Here is a glance at what we have been up to this year. Some of the fun we have had includes dying yarn, vending at shows, visiting with old friends, making new friends, and visiting a farm or two. We have yarn toured, yarn crawled and yarn hopped. The remainder of the year includes a few trunks shows and a some exciting things in the making, I will keep you posted. See our “Up and Coming” page for the latest info. I hope you enjoy the photos below — E.
Happy New Year! We are looking forward 2019. Currently we are working away at refreshing our website so keep checking for updates. Our 2019 events are on our up and coming page along with any other events we would like to share. As always if you see us at any of them we would love it if you say Hi! There are some new colourways in the works that will be introduced this year. One of our goals is to concentrate a little more on our Ravelry group and our podcast …. see you on YouTube : )
Thanks to everyone for a great year so far, our online shop will be taking a little break. We will be at Lansing Gifts and Gallery on Nov 24/18. As always our yarn can be found at Knit Stitch Sew, Purl’n J, Kraft Village, Purple Sock and Yarn It. Our online store will be restocked as soon as we get more yarn “all dyed up”.

Thank you to the ladies that entered our MAL. I randomly picked a winner today and it is Mary Lou. She has been private messaged. (well I tried anyway, facebook really isn’t my thing!).
Are you all busy getting ready for the next few days! I am, I have lists, lots of lists. Happily some of the things on them are getting crossed off, last minute items are getting picked up or delivered, menus are planned, errands are being ran, arrival times are set, most of the knitting is done and the ends are sewn it … it will be fine! I have a song that I hear in my head when I feel I am running out of time during the holidays, it is Carol Of The Bells. When I reach a certain point of “stressed out” I start to hum, “da da da dum, da da da dum, merry, merry, merry Christmas”, and it speeds up with every increased level of panic. My children have caught on to this and either offer to help or make themselves scarce, depending on what they think is best in the situation. What can I say, I guess it has become one of my “traditions”. There hasn’t been any humming so far this year, but I had better get back to those lists.
We would like to thank you for all of our support and joining us on this adventure this past year. From our homes to yours, we wish you a great holiday season and a wonderful 2018!

Introducing the Textured Cowl (Worsted Weight)
This warm, delightful pattern is Dianne’s creation, it is her first pattern and if I say so myself it is awesome! I jumped at the chance to test knit it for her and it was a pleasure. I found the pattern easy to follow, it used basic stitches and they change often enough to keep it interesting.
This worsted weight cowl looks great knit in one colour or a multiple of colours.
The pattern is available in our store on this site, at Knit Traders, Kingston ON, Ravelry and Craftsy.
For a limited time we are offering a free copy of this pattern with the purchase of two of our worsted weight skeins. This offer is available on this site by dropping us an email after purchasing your yarn, purchasing your 2 skeins of worsted weight yarn at the Yarker Market on Oct 7/17 and at Knit Traders. It would make a great Christmas gift!
