 Julia and Kathleen are modelling two of Julia’s latest FO’s.  The pale blue hat is ‘You Don’t Know Our Women’, in Araucania Azapa and the darker one is  ‘Amanda Hat’ in Cascade 220 Paints. 


Julia’s a talented and prolific knitter whose creations are always extremely inspiring.  You should check out her Ravelry project gallery and her blog, Crispy Noodle Knits to see what she’s been knitting lately. 

We received a bunch more boxes this week.  There’s some luscious Blue Sky Alpacas yarn going out on the shelves today.  There are several new colours in the mix and the BSA bins are once again bursting full of uber-soft alpaca yarns.  We have loads of the popular and ultra-quick-knit Bulky.  Becky used it to knit this cozy neck scarf:


Grab a skein and a set of 20mm needles and you’ll have a new FO in no time.  The pattern’s free when you buy the yarn.

We’re also making room for a bunch of new Dream in Colour Classy.  Gorgeous stuff.  Currently only in Point Grey but will arrive in Edgemont next week…

Use Classy to knit the popular Tulip Baby Cardi that’s worked in one piece.  It’s knit from the neck down with no seaming:


We have the pattern for both babies and grownups. 

Or knit the Spice Headband with just one skein.  Classy’s also a great yarn for the February Lady Sweater.  So many options, so little time….

We also have the new Knit Kits, a wonderful new all-in-one gadget including a tape measure, stitch counter, thread cutter, scissors, crochet hook, stitch holders and tip protectors, all in one compact device.  Great to have all your most frequently used tools in one place!

There are a couple of new books on our shelves.  Things I Learned from Knitting…whether I wanted to or not:


Another hilarious book by the Yarn Harlot.

And Knitted Lace of Estonia, by Nancy Bush:


Chock-a-block full of fantastic lace patterns.  If you’re a lace knitter you’re going to want this book.

Have a great holiday weekend – hope the Easter Bunny is good to you!
