Sometimes there are just some really fun things to look at online... Thanks to Sandra for sharing this fun link to an article in The Guardian with some really great photographs of knitwear created to camouflage into urban settings. . . enjoy!

Camoflauge Knitting


On the Classes Front . . .

Socks and Brioche and Mittens, oh my! . . . the lovely Kate Atherley is teaching a few of our favourite classes this month ! Check out the dates and details on our classes page


Give us a call to scoop up your space! We have your Beginner Top Down Socks class as well as a Toe Up socks class on the roster this month too! ALL the socks classes ... to use all the beautiful sock yarns like. What could be more perfect than Custom Fit socks?


Plus Kate is teaching a new class: ahhh... Closure.

This is a class all about buttons and zippers!


Yarn, Yarn, Yarn...

TurtlePurl Is Back...

i am thrilled that TurtlePurl Yarns is back in the shop! Under new management and going strong, the new head dyer at TP has resurrected our 5th anniversary colourway ...and I LOVE it. (We are currently sold out... sorry... but it is coming back...not to worry)! We have brought in the scrumptious Softshell MCN Striped Turtle Toes Sock yarn and it just begs for a wee sip and knit session!



A restock of Julie Asselin Leizu DK

and of Zen Yarn Garden Serenity 20 Sock

are arriving any day too! Oh and Lichen and Lace too!


And also. . .

Have you played with the Manos Del Uruguay Fino yet? It is such a pleasure to knit! Plus there are several FREE PATTERNS for this yarn! One of my favourites is the Rings of Rings cowl which uses one mini set plus one skein of a contrast colour!!



I hope your kick off to 2018 has been a good one, filled with lots of love, laughter and plenty of contented stitching time! A friend brought a wee quote into the shop the other week that i would love to share:

" The world is a woven basket. Every stitch counts." --A.D. POSEY


Happy Stitching!
