Those with arthritis or joint or muscle pain in their hands will welcome these beautiful knitting needles from Laurel Hill. With the strength of birch wood and the beauty of rosewood, Symfonie Rose Cubic needles are highlighted by sharp points and an easy-to-hold shape. As a result of their unique design, Symfonie Rose needles are included in Laurel Hill’s selection of arthritis-friendly fiber arts tools.

Made by hand, the Symfonie wood needles reflect the same quality as Laurel Hill’s vast selection of knitting needles and crochet hooks. Because these needles are resistant to water absorption, they cannot warp and remain straight and strong for years of use.

The Symfonie Rose Cubics are offered in rosewood textured densified laminated wood in needle sizes from 2.0mm (US 0) to 8.0mm (US 11). For further details and to view the video visit:

A little about me: When I was 15, the fabulous woman who would one day become my mother-in-law shared her love of knitting and patiently taught me.  I quickly associated knitting with a warm, loving environment where I felt safe and learned to revel in the “zen” of yarn craft.  To this day, the touch of yarn enhanced by the gentle clicking of needles can take away the day’s stress in an instant. In my work life I am a public relations professional who loves to write content, work with the media and help my clients grow their businesses.  Working with Laurel Hill will allow me to fulfill both my passions!

I am excited about the opportunity and truly look forward to opening a dialogue with you, our readers, and learning more about what you are looking for in the world of knitting needles and crochet hooks.

As one of my favorite knitters once said, “My needles are as much a part of my craft as my yarn.” We hope you agree!

Looking forward to sharing news and getting your feedback. Happy yarn crafting!

All the best,

Phyllis

Shoutout to Mary for winning a crotchet hook set from our ongoing contest. Take a look at Mary’s story:

“My Mom taught my older brother to crochet and I would BEG her to teach me, but she kept saying that I was too young.  Finally, when I was seven, she taught me thread crochet. Through the years, crochet has played a major role in my life. It carried me through tough times, when I sold items that I made, both in thread and yarn.  It became my Physical Therapy when I broke my right hand and had to build strength and range of motion back into it.  It was what I specialized in when I worked with dollhouse miniatures and I crocheted with thread finer than sewing thread.  It was crochet I turned to when I wanted to design and sell patterns.  The photo is my Ozark Morning Shawl.”

New Set Winner!

Hey Laurel Hill Friends!

We wanted to give a shout out to our set winner of the quarter, Guadalupe Longworth.

Take a peek at his story:

” I was taught to crochet by mother; when I was nine years old. My mother was my inspiration becasuse she self taught herself how to crochet with out the benefit of speaking English. Because yarn was so expensive; I learned to make dolies out of thread and so my journey began. By the time I was in high school my beautiful table cloth was was selected to be part of a very special exhibit at the Anaheim Convention Center. I can honestly say that every project that I have completed has only improved my knowledge of crochet so all projects are my favorite.

I would like to Thank Laurel Hill for making a dream come true because her beautiful crochet hooks have been on my wishlist for a long time. All I can say is Thank You for an awesome gift.

CONGRATULATIONS GUADALUPE!

This Weeks Winner!

Congratulations to Jill Smail! 

“My great-aunt tried to teach me to crochet when I was a child. I could never get past the “chain” and finally just gave up. About a year ago, my mom was working on a lap blanket and I asked her to teach me. She showed me a basic single crochet stitch. I was so excited to start my own blanket! Rather quickly I got bored with it and expanded to try a hat. Fast forward to now and I’ve started my own shop with hand made goodies and photography props. Crocheting lets me relax and unwind after a long day! I’ve truly never loved anything more than a hook and my next project in hand (never leave home without it)!”
