Silk Garden Lite and Happy Easter

As promised, here are some pictures of my
Silk Garden Lite Shawl.

Before Blocking

During blocking using blocking wires on a blocking board
The beautiful results!

I know that many of you are not familiar with blocking but it so important to do
- especially with lace knitting - anything with holes.

Here is another cute project that we just finished

Jeanie Aran
Jeanie Aran by Peter Pan (knits up like a KW) is really nice to knit with. It comes in shaded colours and solid colours. There are cute patterns for kids using this yarn.
Sure makes you think of Spring, Easter and Summer. It is a quick knit!

We would like to wish a Happy Easter to you and your families!
Take time to enjoy the weekend and hopefully find time to knit!

The Dye Guy have arrived!

You first heard about these new yarns in our April newsletter - now you can see what they look like. They are dyed here in Ontario - 
which is a bonus as far as we are concerned and I know a lot of you will feel the same way.

Socky Talky

Socky Talky is a wonderful superwash merino nylon blend with fun names such as Blueberry Crumble, Bubblegum Blues, Roasted Red Peppers, Golf Course, Bachelor Button, Coal and Ash.
Can you match the names to the picture?
A new colourway is arriving soon called Loaded Hot Dog - can you guess what colour it is?
Linda is knitting a pair of socks with Socky Talky and loving the way it feels and how the stitch definition is showing.


Bamboogie is a wonderful bamboo/merino blend that has a "pearl like" finish to it.
 I guess that is why they are have the word "pearl" in their name.
Amethyst Pearl, Atlantic Pearl, Ginger Pearl, Lilac Pearl, Seaweed Pearl, Sky Pearl
and Salmon Pearl.
This yarn would make a beautiful Spring/Summer scarf or shawl.
I am knitting a lacy scarf with the Bamboogie and loving the yarn also.
Silk Garden Lite

Every one loves NORO and Silk Garden Lite has just arrived.

I couldn't wait to work with the Silk Garden Lite which is a wool/silk blend. in a DK weight.
 I started a shawl right away and it is so much  fun to knit and see the colour changes.
It is a very easy pattern and the end result will be stunning I am sure.
 I will post a picture of it when it is finished.

Remember to knit every day - it is good for you.
