From angelschest, this Yarn Barn Project Organizer is one of the most brilliant ways I’ve seen to manage all those different lengths of yarn when knitting an ambitious intarsia sweater or making striped projects. As someone who loves all color work knitting, this caught my attention immediately. It is made with care and they can stain it in any finish you like, as a special request. I am putting this on my wish list!
From PancakeAndLulu, this SNOW Mohair- Natural Mohair Yarn is luscious and all natural. It is undyed and unbleached. I think this yarn would make the coziest lace neck warmer! For those intimidated by mohair, try holding it together with a strand of merino wool to add extra softness and a pretty halo without the stress. At $9 for 120yds, this yarn is worth every penny. It’s so dreamy!
Dolce and Gabbana featured an entire collection of color-work knits in their Fall 2010 Collection at Milan Fashion Week, last week. Among my favorites was this knit dress with matching scarf:
My friend Jim’s first reaction to this was, “Is this so you can watch porn in public?”
From YarnPlayCafe, this Large Crafty Project Tote Bag is perfect for carrying around your latest WIPs. It is hand painted and can fit up to 8 skeins of yarn with room for your pattern and needles/notions. At $15, this bag is a steal!
From GoMonkeyDesign, this set of 2 Pattern Keepers in Robot will keep you in the right place in your pattern, no matter how many times you put it down or toss it in your bag. Every knitter should have a set. And how cute is that print?

Matthew Schaefer is a singer/songwriter living in Los Angeles. After graduating from Indiana University Jacob’s School of Music, he released his first self-titled studio album.
In his music, Matt weaves witty pop culture references with piano interludes. His lyrics are very true to life and I would bet anything that halfway through the CD you’ll catch yourself singing along. Ben Folds fans will love his music, but most would say he’s giving Ben Folds a run for his money.
Matthew has performed for large audiences in New York, Chicago, and LA. At his last performance in Chicago, Matt debuted Mistletoe Song at Goose Island. It’s one of my favorites!
Matthew has also written songs for CBC Commercial spots and for Hallmark Corporation. You can currently find Matt “living, working, and making it work” in LA.
His next show is at Bar Lubitsch in Los Angeles on March 16th. You can find information on this event on his Facebook Fan Page. Feel free to tell your friends, if you like!
He is also beginning his “Dirty Laundry Tour,” which will take place at various laundromats throughout the Los Angeles Metro Area.

There’s more exciting stuff to come from Matt; he’s currently in the studio recording his EP “Things That Fly (But Mostly Walk).”
