We did it Ontario! We will be back, open for business on Friday the 11th WITH NEW HOURS! We will be respecting all protocols that we have gotten used to, of course. What is new is being able to shop Thursday evening until seven! Week days are closed a bit earlier and we will now be closed Mondays. When we are able to get back to classes that leaves more room for them! So looking forward to seeing everyone! Bea

It was suggested that I share a picture of my planning calendar. This has been my 2021. See that clear chunk in the middle where I was sort of open for 6 1/2 weeks? That open with limited people in the store and no classes or events. See all the light grey questions marks? Those were every time the Province said we might be able to reopen.
I'm not sharing this for get people to go out and pity shop, just please keep this in mind the next time you are talking to a business owner. Some have it a LOT worse than this. If miss getting right back to you, or just can't keep up to phone messages, please be patient. We are all dealing with a lot.

Whirl is a cotton blend yarn with gradient colour changes. The cotton, acrylic bland makes it washable and a good choice for a baby blanket. How about the Sweet Dreams Baby Blanket by Anna Nilsson. This is a free crochet pattern over on Ravelry, link in comments.

I stayed today to get these beautiful new shawl cuffs up on the website. Just in time for Mother's Day these would make a great gift. We all know we knit shawls like crazy and should wear them more often. If Mom is local I can deliver her new cuff wrapped in an organza bag.
