I have to say that our customers have done it again!!

Over the span of this year, our awesome customers have picked up yarn, made squares and brought them in to the store. Another few customers have come along, picked up those squares, taken them home and sewn or crocheted them together.  They bring completed blankets back to the store. Then, we donate the completed blankets to three organizations within Halton Region - Links To Care, The Salvation Army and Halton Women's Place.

I tallied up the number for this year and counted 129 blankets which will be donated back into our community within the next few weeks. Thanks to everyone for their contributions this year!  I know they will be warmly accepted by those who need them.

Hi everyone,

It's me, Linda, again.  I am going to attempt to keep the blog going while Diane is away.  I hope you will bear with me as I am not tech saavy and this is all very new to me.

I just wanted you all to know about the new yarns that have arrived at the store.  We got another shipment of Hedgehog Fibres in some very pretty sock colourways.

The Madeline Tosh has finally all arrived and is gloriously squishy!  There is the Tosh Merino Light (a heavy lace/fingering weight) in 16 colours which makes beautiful shawls and scarves.  We also have the Tosh DK in 17 colours and the Tosh Vintage (worsted) in 12 colours.

Also new to the store is the Manos Del Uruguay Alegria.  It is a sock/fingering weight yarn that is 75% superwash merino-25% polyamide and has the most gorgeous colours!  I'm having a hard time trying to decide whether to make socks or a scarf from it first.  We now have 10 colours of it in stock.

I'd love to show you all the pretty colours as I have been taking pictures of everything as it arrives but I haven't yet figured out how to upload/download (?) the pictures to the computer and then transfer them to the blog.  I did say that I am not tech saavy.  You will just have to come in to see all the pretty new yarns for yourself.  Hope to see you all soon.
