StarKnuts & Knits Logo

Starknuts is conveniently located in Diagnon Alley and open to all Floo Networks with a sizeable fire place. Upstairs from the coffee shop is the Yarn shop for all your knitting and crocheting needs.

We use a special charm so that your beverage remains at your preferred temperature for as long as you have it. We offer a variety of flavors and drinks, both hot and cold.

Drop by and stay awhile! Shop for yarn and sit about in the cafe area catching up with your mates and/or working on your latest project!

Our Mascot is Fabulous Cat. Don't worry, she has been charmed so she does not shed and does not cause allergies.

I got my Christmas swap Package :)

Yay! I got my swap Package from lysianna  today :)
This is my first swap so I was/am really exited :)
I really didn't expect to get so much (and I feel kind of bad how small the package I sent was when I saw all this.)
Here's a pic of it all

I love the stocking it is crocheted with this white fluffy yarn on top witch I really like.
The coffee mug unfortunately lost its handle on the way over. But I love it all the same. It's Starbucks I'm so happy I have something from Starbucks (we don't have it in Iceland)
The jar is filled with chocolate cocoa mix and has a little whisk hanging from it (I had it turned the other way, whoops!) it's adorable.
I have a bigger pic of the stitch markers/earrings those are awesome :)

I've wanted to make a tea cosy for years.  The Harry Potter House Cup on Ravelry finally gave me a good reason.  I followed the basic pattern by Yasmin .  I used two skeins of Burnt Pumpkin and placed a stitch marker on one of the skeins to keep the confusion to a minimum.   Added a crocheted stem and curl, no leaves, leaves were too much.

My cosy is keeping my tea warm and lovely as I type.
