To us knitters, heaven can be a luxurious cashmere blend, caressing our fingers while we knit. Heaven can be a pattern so simple and intuitive, just using knit and purl stitches, knitting up to a beautiful shawlette with an intriguing geometric pattern. Heaven is when something you knit is so soft you never want to take it off again. Heaven can be that very special color only our favorite dyer can achieve. Heaven can have many dimensions and interesting structures, like space – and very much like this shawlette when left unblocked. Heaven can be big, smooth, shiny and beautiful, like this shawlette after blocking. Heaven is a pattern that uses exactly the amount of yarn you have. Heaven can also be a daydream while we knit, maybe of a trip through space, to galaxies far away, leaving all troubles on earth behind us. So here’s “Heaven and Space”, the perfect shawlette to embody just that.
If you prefer to block your shawl, the pattern will lay flat. You can choose to knit as many repeats as you like, making the pattern adaptable to the amount of yarn you have.
Contains charts and written-out pattern.The pattern "Heaven & Space" is part of Martina Behm´s book "The Hitchhiker Collection".
When I got this yarn with its silky green-golden shimmer, I just knew it had to become a pair of angel wings: ”Be my Angel“ is knit entirely in garter stitch and will feel like a warm, loving hug and look beautiful in any soft, variegated yarn. Due to its special symmetric shape there are several nice ways to wear this: over the shoulders or wrapped multiple times around your neck. And when you put it on, you will always have that little moment when you spread the wings and pretend you are an angel that is about to take off to do good things for the people in this world! It also makes a great gift for anyone who you want to feel protected and loved by a handmade angel hug. The knitting is logical, simple and relaxing and suitable for beginners or advanced knitters who enjoy a little comfort knitting.

Can the concept of an interchangeable needle set be improved any further? Yes, it can! I have been using several different needle systems over the years, and all of them had the problem that after a while, the needle tips would become loose, yarn would be caught in the screwing section or the tips would fall off entirely (a catastrophe when you are knitting lace...!). The click system by German manufacturer Addi solves this problem: You insert the end of the cable, press and turn – and the needle tip is secured for good. It won't come off, even after many hours of knitting. The mechanism is not hard to learn (it's shown in this Youtube video (opens in new window, in German – but you will see how it works!). It's a patented, true innovation and I think it's really awesome as it makes knitters' lives easier.
What I also like about it: If you need to set stitches aside you can just use a connector to attach the ends of the cable to each other (this would not work with other systems!).
If you would like to make the switch to the Addi click system, this luxurious needle set is four you: 8 pairs of Addi Lace tips (sharp, suitable for complex patterns) in 3.5 to 8 mms, 3 cables (lengths 60, 80 and 100 cm) and a connector (which lets you combine the cables to 140, 160 and 180 cm). They come in a beautiful pink-purple satin case, so there won't be any chaos and you will always find the tips you need. On the back of the case there's a zippered pouch for the cables. It's also a great gift for your favorite knitter.
This premium knitting needle set features different pairs of addi-click needle tips and addi-click cords in different lengths that are quickly combined to create the exact circular knitting needle you need.These needles are great quality "Made in Germany". The needle sizes are printed on the points (metric and US).
