Hope to See You at the Frolic!

On Saturday morning, the marketplace doors will open at the DKC's Annual Knitter's Frolic and we'll be there! Will you be coming to visit us?

Come say "hi" to us, Sarah, Clare, and Meghan, (Connie will still be soaking in a few well-deserved rays of sunshine on vacation before heading home!) at booth 46.

We'll have shelves full of exclusive yarns and kits:

Juno Fibre Arts -- you've got to touch these yarns. More beautiful than you can imagine.
Three Irish Girls -- that's right, we're the only ones in Canada that have it, and we're willing to share!
Zen Yarn Garden -- if you haven't seen the new ZYG DK yarn yet, come see this beauty for your spring and summer sweater projects, beautiful scarves, and baby knits for that special little bundle.
Sweet Georgia -- a huge selection of your favourite Sweet Georgia yarns, including the new Cashluxe Fine. Amazing!
Dyehard Fibre Arts -- you'll love these locally dyed yarns for sock or shawl projects.
Spilly Jane Kits featuring Sunday Knits Yarns -- fun and quirky patterns in the most luxurious yarns.
Sunday Knits Kits -- if you like multicolour projects, you'll love these scarves.
Dream in Color Kits and yarns -- missed a "club" kit? We just might have the one you're looking for!
Shawl Kits -- new shawl kits with great patterns featuring all your favourite yarns, including Sweet Georgia, Dyehard, Juno...
Plus... blocking wires, ball winders, Harmony Wood Interchangeables, yarn swifts, and more.

I can't wait to see you there!

Catch Up

I've had pictures taken for ages of my finished socks and my next project but as usual time has gotten away from me.....I finished my toe up 2 at a time socks and truly, I am addicted to this method. It got a bit iffy when I was on the leg and felt as if I might never finish but when 2 complete socks came off the needles and straight onto my feet - I felt amazing! Not to mention, virtually no left overs! Yay! - 2 socks to wear - not just one!

Next on the needles is the Pueblo Stole from Sunday Knits. A beautiful scarf that utilizes the color palette that Carol has put together to perfection. This colorway is called Earth and Sky and hopefully will be done for the Frolic. But have no fear - all 5 colorways will be there along with samples of all of them - well, that is if I finish Earth and Sky so that would mean 4 samples for sure! I'm almost done the first half - so it is much bigger now than when I took the picture. The kits will be here tomorrow so if you just can't wait - then you can stop in and see them.

Oh and did you see Meghan's latest - her next Necklaces for Knitter's is ready to go - it's gorgeous!
