This is the perfect cross between a sweater and
poncho...A Swoncho!!!

Hello everyone,

Fall is here and winter is coming, so this is the perfect transition piece! This KAL will
be run by my friend and super knitter Sonya, and will start on Wednesday, October 3rd from 1:30 to 3:30. and run for as many weeks as we need to get most people finished it.

 We will be using a gorgeous Estelle Alpaca and Merino yarn in  23  lovely  shades.

The swoncho is here at the shop for you to
come in and try on, and fall in love with! It might look a bit strange  but once you try it on you will be amazed at how great it feels. Also check out the pictures on Ravelry as the ones I took do not show if off so well.  The link is below.

     I cannot wait to choose my colours and start this project with you all!  As always,  this is a KAL not a class so there is no charge but  I do  appreciate you purchasing the pattern and yarns from me. This is going to be a fun one for sure!

Happy Knitting,

Crochet-a-Long with me!!.

Hello everyone!

I love throwing something different into the mix every once in a while, and this is it!
A “Crochet-a-Long”!

While we have had many KAL’s, this CAL from King Cole is a beautiful blanket called “Flowers in the Window”. In this gorgeous colourway, the kit comes with 34 balls of lovely, soft, DK weight acrylic yarn that will crochet up into a gorgeous squishy heirloom.

This project is perfect for even the very novice crocheter. If you read this blog post they talk about that. Don't be confused by  the date that they say it starts, that is the date that you would receive the yarn requirements and hook sizes etc. The actual patterns do not start til Oct. 8th. As Estelle has made us up kits we don't need to worry about picking yarns as in your kit you will have everything you need. As an added bonus I will include the crochet hock in the size you need!!

As always, this is not a class per se....a different clue will be released every two weeks, and we will help each other through this exciting project!

The kit costs $138.00 and the CAL will start on Friday, October 12th from 1:30 to 3:30pm and we will meet every other week.....shoot me an email to let me know you are interested and I will add your kit to the order. See you soon!

Happy Knitting,
