Maybe you're acquainted with silversmith Leslie Wind's delicate and lacy shawl pins. Now she's also playing with many elegant and fluid shapes for a cable needle pendant that is both a tool and a signal to fellow knitters in the stitch switching tribe.
Knitting lightly in the earth? Tactile Fiber Arts have a perfect yarn for you: both organic and naturally dyed chubby cottons, downy wool and wool/alpaca blends, and this past summer's favorite, a marled merino linen. All are available through their website, but Brooke, Maia, and their yarn can be found in person at California Wool & Fiber Festival in Booneville on September 12-14.
