Slip Stitch Coasters by Emily Kintigh for KnitPicks

Create this cute set of coasters while practicing some easy colorwork. Each coaster is knit in one piece using simple slip stitches and is thick enough to protect your table from both hot and cold beverages. Perfect for gift-giving, the set can be worked up quickly in three different colors of Dishie yarn.

Organizing/Planning 🗓

I love planners.   The Knitter’s Planner is a product envisioned by Stephanie Palmer, creator of the Quilter’s Planner, and designed in collaboration with Kara Gott Warner, veteran craft publishing editor, designer, and business coach.

This planner lets you create a keepsake of both your personal and knitting life.  It includes a monthly calendar/appointment tracker, featured patterns, project planning pages that include needle and yarn stash inventory, and a reference section.

Preorder yours now.
