This week’s special is Sirdar Denim Chunky at 40% off. This yarn knits up quickly at a gauge of 14 stitches/19 rows on 6.5m’s. These are big 100g balls with 156 metres of yarn at only $7.17 per ball.

Use Denim Chunky to knit this sweater coat for women or girls:

There are two options: long-sleeved or 3/4 length sleeved. Pick up some feature buttons for the front and you’ll have a beautiful cozy cardigan to keep you warn through the chilly winter months ahead.

Or knit this Denim Chunky pattern for boys aged 1 – 12 years of age:

It’s sometimes hard to find a nice boys sweater pattern and we’ve always liked this one. Anina finally knit it up this past summer and it’s now on display in Point Grey. We have permission to distribute this pattern without charge when you buy the yarn.

We have tons more new stuff. There are luscious skeins of Handmaiden’s Mini Maiden that’s equal parts silk and wool, with 500 metres of yarn on a 100g skein. It’s super stunning knit up, have a look:


We have Nicky Epstein’s great new book, Knitting on Top of the World: The Global Guide to Traditions, Techniques and Design:

And we’ve recently unpacked stacks of boxes loaded with Blue Sky Alpacas, Koigu, Lantern Moon, Louet and many more. Our shelves are bursting with fabulous yarns, perfect for holiday gifts or other terrific new projects

Don’t forget about our Knit Nights on Tuesday evenings in Edgemont and Wednesday evenings in Point Grey. Combine some after work shopping with a bit of knitting or crocheting, a perfect combo!
