SALE Vintage Books, Booklets & Magazines! My maternal grandmother was the big knitter in my family (preceeded only by her mother who learned to knit when she was 5 years old). When my bubby passed away in 2000 I was only just getting into knitting, and inherited her knitting patterns. My inheritance lit something inside of me, because I became a collector of patterns, books and magazines....

Square-A-Day Blanket Over the weekend I went to the Art Gallery and after trolling other people's art I was feeling very motivated to get on making some of my own. As a warm-up, I'm taking my cue from my excellent friend Rosie and I started a "Square-A-Day" blanket. As you can imagine, a "square-a-day" blanket is the kind of thing where you make a square every day for whatever time you choose (ex....

Knitting and Crochet are not only relaxing and creative hobbies but can also be a beautiful way to document and commemorate the passing of time. One popular trend among knitting & crochet enthusiasts is the creation of temperature blankets. These blankets are not only aesthetically pleasing but also serve as a unique way to track and celebrate daily weather patterns throughout the year....

Brisk Day We made the Brisk Day cowl a little while ago, but I didn't want to formally introduce you until the yarns were restocked (I felt like it would be cruel, and the stock was very low, we had been waiting a LONG time). My friend Jo brought this one to my attention and I'm really grateful she did, it's such a clever little accessory!...

Brisk Day Cowl makes a great last minute gift! Use Drops Wish or Drops Air (held double) on 7mm & 8mm needles.

Isn't it interesting that as the days get shorter we fell the need as human beings to bring divinity closer to us and into our homes. As I was reminded last night, there are a lot of cultures that celebrate holidays at this time of year ... Divali just passed us, of course there is Christmas and Hannukah, the soltice (which is what it's all about), Kwanza, and Dec 8th is Bodhi Day (the day celebrating the Bhuddha's achieving enlightenment)....

There are a lot of decoration projects & pattern ideas out there (see the links below) but I've rounded up a few for you that have caught my eye ...

I'm so sorry the link for the Family Slippers pattern wasn't connecting last time we posted that ... here it is updated! Family Slippers How can anyone go wrong with slippers?! I recommend a washable yarn, feet being what they are, and socks generally end up in the machine eventually. These slippers are a simple, fast knit. The pattern is writen for holding 2 strands of yarn together, but with the yarns we've suggested you'll only need a sigle strand....

Algoma I just finished a new store sweater for myself, Algoma by Tara-Lynn Morrison. It's a roomy retro inspired cardie made with light, fluffy, airy yarn. I used two strands of Drops MELODY held together and 10mm/US15 needles and once I figured out the tension and stuff it FLEW! Its VERY cozy, very light, very soft, and not too hot over a T-shirt (although I haven't really given it a proper winter wearing, so I can't really speak to that fully)....

Stripe Hype Sweater The Stripe Hype Sweater is a great stash busting project where you can use up scrap yarns or combine your favourite colors in just the way you want. Also, knitting stripes makes this one a really quick project to complete because the curiosity of seeing how every next stripe will affect the overall look is highly addictive, and a lot of fun.The work begins by working the back flat, then stitches are picked up for the left and right front separately and worked flat....

09/21/2023

The Easy Garter Scarfy Wrap is the brainchild of my friend Jo, and I’m very grateful that she came up with this simple solution because it’s GREAT! This wrap drapes like a big scarf, but is also equally wearable as a little wrap. The pattern is almost totally brainless; it’s a great second or third project for a beginner knitter, but it also works equally well for more experienced knitters hanging out on the patio with a beer or a cocktail.⁠

⁠SEE ALL THE DETAILS IN OUR LINKIN.BIO⁠

You can choose one of our colour combinations, put together something from your own inspiration, or combine the two and use our palette as a jumping-off point and curate your own perfect colour experience. We're happy to help you any way we can. We stock the yarn, Sandnes Garn Double Sunday, all year round. ⁠

This kit can be used for any kind of scarf or wrap project. 4 balls of Sandnes Garn Double Sunday is enough for a conventional 6" wide double-wrapped scarf (about 6 feet long (of 1.8m). For a standard triangular shawl (like Boneyard) you'll need 5 skeins or more. ⁠

Our Wrap is in the colour palette "Bright Lights" (many thanks and much gratitude goes to Adrienne for knitting the sample, also to Gru, who allowed me to take his photo.)⁠

My swatching this weekend produced something I'm quite smitten with .... super soft and with a pretty halo: (colour 40) and (colour 3521) held together on 5mm/US8 needles - after blocking it came out at a perfect aran tension at 18 sts & 24 rows. ⁠⁠It would make an amazing !
