Fall Projects and Magico Shawl

 Welcome Fall
The shop is inviting on the outside.
And also on the inside.

The first display you see to your left as you enter are lots of cowls and infinity scarves.
These quick and easy projects are great for the whole family.
You can use any weight of yarn and we have lots and lots of patterns for you to chose from.
Yarns featured in these are
Pasea, Babymeboo, Kid-Paillette, Liberty Print KW, Passion, West Luxe, Four Seasons Sock and Quasar.

Straight ahead of you as you walk in are 2 cute hats and 2 cute toddler sweaters.
The green slouch hat uses Titus yarn or any fingering.
The beige ear flap hat uses WYS Aran wool.
The red and blue sweater called Gramps by TinCanKnits was knit using 
Cascade 220 superwash KW.
The multicoloured sweater was knit with Liberty Wool Print KW.

Isn't this a lovely shawl/wrap!
Linda B. - one of our regular customers brought it in to show me and I am so glad she did.
She used less than one ball of Magico fingering..
Linda did the lovely knitting and the yarn made the stunning design.
The pattern she used is called Lazy Katy and is a Ravelry pattern.
We also have a super selection of fingering weight patterns to make shawls / wraps.

Happy Knitting and crocheting during this Fall season.

Merino Baby
Isn't this the cutest baby sweater ever!
I asked Ann H. to knit this sample sweater for the shop and she was happy to do it.
She used
Peter Pan Merino Baby.
It is so soft and cuddly.
As you can see from the picture you can knit the cardigan with a collar and long sleeves or collar less and short sleeves.
The pattern is from -
King Cole Book 4.
This yarn is great to knit with but we have a whole front room of other DK yarns that you can use.
Thanks again Ann.

Lots of new books "just" arrived!

Sunstruck + Gioiello

Where was the sun this past long weekend. 
Seeing you were likely inside most of the time - hopefully you got some knitting and crocheting done.
 I have started a new project with the BlueFaced Aran wool we got in a few weeks ago 
- picture to come when it is finished.
In the meantime I finished my Sunstruck shawl - purchased pattern on Ravelry.
I used 3 skeins of the lovely Hedgehog Fibres Sock (fingering) in the tantalizing colours 
- Wish, Merlot and Poseidon.
The pattern has lots and lots of short rows and it was fun to do.


You can see from the above picture that the shawl is a lopsided triangle. 
It has 12 sections and I chose to do the centre 2 at the point the same colour.
I used all 3 colours in the border.
We are expecting more Hedgehog Fibres next week with lots of new colours.

N"ewe Yarn

Very soft, 4 stunning colours and a bit of "bling" - what more could you ask for!
This fingering weight yarn will make great shawls, wraps, fingerless gloves, hats 
or what ever you would love to create.
