Cooler weather - warmer yarns

The mailman keeps bring us boxes and boxes of n"ewe" yarns.
It is so much fun to open the boxes and see what treasures are inside.

Supersoft Luxury Dk
Isn't this a great vest!
It is made from Sirdar Supersoft Luxury Dk.
The yarn is so very soft and lightweight and comes in 10 stunning colours.
You can see the colours in the basket - some are pastel  and others are rich in colour.
The pattern book includes 15 patterns -
sweaters, pullovers, hats, fingerless gloves, scarves, shoulder capes and more.

Happy Knitting

Have yarn will travel!

I was lucky enough to go away for nearly a week with my daughter Elizabeth.
Can you guess where we went?
And yes - we both had knitting projects with us!

Sitting on a big red rock!

Leaning against a friendly cow!
At a look out!

Patting the only sheep we saw!

If you guessed Prince Edward Island you are correct. Good for you.
Lots of green grass, shining waters, friendly people and just the right
 amount of mother/daughter time and knitting time
 Elizabeth is knitting her best friend a lovely long chunky cardigan using Twilleys Purity
 I am knitting a chunky pullover using one of our  n"ewe" yarns - Twilleys Chunky Freedom Spirit.

While I was away a number of n"ewe" yarns came in.
 I will try to remember to take pictures of them and post them soon.
 Better yet - come in and see them for yourself

More N"ewe" Yarns

The n'ewe' yarns just keep coming and coming.
 It is exciting to open the boxes to see what is inside.
 Below is one of the n"ewe" yarns that arrived recently.


Monsoon is a knitting worsted weight wool blend yarn. I know that many of you love the Marble yarns and this yarn comes from the same mill - James Brett. As you can see the colours are "brilliant". They have a long colour repeat that looks stunning knitted up in to hats, scarves, sweaters or whatever.

This is our n"ewe" wall in the knitting worsted weight room.
It is not actually a n"ewe" wall - but it has never had yarn hanging on it before - so it is a n"ewe" wall of yarn and some of the yarn on it is n"ewe"!
Hope you understood all that!!


The yarn on the left as you look at the picture is called Stellabella. It is from the Diamond Luxury Collection and comes in 5 lovely colours. It is kind of luxurious as it has a bit of "glitz" in it. I am knitting an easy lacy cowl in the pink colour (of course) and hope to have it finished soon.

Kid-Seta Melange

Linda finished knitting this stunning scarf using 2 balls of Kid-Seta. Even though the yarn is fine the scarf worked up quite quickly using 3 mm and 5 mm needles. This scarf is so...... light you will feel like you are not even wearing it but it will be lovely and warm as it is a mohair/silk blend.

Remember - We will be closed Sat. August 13th for family time!

Woolie Bullie and Kid -Seta

I love the name Woolie Bullie
I love the yarn label on Woolie Bullie
I love the love the feel of Woolie Bullie
I love the look of Woolie Bullie

Now take a look for yourself at this fun yarn.

Did you see the sheep on the label!
Don't you love it!
This yarn is very unique in texture and appearance.
Think of a coat, mitts or a hat with shearling trim and that is how this yarn knits up.
The Woolie Bullie pattern book includes hats, mitts and a headband using this fun yarn.
The finished products will be so cozy and warm.

Another n"ewe" yarn!

Kid- eta
Kid-Seta yarn is so very different from the Woolie Bullie.
It is fine a wool/silk blend and is extremely light.
There are actually 3 different  kinds of Kid-Seta
Kid-Seta, Kid-Seta Melange and Kid-Seta Print.
You will love creating with any of them - the hardest thing will be deciding which one and which colour you would love to use.
Kid-Seta worked along with Cashmere Queen makes a wonderful looking project.

 Saturday August 13th for Family time!
