 Another great summer yarn 

Hello everyone!

  Well, I cannot believe that it is August already! And this hot weather calls for some sweet cotton blendsocks. I just love the sherbet/ ice cream colours of this Katia Bombay yarn!

  This Superwash yarn with 41% cotton, 39% wool and 20% Polyester and Polymide is just the perfect combination for yoga socks, running socks, bed socks or whatever strikes your fancy. 

 And, at just $ 13.99 a ball, AND as a special to you my wonderful customers I would like to give you an additional 20% off for just one week. Which means you will get it for $11.19  a ball!! 

So pick out your colours, send me an email, and I will tuck a couple of these away for you!

 Happy Knitting,

A Quick and easy summer top!! 

Hi  Everyone:

Hope you are all doing well. Just a small housekeeping note. Starting this week we will no longer be doing appointments on  Fridays. .  Hours are still open Thursdays by appointment  10 am to 3 pm.   then drop in  Fridays and Saturdays 10 am to 3pm.  Thanks for being flexible to all of these changes.

Anyway onto the main reason for this newsletter. I have just finished knitting this great little top, it is one I have wanted to knit for several years. It is a loose fitting fun little top and you make the pattern your own as you knit it. picking which stitch pattern you want to do next.   It is a free pattern on Ravelry , in fact it is two free patterns, I know that sounds strange, there is the original version which is super  simple to knit just two big rectangles that you then sew together. Here is the link
or this version of it which is what I used.  In this version you can do much more size alterations and it is knit all in one piece for no sewing at the end.  there is a little bit of calculating LOL but she maps it all out for you. With this version you can use any yarn , any weight and make any size you want.

I have made this top out of Juniper Moon's Zooey a wonderful blend of 60% cotton and 40% linen. which gets more lovely the more you wash it, and comes in so many really great colours.

So for $60.00 worth of yarn and a free pattern from Ravelry you to can knit this great little top.

If you would like me to put a colour  aside for you just send me an email and we can go from there.

Take care and Happy knitting

A fun and easy poncho!!

Hello everyone!

I love when a project can go from season to season, and this one certainly does! With either a dress, a tank top, a turtleneck or a light cotton blouse, this poncho easily transitions through three seasons!

And, proud Grandmother that I am, I could not resist using this photo of one of my granddaughters in this cute poncho knit from this gorgeous Katia  “Alabama” yarn. There are four colour-ways, as shown and this kit comes with 6 balls of this 50 cotton/50 acrylic yarn and the pattern for just $45.99 plus HST.

It is a super simple knit, basically just two rectangles, but the different colours keep It interesting and fun to knit up while you are sitting on the dock or in the boat, or just gazing out at your garden...

As always, shoot me an email, choose your colours and we will connect you with this quick and easy kit.

Happy knitting,
