Organic ... as in toys and Dollies


Knitting Daily. I signed up a while ago and it is really neat. It is, as they say, a newsletter for knitters by knitters. It is filled with free patterns, tips, and more. All you have to do is provide your email address to them.

This week there was an article with several patterns for toys. Both knitting and crocheting toys. And you can use organic yarns such as O~Wool Balance™, Pakucho, O~Wool 2-ply makes great socks too), O~Wool Classic™ or even Green Sheep™ . Most can be knit or crocheted using one skein. You can even make a dolly with clothes. We have patterns for those as well - Oat Couture Dollies - Visits Hawaii,

In yarn news at The Yarn Grove, I have a huge shipment of new sock yarn sitting here. I will photograph it soon and put it up. In the meantime, here is the description:
  • Hand Dyed sock yarn but not from a female

  • Has little colored freckles

  • So very soft
      • Stay tuned to The Yarn Grove ... This yarn was suggested to us by a customer. We contacted the company and gave it a test drive and loved it! She will be receiving a free skein of her color choice too! If there is a yarn you would like to see at The Yarn Grove, email me at jane@theyarngrove.com and if we pick that line up, (kinda like a pick up line, hehehe) you too will receive a free skein. Simple as that...

        Glad to see that you are carrying the Hand Painted Knitting Yarns by Bjorn and Rex. I fell in love with them when I saw them in Columbus. I spoke with Rex I think, and he was a very personable man. Or if it was Bjorn, then he was personable. LOL

        I'm enjoying Knitting Daily, too. I like your suggestions for knitting toys out of organic yarn.

        I started making one of these animals from Knitting Daily last week using Woolly Boully yarn. It is striping and is going to look so cute when done
