Oh lovely Regia!!

Hello Everyone,

 

  One of the nicest sock yarns I carry is Regia....gorgeous colours with a wonderful feel and now, a brand new one which is perfect for the man in your life ( or for whoever wears lots of denim!).

 

Regia's "Jean Colour" is perfect for those crisp fall days when you pull on a sweater, your favourite jeans and a pair of these socks to head out apple picking, leaf raking or sitting by the campfire late into the fall evening. With 75% wool and 25% nylon, these will last and last, and although I should not be mentioning it...they would make fabulous Christmas gifts!! 



So, right now, until Labour Day, all Regia sock yarns are 10% off at The Purple Sock...stop by, see the lovely colours and stock up your sock stash!

Don't forget to mention this email to get the 10% off as this is only for you my loyal customers!!



And one more quick note, the latest Rug Hooking magazine is in..with lots of great ideas to spur you on to your next project....
 
Happy Knitting

New Madeline Tosh Arrivals'


Hello everyone,
  Well, in spite the very warm weather this week, we all know that Fall is
just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate the season than
with Madeline Tosh?!

In addition to our regular Tosh DK and Prairie, we have a brand new treat
called Twist Light, with 25% Nylon for all you lovers of Madeline Tosh, you
can now make socks with it!!

And the new colours? Amazing, stunning, deep, rich...oh, there are not
enough words to describe the simply scrumptious colours, plus I just love
that this yarn is ethically sourced in South Africa and beautifully hand
dyed in Texas, and that it now lives in my shop!

There is only one glitch in this story and that is the US Dollar, which
sadly has affected the price of this gorgeous yarn..so while our previous
stock will remain at the old price, the new stock has increased  to cover
the whole US/Canadian dollar business..not fun, but a fact of life for now
��

Just a note to everyone in the Maderia knit along. Tomorrow Aug 18th will be
our last day to meet, as most are finished their top.
Stay tuned for info about the next knit along!!

One more note....our "Magic Cathy" is back from her summer travels and has
started her Help Sessions back up  here at The Purple Sock every Friday,
1:30 pm til 3:30 pm.  Just call to reserve your spot ( limited to four
students) and for just $10.00 for two hours, you will get your knitting
unscrambled, get back on the right track, pick up dropped stitches, figure
out short rows, learn to turn a heel  or whatever else is bugging you!
Private lessons also available  for $15.00 a hour.   Just give us a call and
reserve your spot.

Happy Knitting!

Thanks So much !!

 
 
 
Hello everyone!

 

Just a quick note to thank you all for coming out  for Canada Day and making it so special! It was great to see people knitting, spinning, rug hooking and just generally having a super time!

 


 

The two trees which we "yarn-bombed" ( plus the amazing spinning wheel!!) garnered lots of attention...so much so that I thought we might continue the tradition next year! 

 

So, if you are interested, and have some extra red and white yarn hanging around, ( we have some free here at the shop as well), we would welcome some knitted or crocheted pieces to add to the collection for next Canada Day.

 

Thanks again to everyone who came out and supported us....you are a very special group of ladies ( and men!!)

 



Happy Knitting,

 

Lynn
