Never Enough Wool
End of school. Beginning of "true" summer. Whichever way you would like to think of it; we have arrived!!! (Well, almost.) At the shop we are preparing to start some very exciting new projects and of course, we are working to get the old ones finished.
With all that said, we have gotten in a few pretties for everyone to see. First, we have the Ultra Wool by Berroco.
It is a 100% wool, double knitting weight yarn that is machine
washable. 10 new colours with which to play. (Ask Barb what
she has started.)
Next up, we have a baby blanket kit by Feza Yarns.
800m of a dk weight, cotton viscose will delight you as you knit up the
easy baby blanket. Or you could do a summer top.... the ideas are
Speaking of summer pretties, have you SEEN the Tutti Frutti from Regia? We have three beautiful colourways, in (what else?) fruity colours. The beauty of this yarn lies in both its fabulous colours as well as content -- 72% cotton, 18% polyamide for stretch and 10% polyester.
We have enjoyed perusing the new knitting magazines, adding to our queue. Barb has even been swatching for projects, while Carol is still dithering about what colours and yarn. Be sure to ask what has tempted us into casting on!
And speaking of casting on...have you seen the booklet A Canadian Afghan, eh? This is an afghan designed to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday. We will be leading a knit-along, beginning in July. This is a perfect summer project -- it is knit in squares which will be seamed together at the end, before the border is applied. Talk about portable!
What's in our project bags right now? In addition to swatching for new projects, Barb is working her Lilliana afghan and a lace scarf. Carol has a pair of mittens and several pairs of socks underway.
Happy knitting and crocheting!

Crochet-Along - Have you fallen in love with Carol's Lilliana? Would you like to create your very own? Join us on Fridays, beginning April 6, and work along with Barb as she leads this crochet-along.
Knit-ALong – A Canadian Afghan Eh!
-- As a fitting end to Canada's 150th birthday year, we have decided to
knit this beautiful afghan. Constructed as blocks which are later
sewn together and then encircled with a maple leaf border, this is the
perfect "cottage" blanket. It will require 4600m of worsted
weight yarn. If you need to, order soon so that it will be ready
to start on the first Tuesday of July!
June - Butterfly/Papillon Shawl - Looking for a stunning shawl to throw around your shoulders? This is the one for you! It features short rows and two colours of wool -- but only one colour at a time. Starting June 5. Cost: $25 plus materials of approximately $60.
- Catch your breath and enjoy the summer! We don't officially
teach a class in July, but our class times remain available for our
crafters to finish up projects and ask questions.
August - Stay tuned for the next invigorating idea!
