i just love how this knits up!

Hello everyone,

Sirdar Dapple is a great yarn with terrific stitch definition.

This 100 gram ball in a 75/25 blend of acrylic and wool, comes in these lovely, subtle shades to make up into sweaters, vests, hats, and shawls.

I hope you come in and see ( and feel!) for yourself, you will just love it!

Happy Knitting,

Ahhhh! Noro strikes again!  

Hello everyone,

I am not sure what it is about Noro, the colour, the texture, the patterns...wait, it is ALL of those things!

It is just one of the coolest yarns to come along in years, and it just keeps getting better and better.

I just adore this sweater, especially the lovely lacey edging, and the patterns in the latest NORO magazine are fabulous..with both knitted and crocheted items, there is something for everyone.

This  Noro Kureyon  works up so quickly, and with Christmas less than two months away? Well, what can I say,  but to hurry on in and check this out....gorgeous colours, quick knit and great pricing? Sounds like a win-win to me!

Happy Knitting!

p.s. There are some great free patterns too, with purchase of yarn, just in case you don't see anything in the Noro magazine....

Dragon Strings is coming to


Hi Everyone 

Dragon Strings is an indie dye studio that focuses on fantastic one of a kind colourways and smooshy-smooth yarn bases. Inspiration is taken from photos, nature, geek culture and literary sources. You never know what's going to come out of the pot this week!

Visit the shop on Saturday, November 11th to see all the pretty yarns that she's bringing. We'll have the whole line on display from gradients to lace to new super chunky light as a feather smooshies. We might even have a few of the 'can't keep in on the shelves' Yaksha! Come early for best selection as everything is One Of A Kind, although she does take custom orders if you find something that you just NEED to have in blue, or green, or rainbow.
Annika will be here for you to meet and talk with about her lovely yarns from  10 am to 4 pm , so don't miss out on this opportunity to see and purchase  her wonderful  yarns and meet this talented dyer!! 

Happy Knitting
