It’s October – Let’s Cast-Off Chemo!

All year round our Pink Project helps raise funds for cancer research through the S.D. Ireland Cancer Research Fund.  Now that it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we want to say a big THANK YOU to the many knitters and crocheters who have purchased Pink Project sets and accessories.  Together, since 2006, we have sent over $246,000 to the S. D. Ireland Cancer Research Lab at the University of Vermont, getting closer every day to replacing chemotherapy with highly targeted, gentle, and effective immunotherapy. 
Visit the Pink Project Collection for needles, hooks, and accessories that contribute, and check out the S.D. Ireland Cancer Research Fund website for more information on the groundbreaking research that your purchase will help fund.

Denise2Go for Knitting & Crochet, “MOSAIC”

Denise2Go for Knitting & Crochet, “Mosaic” is ideal for the Fiber Artist who uses both needles and hooks in their yarn-crafting.  Whether you both knit and do Tunisian crochet, use a hook to execute complex stitches in your knitting, or knit in the Portuguese style (hook in the stitch-making hand, needle in the other), this set is for you! 

Available in
bright, pastel, or gray versions – or as an empty case to fill with your own needles and hooks!

FLEX Double Point Needles are here!

FLEX Double Pointed Needles make small projects knitted in the round just that much easier.  

New!  FLEX Double Pointed Needles replace traditional double points with a more flexible approach to knitting small projects in the round.  Interchangeable with all Denise products, this set of 3 flexible double pointed needles functions in the same way as the standard 4 or 5 rigid double pointed needles but without the frequent needle changes.  Divide stitches evenly on two needles, then knit with the third.  

Set includes 3 FLEX Double Pointed Needles (DPNs), composed of Denise Sharp Short Tips and 3 inch (8 cm) cords.  FLEX Double Pointed Needles are 8.5 inches (22 cm) long for US 5/3.75mm-10/6mm and 9.5 inches (24 cm) long for US 10.5/6.5mm-15/10mm.  

For an even shorter DPN, add a set of Two-inch (5 cm) cords.  For a longer DPN, add a set of Five-inch (13 cm) cords!

We have gotten so many positive emails about using them and would love to hear your feedback if you have already tried them out! 

Thank you, N.C., for leaving this review:
“These Flex DPNs are the best I have ever had. Tried metal dpns and bamboo dpns. I am so in love with my Flex dpns, I would never go back to [the others] since I started using them. Plus they are light and easy to maneuver. My most favorite DPN ever!!”

The original Pink Knitting Kit with gray needles is back with a new look!  Teal cords coordinate beautifully with the needles, and the neutrality of the light gray makes it easy to see complex patternwork.
