What a super hot summer we are having. I hope that you have air conditioning where ever you are. When you feel cool - it makes for great knitting. It is lovely and cool here in the shop, so hope to see you. We have been quite busy the last few days with people starting their fall/Christmas knitting. Most of our fall yarns have arrived - earlier than usual - which is great!  A few more "surprises" hopefully will be arriving soon.

Knitting "projects" for babies and toddlers are fun to do in warm weather. The yarns are thinner, lighter and work up so nicely. In the picture you will see several projects that I am sure you would enjoy knitting. The poncho -  is made of a new yarn called Cupcake. We all love to eat cupcakes so I am sure that you would love to knit with this lovely soft yarn. It comes in 5 delicious colours and super fun patterns to knit.

The green pullover is knit with Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino.

The pink yoked cardigan is knit with Sirdar Snuggly Crofter. It makes the wonderful colour changes as you "just" knit.

The cross-over cardigan is knit  with Viking Milk - yes Milk!

I am busy working on the newsletter and workshop list. Hopefully you will receive it before too long. Need to prove read it again, have Linda prove read it also, add some pictures and then it will be ready.

Happy knitting from Diane
