Fall/Winter Knitting

We are definitely hard into the Fall/Winter knitting season. Leaves are almost off the trees and a chill is definitely in the air. Just like this lovely sheep above here we are ready to put our woolies on.

Our Get Ready for Christmas feature is well underway. We made a slight calculation error and you are actually getting about $95.00 of goods for $72.00 when you purchase all 4 kits. Excellent Value!

(Kits can be purchased singly but do not get the reduced price)

Each year we set up 4 kits for Christmas knitting. This year we are featuring a ladies hat (Confection Sparkle)-chunky, a cowl (Slip Stitch Cowl)-super bulky, lounging socks (Movie Night Slipper Socks)-super bulky & a man’s hat (Hill 60)-worsted.There are multiple colours to choose from in each project (these are just our samples). All of the projects are in worsted weight or higher which make for quick knits in the pre-Christmas rush

Each kit comes complete with all materials to knit the project and the patterns. You must take all 4 to get the great discount price.

$72.00 (Reg $82.00)


A new knit-a-long by Casapinka. After her camping trip she has created The Glamping Blanket. It offers multiple kinds of stitches/patterns and a four colour combination. All with a pattern that is easy enough for most knitters. I am currently knitting the sample (cat sized) version!

Pattern has been published at the end of October & KAL begins on November 6th.
