Check out our knockers!

Greetings from Stitches Texas!  We’re having a blast in booth 517, talking to crafters and, okay, maybe doing a little shopping of our own.

However, we want to share something else with you.  While we’re at Stitches Texas, we’re showing our knockers to the world!

We speak, of course, of knitted knockers, which we made to support knittedknockers.org.  It’s a great organization dedicated to providing knitted prostheses to women who have lost a breast to cancer.  For this contest, each vote is one dollar, with proceeds benefitting the organization.  It’s a creative way to help people in need.

We entered two pairs in the contest.

First, Sparkle Nation!  Designed by Amy Gunderson, these use our 10th anniversary yarn, Universe.  There’s a “best branding” category, so we made sure to brand these knockers.

Not that kind of branding.

Sparkle Boobs!

Amy put a little “UY” at the base.  We love these fancy sparkly numbers.  Frankly, we’d put our knockers up against anybody else’s any day of the week.

But those aren’t the only pair we’ve got on display!

Designer Tori Gurbisz is new to our team, but has instantly fit right in with the Universal family.  She designed a pair in Bamboo Pop, complete with frilly Whisper Lace lingerie.

Ooh La La!

Tori used her pair to make the point that every woman deserves to feel beautiful.  The ribboned lace is symbolic of that.

If you’re at Stitches Texas and feel like judging peoples’ knockers, go by the wall and see what’s front and center.  Our knockers could always use support, but however you vote, it’s all for a good cause. There are some truly bodacious entries and more than a handful really stand out and demand attention.

Happy knitting!

On The Road to Stitches West!

We’re packed and ready to fly out to Stitches West 2014, happening this weekend Feb 23-24!

Suzy the CuddlebunnyThis is a fun show that we always look forward to.  It’s a great opportunity to connect with our customers and fellow knitters – and to pick up some delicious new yarn.

We’ll be offering kits for some of our popular patterns, like Suzy the Cuddlebunny in Wicked Fur.  Suzy will be at the show, supervising us in booth 609.   Stop by and give her a hug!

On Sunday at noon, Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton will be in the booth signing copies of her latest book Poems: Windfall and answering questions about texture and color.  Cornelia’s a fantastic resource and very generous with her time and talent.  It’s a great opportunity to meet a legendary designer.
