• Random Summer Roundup

It’s been nice and hot in Vancouver – and I’ve been far too busy with a lot of things. That means it’s time for a random roundup of summer products and projects! Some of these are new, and some are time-tested summer home runs.

Madelinetosh Twist Light
Well, the latest and greatest from the Southern Juggernaut has hit the shelves. We’ve got the new Madelinetosh Twist Light in a slew of rich and/or vibrant colours. I don’t need to talk this up to you, it really just sells itself. Make sure you come check it out before it’s gone!

Content: 75% superwash merino wool, 25% nylon
Weight: 50 grams
Length: 384 meters/420 yards
Gauge: 26 – 30 stitches/4 inches
Suggested Needle Size: 2.25 – 2.75 mm/US 1 – 2


Ok, so I’m not really a glitter person, but the new Glitterati Sock from sweetgeorgia is fantastic. Even better? The adorable, summery, cheery Sail Shawl Kit they’ve put together! We’ve got some in-store (sorry, not online, but you can always call or e-mail us to sort something special out!) I love the colour combos, and I want to make them all.



Spud & Chloe Fine
I know I talked about the new Spud & Chloe Stripey Fine a few months back. But guess what? I still *love* Spud & Chloe Fine. In fact, it is one of my go-to summer yarns. I’ve just started a wicked fun and easy shawl that is the perfect summer project. Seriously, it’s just garter stitch, yos, and k2togs – doesn’t get any better than that for beach and beer knitting!
Colours of Choice: Popcorn, Sidewalk, and Anemone
Spud & Chloe Fine

Pattern of Choice: Quicksilver by Melanie Berg

That’s it for this week! Go forth and knit – but make sure you keep cool, too! If one of these summer goodies doesn’t speak to you, we are always happy to help you find the perfect project!
