News From Denise:

New and ready to ship!

Denise Interchangeable Crochet Hooks are ideal for Afghan/Tunisian crochet, double-ended crochet, and a wide variety of knitting applications. Hooks interchange with Denise knitting needles to open a whole new world of possibilities for creating unique fabrics.

Kit includes:

* 12 individual hooks, sizes F5 (3.75mm) to 19 (15mm)
* 7 cord lengths: two each 3" and 5", plus one each 9", 12" and 16"
* Four end buttons & two extenders
* Detailed Tunisian Crochet instructions courtesy of Interweave Press

Can be used as standard crochet hooks, or make Afghan/Tunisian hooks from 8-37” by using different combinations of cords in the kit. As always, 30”, 40”, and 52” cords are available separately to expand the possibilities even further. Hooks are also available individually packaged - ideal for double-ended crocheters or knitters who want to add a few hooks to their knitting kit.

A wide range of knitting applications includes easily picking up stitches for button bands, necklines, or modulars, expeditious cast-ons and bind-offs, and quickly picking up stitches after “frogging.” Add crochet to your knitting or knitting to your crochet with the flick of a wrist. Help your customers expand their fibercrafting horizons!

Since October 2006, the Pink Project has raised over $115,000 to support breast cancer research. Knitters are a powerful force! They’re planning to introduce the crochet kit in pink as well, but we haven’t settled on a timeline yet. We’ll keep you posted.

Feel free to contact us with any and all questions.

CPSIA Exempts Yarn

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has just exempted yarn from the rigorous lead testing and certification requirements required for children’s products under the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA). This is very good news indeed for the hand-knitting industry, which was worried about the implications widespread testing would have had on the manufacturer, all the way down the distribution chain.
