It is with a sad heart that I write this post to tell you that the Toronto Knitters Frolic has been cancelled this year. The frolic organizers did not make this decision lightly. They used the information they had available to them to make the best decision possible in light of COVID-19. The organizers informed me of their decision on Sunday, March 15. Today, March 17, Doug Ford has declared a state of emergency in the province of Ontario. This… Read More »Toronto Knitters Frolic Cancelled

I love when my customers share their finished projects with me. About a month ago, Mary Ann reached out to me via Facebook and shared a picture of the socks she had made with the yarn she purchased this past summer. Aren’t they wonderful? She made them using my donegal sock yarn in the colorway Berrylicious. This yarn features black and grey flecks on a merino base. Each skein is a generous 438 yds/100g made of 85% Superwash Merino and… Read More »Mary Ann’s Socks

A couple of weeks ago I shared with you that Shelagh and her sister Margaret visited my booth at KYAFF. While we were chatting Shelagh picked up a skein of my wonderfully soft baby alpaca, cashmere, and silk yarn. It was love at first touch. She wasn’t able to put it down and ended up purchasing it. I have been following their YouTube channel to see how Shelagh is enjoying knitting with the yarn. She chose to make the Spring… Read More »Shelagh’s Spring Rain Shawl Update
That’s right! I’ve just received a shipment of Kitchener Stitch Guides. If you have ever had to graft an invisible seam, chances are you’ve used the kitchener stitch. It’s the preferred method when you don’t want to see or feel a seam in your knitting. It’s used at the toes of socks, under the arms of sweaters or a scarf knit in two sections. Basically anywhere you need to graft live stitches together to create a seamless join. Who doesn’t need… Read More »Kitchener Stitch Guides Have Arrived
Last week I shared with you that Margaret and Shelagh from Three Sisters Knit stopped by our table at KYAFF (Kawartha Yarn and Fibre Festival). We had a lovely chat and while we were chatting, Shelagh fell in love with one of our skeins of baby alpaca, cashmere and silk yarn. I wasn’t surprised as this yarn is super soft and wonderful in every way. Yes, I am a little biased 😉 but I’m not the only one who loves this… Read More »Three Sisters Knit and South Beach Yarn Co
