Are you ready for Hat Attack? It’s a friendly ‘Kill or be Killed’ competition where the weapon of choice is a hat. You’ll be assigned a target and given a pattern. Your goal is to knit a hat and mail it to your target before you are killed by receiving one yourself. The last assassin standing will be awarded US$500. worth of SWTC yarn. Sign up right here before September 16 and if you do, be sure to join the Hat Attack group on Ravelry.
Hat Attack is sponsored by SWTC to launch their new yarn, Therapi. It just arrived in our stores:
It’s a gorgeous new yarn that’s 30% bowlder (jadeite ) fibre, 50% fine wool and 20% silk. A very cool mix.
We also have more of the wonderful Indigo Moon Handpainted and Semi-Solid Merino:
Very nice stuff. And there’s a bunch of DP WIP tubes from Nancy’s Knick Knacks going out on the shelves today. The WIP tube is a clever little tool that holds your DP needles together with your current project to prevent the loss of needles and stitches. A fantastic gadget for all you sock-knitters.
We recently published our Fall Lesson Schedule. There are some fabulous lessons starting soon in both Edgemont and Point Grey. Check out the entire lesson schedule right here
And our special yarn this week is Rowan Big Wool Fusion at 50% off the regular price:
Only $7.98 for a big 100g ball of pure wool. Fusion knits to the same tension as Big Wool so it can be used for any Big Wool pattern. It has a surface dye effect which results in some lovely subtle, muted colours.
Drop by, have a look at the new yarn and pick up a new project to knit over the Labour Day long weekend. We’ll be open as usual in both stores on Saturday and Sunday but closed on Monday. Hope you have a relaxing long weekend!
