Hooded Sweater - Cotton Tweed

Cotton Tweed by Cabin Fever
 has been one of our "go to" yarns for a number of years.
This yarn comes in a wide range of colours and is super for family knitting projects.
It is a cotton / acrylic blend that looks like a cotton and feels like cotton and is very durable. 
Our customers knit with it year round.
One of our customers, Heather, recently finished this sweater for her grandson - lucky him!.
Funny thing - she came in to get buttons for the sweater. 
I asked her if I could take a picture of her sweater for the blog. 
She was very pleased to let me do so - as a result - if you look closely the buttons are not sewn on.
The pattern she used is called Knitted Hoodies where you will find lots of hooded sweaters.

This weekend Linda and I are going to visit to large warehouses full of yarn - lucky us!
It is very overwhelming to see so much yarn but fun at the same time.
This is our chance to get a preview of the new fall and winter yarns.

Busy at the shop with customers - which is great 
and also busy getting ready for the 
Knitter's Frolic next weekend.
 closing at 3 on Friday April 26th 
 closed all day Saturday April 27th 
- so be sure to visit us at the shop before then.
