The Farm: No needles in haystacks
More of these popular sellers will be coming to market soon!
Here at the farm, there are no needles in the haystack! Where are they? You'll find them on display throughout our yarns at the market. Blue, purple, red, green, and natural colored balls are available. Other really cute needles have acorns or strawberries on the ends. Why, we even have pumpkins! The fruit and nut needles are so popular, we cannot keep up in making them, so if you see them and like them, don't wait to buy them!
All needles are carefully and expertly crafted with strong woods that will please you for years of knitting. Our specialized tips make for easy knitting, with points sharp enough to enter a stitch cleanly, without unnecessary bulk or dullness. These needles are suitable for all gauges of yarn, are designed by an avid knitter, and pre-tested before sold. Try a pair when making a hat, scarf, mittens, or a sweater. They also make great gifts, especially when paired with a couple of skeins of yarn! Watch for our size 13's! They sell out quickly, so if you see a color you like, don't wait!

Stay cool everyone! (Isn't this just a GREAT time to knit! Too hot to be outside...isn't knitting the perfect excuse to SIT where it's COOL?? giggle, giggle :)
