm circum. = US 8).

    As always, all addi products are 20% off MSRP with no coupon code needed. Plus, all domestic orders qualify for free shipping with no minimum purchase, as do all international orders over $200US.

  • Toolbox Tuesday – addi Click Accessory Cords – Feb 27, 2024

    Toolbox Tuesday – addi Click Accessory Cords – Feb 27, 2024

    Toolbox Tuesday – New addi Click Accessory Cords!

    We’ve received a new addi Click product, and we’re very excited about them! The new Accessory Cords come in sets of three and are approximately 3.5” long. These versatile new cords can be used in a variety of ways, and are compatible with every set within the addi Click System.

    One novel idea is to use them to create your own FlexiFlips, Duetts, or a cable needle in any size or tip material you prefer. They can be connected to the Click Crochet Hooks and HeartStoppers to create a short Tunisian crochet hook. They can be used as a short stitch holder with either HeartStoppers or needle tips attached. Or they can simply add a few inches to your other cord lengths. So many exciting possibilities.

    However you use them, you can count on addi’s consistent quality! As with all addi products, the new Accessory Cords carry addi’s lifetime guarantee to be free from manufacturing defects.

    As always, all addi products are always 20% off. Plus, all domestic orders qualify for free shipping with no minimum purchase, as do all international orders over $200US.

    How will you use them?
