• Lazy Summer Days

We’re loving the sunshine! The warm weather is even more welcome than usual after the long rainy winter we endured this year. It’s very hard to sit inside at the computer while that glorious sun shines. So blog posts may be sporadic as long as the sun stays around…

Anina had some lazy summer days in July at her family cottage in Quebec, knitting natch:

She knit a great little boy’s sweater with Sirdar Denim Chunky. Here’s her nephew modelling:

We’ve always liked this design; it’s not always easy to find a good boys sweater pattern. This one was recently discontinued so we’ll happily photocopy our store copy for you without charge.

Anina also knit a great hoodie for her son, Luc, with the wonderful Rowan Plaid yarn:

This is a free online pattern from Lion Brand yarn, #10520. You can see more of Anina’s completed projects on Ravelry. She’s “aahknit”.

Rowan Plaid is a great blend of wool, alpaca and acrylic with many fantastic colour combos. It’s a discontinued yarn that’s currently on sale at our stores for only $7.79. These are big 100g, 100 metre balls. Here’s a close-up:

Love it.

And better late than never, our special this week is Rowan Kidsilk Spray at 30% off. This one’s a sumptuous blend of 70% kid mohair and 30% silk. The beautiful variegated shades give an added depth to this lustrous yarn. It’s a close relative of Kidsilk Night that’s also on sale at 30% off. We’re almost sold out of KSN and can’t get more so if you want some, don’t delay.

Now back to the sun until further notice…
