At Quince & Co Beautiful brioche goes to colorful new heights in our newest shawl: Introducing Tiger Flower, in soft, silken Tern!

Designed by Katrine Birkenwasser, this crescent shawl uses two colors of our fingering-weight wool/silk yarn, with pretty welting stripes and a border of blossoms of alternating color.

A shawl in Tern is a shawl for all seasons, and Tiger Flower is one to reach for any time of year.

Read more about our newest shawl to knit from Quince & Co.


Knitcircus is so happy to be working with Christina, the Healthy Knitter, supporting the Project Peace KAL again this year!  She's offering this wonderful KAL along with meditations on peace on The Healthy Knitter Blog every day December 1-21st.

We'll donate 10% of the purchase price of Knitcircus Project Peace Kits to Heifer International, supporting small family business and raising people out of poverty worldwide.

Product Notes

Lykke Needles Review $114 on Amazon from 3rd party seller

I have interchangeable sets by KnitPicks, Knitters Pride, Zings formerly owned DyaCraft.

I’ve knit quite a few projects on the Lykke Needles.

·        Size US 4 to 17 (3.5 mm to 12 mm) with 5 cords, stoppers and keys for tightening.

·        5” tips

·        Birchwood…as slick as wood can get. Wood color varies.

·        Case is faux suede and actually usable (compare with Zing)

·        Sharp points

·        Smooth joins. Cables seem to be compatible with Knitter’s Pride. Case much nicer.

·        Might try buying a fixed circular before getting the set.

Highly Recommended.


$14 on Amazon

Hangs over neck. Comfortable. Lights are good. 3 settings.

Have a great week, haste ye back and hold your knitting close.
