June 30th 2008 Due to a technical error at our web hotel, signing up for our Newsletter was impossible between June 12th and June 21st. If you tried signing up between those dates, please try again! Sorry for the inconvenience, and thank you so much, Carol W, for making us aware of the problem.
June 30th 2008 New additions have been made to the Errata pages of  The Summer Breeze Collection (Melissa),  The Mellow Tone Collection  (Double), and The Out of the Woods Collection (Grove).
June 30th 2008 We have discovered an error in the Abbreviations list for Designer's Choice books 9 thru 14: Sk2p should read slip 1, k2tog, psso. This correction has been added to the errata pages for the books affected.
Apr 7th 2008 We know, the new book has been in the stores for some time. But we've been terribly busy this late winter and early spring, and simply haven't had the time to publish photos from it until now, and we apologize for this. But here it is, The Dreamweaver Collection, just as packed with exciting new designs as all the previous books in the Designer's Choice series.
Apr 7th 2008 Several updates to yarns pages. There is a brand new yarn for the season, Bambouclé, introduced in 15 colors. There are also 8 new colors in Cable Cotton, 8 in Cotton Frappé, and 8 in Hempathy. Not only are there new colors, we have decided to take new photographs and double the size of the color samples for the additions. This way, it will hopefully be easier to judge from the website images if a color is for you. If the innovation is well received, we will keep the new size for upcoming yarns and colors, and upsize a large number of old but still available colors as well. From now on, we will also indicate if a color has been discontinued in the USA (but stores may still have it).
Mar 30th 2008 New additions have been made to the Errata pages of Viking Patterns for Knitting (Fjalar), The Viking Knits Collection (Tordis), The Summer Breeze Collection (Ivy), The Enchanted Garden Collection  (Daphne), The Second Viking Knits Collection (Hild).  The Sunny Side Collection (Brooke), The Walk in the Park Collection (Stina & Viveca), and The Out of the Woods Collection (Runnel).
