Making No. 12: Dusk.

Happy to announce that the latest issue of Making is in!

The theme of Issue No. 12 is dusk, a theme that’s explored in knitting, crochet, sewing, dyeing, quilting, rug hooking, and embroidery – projects for makers of all kinds!

The mood of dusk is conjured by shades of purple and gray, which appear in many iterations throughout this issue.

Contributors include Kristine Vejar, Susan B. Anderson, Paula Pereira, Norah Gaughan, Leila Raven, and others.

Beautifully photographed and lovingly produced, Making is a treat of a publication. We still have copies of No. 9: Simple and No. 11: Dawn, in case you missed them – $30 each. Look for Making and other new publications here at the Hillsborough Yarn Shop, or head to our online order form to purchase a copy for local pickup or shipping!

What to knit with BT Tones?

Brooklyn Tweed’s new yarn, Tones, is already turning heads here at the Hillsborough Yarn Shop. What to knit with this colorful stuff? Here are some ideas!

There are two new patterns especially for this yarn, Jared Flood’s “First Raglan Sweater” and Lis Smith’s “Sparkwood” cabled hat.

Because Tones can easily substitute for Shelter, there’s a world of patterns to choose from; here are some ideas from both the Brooklyn Tweed pattern archive and independent designers!


BT Tones in Melba Overtone, a “Docklight” pullover-to-be.


BT Tones in Granita Overtone and Granita Undertone, soon to become a “Turbulence Cowl.”

Look for Brooklyn Tweed Tones in the worsted weight section here at our shop – we’re open from 11:00 am – 5:00 pm, Tuesdays – Saturdays, for drop-in shopping, no appointment required!
