Gotta love a Mother-Daughter


Hello everyone!

I just could not wait to get this yarn photographed and sent out for you to see! From Uxbridge, this mother/daughter duo has chosen the name Lizzie-Anne, for their new line of yarns! And for being brand new to the indie dyeing circuit, these two have hit it out of the ballpark!
( I know it is hockey season, but baseball is a summer sport, and that is what I am hoping for right now...SUMMER!)

But until then, you can content yourself with these gorgeous "Soft Sock sets"....a squishy 75/25 mix with the sweetest colour combinations I have seen in a very long time! I just love the small hank of yarn for heels and toes!

In additon, and I am so honoured by this...they have named one of their yarns "The Purple Sock"!!! So please pop in, call or email,  and I will tuck one (or more) of these skeins aside for you..I have a feeling they will be going quickly. Don't forget I am always happy to mail yarn if you are too far away!!

Happy Knitting!

A New Year and a special new offering..a "Sock of the Month" Club!!

Hello everyone!

Many of you know how much I love supporting our Canadian indie dyers with their incredible artisan, in that vein, I want to share my latest venture....a "Sock of the Month" Club!

Five of our most fabulous indie dyers, all from Ontario: The Yarn Therapist, Dragon Strings, 3dogknits, Yarn Indulgences and Lizzie-Anne Yarns have signed on to create one-of-a-kind yarns for our newest "Sock of the Month" Club! Plus Jessica Hendry Designs is making us a great sock project bag!!

You will receive five skeins of stunning yarn, (one for each month of the Club), plus a terrific sock pattern for each month's yarn, one lovely project bag from Jessica Hendry Designs with the first month's sock project and a few other small surprises as we go along! Of course, there will be lots of help with any new techniques that might pop up in the patterns. Plus there will be a sample sock knit up for you to see!

If you are local, you can stop in and pick up your monthly Club package if you can't join us for the evening sessions. Or I can mail the package to you (postage will be extra) if you cannot pick up the package. These will be available on the last Wednesday of each month from February to June.  Choose which option works for you.

Each month starting on February 28 from 7-9 pm , we will meet and knit, socialize, drink tea and just have fun with our exclusive sock yarn.

The cost will be $195.00 plus HST, and space/yarns will be limited, so send me an email and I will add you to the Club. I am very excited about this newest venture, hope to hear from you soon!

Just to let you know the picture above is not the actual yarn or bag you will receive, they will each be unique and a surprise each month!!

Happy Knitting,
