When I first started fantasizing about having a shop, and selling and creating the kinds of goods I couldn’t find, one of the very first ideas (maybe the first idea) I sketched in my notebook was a beautiful little leather pouch holding equally beautiful, simple brass or gold ring stitch markers. Two years (and a few design evolutions) later, it finally exists! I am thrilled — even more so because I’m making the pouches myself — and I hope you love this little beauty as much as I do.
Also new in the shop today are still more of the finest tools a knitter or crocheter could hope for: Indian rosewood crochet hooks, chatelaine safety scissors and bone double-pointed needles. Bone DPNs! I’m rolling them all out today because I think they make fantastic little Valentine’s Day gifts, but of course like everything at Fringe Supply Co., I think they’re beautiful, functional goods a knitter would do well to treat his- or herself to. So get get ’em!
Have a great weekend, everyone! Tell me what you’re working on …
p.s. If you’re wondering about the color of the veg-tanned leather and aren’t familiar with how beautifully it ages, here are some examples from a couple of makers I admire: Infusion Fibers and KC Co. I’ve claimed the very first stitch marker pouch for myself and am so looking forward to watching it age.
