Fun New Tools - Try your hand at a Lucet

We welcome summer buy adding some new products to our Patchwork Frog family.

We are now carrying hand crafted Wool Tree Mills products. We have stocked two items. Lucets and Wool tree wool stands.

A Lucet is a medieval wool fork that was used to make a square cording that can be used for trim, ties, belts laces and bracelets. Easy to use and easy to learn this is even a fun tool to teach your children, The best part is that it is small and easy to carry and requires no counting stiches or reading a pattern

We also have Wool Tree stands. Simple place your yarn ball on the stand through the center hole and knit. The tree rotated as you knit. Never have your yarn roll away from you again.

Reports Reviews and What is new for Spring in the world of yarn

The winter TNNA (National Needle Art) show has ended. I took classes and was able to see all the new items, yarn and patterns available for Spring and Summer and I will be sharing information and new arrivals as quickly as I am able to get things sorted and unpacked.

If you haven’t tired Tunisian Crochet because you thought it was only for blankets you will be very surprised. Several new books are available with easy and interesting patterns. I snagged a preview copy of Sheryl Theis latest book "Tunisian Crochet Encore" and I have already started to make the poncho on page 31 the book will be available in March
