Twiggy Hat in Cashmere and Merino Yarn

  • by

Last year, when Janet and I were talking about attending the Woodstock Fleece Festival in October, we decided to make ourselves hats for the event. We had heard that it could get quite cold in the barns and that was where my booth was. Janet made the Seashell Beret and I made the Twiggy Hat by YYC Knits which is a free pattern over on Ravelry. Both hats used one skein of yarn. I used my cashmere and merino yarn and it was a delight to knit with.… Read More »Twiggy Hat in Cashmere and Merino Yarn

Easy Goes It Shawl

Easy Goes It Shawl

  • by

I’ve recently completed my Easy Goes It Shawl by Finicky Creations. The pattern is a free download on Ravelry. It was a fun and easy to knit. The shawl grew quickly and there was enough variation in the pattern sections to keep it from getting boring. I knit the majority of this shawl while in the car, in the good old days when we could still go places!  I chose to knit this shawl in my SW Merino, Cashere and Nylon yarn.… Read More »Easy Goes It Shawl

Little Green Hat

Little Green Hat

  • by

I first met Melly at the Port Elgin Farmer’s Market back in 2018. That’s when she purchased a mini skein from me and made a little green hat. It was the first year I decided to sell my yarn to the public. Every Wednesday morning my husband and I would pack up the car and drive over to Port Elgin and set up my booth. He would head home for the morning and work. Around 1 he would return with… Read More »Little Green Hat

Mary Ann’s Socks

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. My donegal yarn features black and grey flecks on a merino base. Each skein is a generous 438 yds/100g made of 85% Superwash Merino… Read More »Mary Ann’s Socks

Shelagh’s Spring Rain Shawl Update

  • by

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

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
