Pins and Yarn

There is always n"ewe" in the shop and I love sharing it with you.

Actually brooches is a better word to describe these fun "pins" for knitters and crocheters.
They are made by Sarah Reesor - a local artist who lives in southern Ontario.
You will find sheep - of course - cats and dogs.
Aall are painted in a fun way and decorated with a felted ball, beads and wire.


Aventica is a "light" chunky yarn with a chain construction that results in it being light weight and cozy.
 It comes in 10 delight colours that form wonderful colour patterns as you knit.

There are 2 pattern books - Inspiration - Colour Effects for Kids - sweaters (ages 1 to 8 years) plus the cutest toys knit from the same yarn to match the sweaters.

The other book - Inspiration - Beautiful Colour Effects for Adults - includes patterns for sweaters, shawls, vests, hats. scarves and leg warmers.

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend
 be sure to find time to pick up your needles and hooks.

Be Thankful that you know how to knit and crochet.
