So, now we’re ready to talk about Akerworks swatch gauges, which are designed to take a bit of the stress out of your knitting projects. This product is kind of the punchline to the joke that starts with, “a knitter, an engineer, and an architect walk into a…. well, workshop, I guess!” The swatch gauge they designed makes swatching fun and accurate. Akerworks: We like making things.

The Homestead Hobbyist not only designs and dyes custom blends of fiber for a unique spinning experience, he also designs custom yarn. Milled and spun in small batches, the Crime Scene collection gives knitters and crocheters criminally decadent yarn with colorways such as Bloodstain; Suit Up, It’s A Mess In There; Tire Tracks; and Chalk Outline. 18.5 micron Merino, Shetland, and Mulberry Silk combine to make a soft, strong, and sleek 3-ply yarn, available in both DK and fingering. This is one crime you won’t mind being caught red-handed for!
