Introducing Fulton

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

Michael has been at the shop for a few months now and we are proud to announce his very first pattern: Fulton!


This lovely little hat caught my eye last Friday because it has 2 things I love right now, cables and Madelinetosh DK. Michael knit this little wonder up in a great fall colourway too, Terrarium. The cable detail adds a little extra something to this toque and it has that ‘fresh off the slopes’ look about it. I’m picturing a blustery fall day with me in my North Winds Hat and my hubby in a Fulton….


The hat is of a rare breed, it works for guys and gals alike. It’s not always simple to find a toque pattern that the male of the species will happily wear but I think Michael has done it (and who would know better really?). One skein of Tosh DK is all it takes so cast on for a Fulton hat today!

The patter is available here on Ravelry.

The New Guy

Friday, July 8th, 2011


Yet another new face at Urban Yarns, welcome to the New Guy! Michael is the newbie at Urban Yarns but he is no stranger to knitting, that’s for sure. Having recently come across his blog (and I may have spent some time perusing his projects on Ravelry as well) I’m already a fan of his knitterly taste. I have been swept up by the lovely lace and cables! To see for yourself you can check out Michael Knits.



Michael has been knitting for a few years now and he’s mastered some pretty tough projects. One of my faves fits right in with our theme of the week: Jared Flood! This is Bridgewater from the Brooklyn Tweed book. 2000 yards of lace and just stunning. I think the natural colour is just right for this project because it shows off every gorgeous stitch.


Michael is hoping to bring the boys to the knitting circle and he will be hosting Men’s knit nights on Tuesdays 6:30-8:30 so boys bring your knits!

Reminder: Flood Night is tomorrow night (Anina and I laughed about the weather fitting right in….) so bring your project finished or not for some tea and cookies!
