The biggest news of the last week is that we finally received a shipment of Madelinetosh yarn!
We have Tosh Merino Light, from left to right: “Antique Lace”, “Alabaster”, “Fragrant”, “Nutmeg”, “Chamomile”, “Ink”, “Thunderstorm”, “Silver Fox”, and “Thyme”…
And Tosh DK! From left to right, top row: “Tart”, “Mare”, “Cousteau”, “Plaid Blanket”, “Candlewick”, “Ginger”, and “Earl Grey”; bottom row: “El Greco”, “Smokestack”, “Robin’s Egg”, “Grasshopper”, “Magenta”, “Flouro Rose”, and “Cosmic Wonder Dust”… These are already flying off the shelf, so pop in quick if you want to see them (and squeeze them!) in person!
Also new in the shop, the spring issue of Interweave Knits!
This issue features some great transition-season patterns, plus a great photo tutorial for knitted-on edgings (shown above).
We’re stocking a new line of locally-handmade stitch markers by Rumpel’s Notions! Featuring both hard-ring and soft-ring styles in a range of sizes and colours!
And some more handy hardware and tools restocked from Knitter’s Pride – the Symfonie Dreamz Interchangeable Wooden Needle set, small and large magnetic pattern holders, and lace blocking wire kits!
In shop news, we are super excited to be hosting some live music next Saturday, February 21st, as a part of the February Folk Folly, a downtown music crawl featuring local musicians playing intimate, acoustic sets in local businesses!
Also, please note that we will be CLOSED this Sunday, February 15th, for a little Family Day weekend – our next Circular Blanket KAL meetup was mistakenly booked for this day but has been bumped to next Sunday, February 22nd. Have a great Family Day weekend, everyone! Knit fast, stay warm!!
