Great Canadian Yarns just keep on coming!! 

Hello everyone,
I am not certain how a yarn can be Vivid and subtle at the same time!! But this one is!

Beautifully artisan dyed in Calgary,it is just both Merino with nylon and Merino with nylon and a bit of sparkle, these lovely skeins will knit up into gorgeous socks, shawls, and tops. The feel of it sliding off the needles and through your hands is just amazing!

Some of the skeins have that added bling to them with a sparkly thread which doesn't seem to show up in the photos .
I hope you get a chance to drop in soon just to see ( and FEEL!) this new Canadian yarn..
Happy knitting,

Azel Sweater

A super quick and really cute knit!!

Hello everyone,
 This darling little sweater/poncho is blowing up the Internet! It is EVERYWHERE! There are literally hundreds of them completed on Ravelry.

 So, of course, the Purple Sock fairies had to knit one up for the shop, lol! This piece is fabulous over tights, leggings, jeans and is a super stylish way to both bring in the fall, and head into winter ( which is coming quickly my friends!)
The purchased pattern on Ravelry is a bargain as it comes in sizes from toddler to adult,  and it knits up so quickly in great bulky yarns...King Cole and Bravo Big, both 100% acrylic, for ease of care...
Hope to see you soon,
Happy Knitting,

Totallyinked Yarns

Great new Canadian Indie dyer 

Hello everyone,

I have always loved showcasing new Canadian yarns and indie dyers, and I must say, it is getting easier and easier with all these gorgeous yarns and rovings that are being created across the country!
"TotallyInked" yarns from Sarnia is the creator of these deeply pigmented colours..
So rich and intense, it is like looking into a box of Crayons! Sonya's dyeing is worth a drop in just to see ( and feel!) it in person...hope to see you soon.
Happy Knitting,
