Starting the New Year Off Right!

January 3, 2011 § Leave a comment

Welcome to the flip side, dear readers. 2010 is behind us now and here at Be Sweet we’re looking forward to an exciting and productive 2011.

Speaking of out with the old, in with the new, Be Sweet was featured in the Vogue Knitting Winter 2010/2011 issue. In this vintage-style story, an original VK sweater from 1959 was updated using our Brushed Mohair. The sweater uses 6 (7, 8, 9, 10, 10) balls in burnt red for sizes X-small, small, medium, large, x-large and 2x. The issue hits stands tomorrow, January 4th. If you simply can’t wait until then, check it out on VK 360 at

There’s something really great about taking an old knitting pattern and updating it.

Raid your grandmother’s stash of knitting books and take some old patterns and use a fabulous new yarn to make a new version! We have so many interesting fibers today that were only a dream back then. Great colors, information at our fingertips and knitting shops to help.

Here’s to a knitting-filled 2011!
