    What's On...


    Cannon Street Sweater KAL... A great first sweater!

      We have been hearing alot of requests for a My First Sweater class and decided that a guided Knit-A-Long was maybe the best way to go. Over the next couple of months we plan to host your questions In-Store and Online. In celebration of Canada Day we decided it needed to pair a Canadian Designer and a Canadian Yarn. We have chosen :

      ShelridgeFarmsCannon Street by GlennaC, which is written as either a Cardigan or a Pullover, and our Feature Yarn will be Shelridge Yarns W4 Worsted. We have used the Shelridge Worsted before and we found that is is just a fabulous sweater yarn, with a great balance of twist and flexibility with a lovely collection of wearable colours. The colours are very gently tonal to solid and the lovely Lyn of Shelridge Farms graciously and enthusiastically agreed to get dying for anyone who wanted to special order the gorgeous W4 Worsted for this project!





We are very happy to be an official drop off location for Knitted Knockers of Canada! You can read all about this program at the Knitted Knockers Canada Website and/ or pop on by the to get the information and pick up the pattern and a skein or two the recommended yarn...Cascade Ultra Pima...a soft mercerized Cotton that is soft and washable and well wearing!

Bring them in unstuffed and we will ship them off in batches as our basket fills!
