Quick and Easy Cowls

Hello everyone!
Just a really quick note to send along these two fabulous cowls, just in case you are racking your brain for something quick to make..trust me, these can be done before Christmas!!! 
This first one is done with Rasta a lovely soft and super chunky hand dyed 100% wool from Malabrigo using this quick and easy free pattern from Ravelry
The Second one is knit from a new yarn in the store called Naturalia , this is a natural coloured super chunky yarn from Italy. I have knit this cowl in a very easy pattern that I made up, but there are lots of other patterns you could find on Ravelry, This was done on 15mm needles so was super quick and big chunky cowls are so in fashion right now, who wouldn’t want one!!

Plus, the fabulous "Bling Your String" project bags are back in stock, as well as the adorable, functional and sparkly stitch markers she has made just for me!!( and yes, of course they are PURPLE, lol!) they make great stocking stuffers too!!
Don’t forget about the 12 days of Christmas special, lots of great deals coming up this week and next

Extended Christmas Hours.

I will be open Monday December 22nd  10 til 5 pm  and Tues December 23rd  10 til 5pm

Wed. December 24th 10 til 3pm.

Merchant madness and another great cowl


Hello Everyone!

 Well, the lights are twinkling, the snow is glistening, so I just had to showcase this beautiful Diamond yarn called "Jewel Metallic"..it is just gorgeous! Lightweight,glittery and very reasonable..this is the perfect yarn to knit up that last minute gift for someone special. On size 10mm needles, you will knit this up in no time!

 It is like a wonderful piece of jewellery, stunning enough to invite all sorts of compliments, and the perfect accessory for the black and jewel toned tops we wear at this time of year!

  I have lots of colours in stock and at $7.50 a ball, they are flying out of the door!!

    And just a quick reminder, our Merchant Madness is this Wednesday, December 10th, from 5-9 PM...join us for a cup of Christmas tea, a sugar cookie. When you make a purchase, you can roll the dice and whatever you roll you will receive that percentage  off of everything you are buying.
So come out and see how lucky you are!!

Happy knitting,
