I needed an easy, take with me project so I'm knitting Free Your Fade with Rockshelter Rock.
This shawl was created to be your favorite shawl pattern! Really relaxing garter stitch with engaging eyelet rows and endless color possibilities. It would be gorgeous knit up in one color, but you can just as easily use 20! I’ve extended the color melt sections for an even more cohesive fade, with easy instructions to add as many fade sections as you would like! The shawl is light weight and perfect year round when knit up in fingering weight yarn, but don’t let that stop you from knitting it up in any yarn weight you prefer to the size of your choosing!
Rockshelter Sock is a handpainted sock yarn by Meadowcroft Dyeworks. This 100% Superwash Merino Wool yarn is very soft and the firm twist gives it strength. This yarn would be a great choice for accessories or a lightweight pullover.
I knit Find Your Fade with Rockshelter Sock and really enjoyed working with it. Meadowcroft Dyeworks is a father/son team and their colours are amazing.


We will have another order arriving from Namaste next week which will include the Interchangeable Buddy Case. This is bigger than the Buddy Case that we already have in stock.
Formerly known as the Bigga' Buddy Case, Namaste is back with the new and improved Knitter's Interchangeable Buddy Case. A larger version of the Knitter's Buddy Case, made of animal-friendly faux leather, this amazing case keeps your metal items in place with its inner magnetized walls. Perfect for keeping your notions in one place, the improved Knitter's Interchangeable Buddy Case has significantly more powerful magnets to keep your notions in place, a stronger and more durable frame, and higher quality materials. Its spacious interior accommodates all kinds of notions and accessories, even crochet hooks and double point needles! This needle/notions case also includes a removable interior divider with attached elastic for holding interchangeable cords and needle tips. Committed to more sustainable packaging, the Knitter's Interchangeable Buddy Case also come in a re-useable gift box.

Laura from Namaste (and JBW) is back to tell you about some of the cool features of the bags from the newest "incarnation" of Namaste!

We hope to see the new Namaste Bags in December.

Here is a sneak peek at the Crossbody Bag that Laura was holding in the video.

 This Crossbody Bag is full and Laura laid out everything that she had in the bag.
Our Knitter's Crossbody Bag was mindfully designed for those who travel light. With plenty of room for your phone, wallet, notions, and a small knitting project, the Crossbody is ideal for grabbing a few moments of peace on the way to dinner. Crafted from vegan leather and including knitting specific features like our Lotus Yarn Feeder (turns your handbag into a yarn bowl), a key leash (doubles as a tape-measure), and a decorative tassel (equipped with an emergency stitch marker), the Namaste Knitter's Crossbody Bag is designed to help you find Knitting Nirvana wherever you are.


  • Designed Specifically for Knitters - Sturdy Vegan Leather - Lots of Pockets - BPA & PVC-Free
  • Comfortably fits the Namaste Small or Medium Oh Snap Pouch (not included)
  • Five interior pockets (2 zippered, 3 open) keep your wallet and notions organized
  • A zippered exterior pocket ensures that your phone is both secure & handy
  • Top flap rolls up and stays open with cleverly placed magnets for easy access knitting
  • Our Signature 4-Lotus Lining is PVC-free, wipeable, and cleans easily
  • Outfitted with hardware in a sleek Gunmetal color
  • Five metal feet on the bottom provide stability and protection

KNITTING FEATURES: All Namaste bags come with an eco-friendly dust bag, a darning needle, a mini Knitter's Dot Journal (for keeping track of rows, pattern notes, etc.), an 8 inch tape measure/key leash, our patent pending Lotus Yarn Feeder, and a removable tassel with a Lotus Stitch Marker.

I spent time at home this afternoon working on accounting. It's HST time. I finished (and it's paid) so now it's time to knit. I looked at a computer screen for too many hours today.
