Were a having a late snow storm today (13th), it has been snowing all day and is to continue overnight and into tomorrow. Good thing I didn't put the shovels away. Also 60 km an hour winds to stir it all up and create visibility problems on the roads

Cardigan kit with patterned yoke knit in a wool and acrylic blended worsted weight yarn . Great sweater for those cool Spring or early summer evening or handy to leave at work for those cooler then comfortable work spaces.
The body is knit in one piece on circular needles, sleeves are knit in the round and the yoke picks up the stitches from the body and the sleeves and is knit in one piece, little to no sewing involved

I am getting ready for the show in Toronto on the 29th of April, the Knitter's Frolic at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre. I have added 3 new summer sweater kits  to our summer line of sweaters, tops, cowls, shawls and a poncho. I will get them on line as soon as I can in case you can't get to the show. I have to get them photographed and patterns finalizes and printed before I put them on line, but I should be able to do that soon.

I am attempting to downsize so I went through every bin , drawer and shelf where I store yarn and found a lot and I do mean a lot of yarn that I have only a few balls or skeins of and have pulled them out and priced them at $2.50 each which in most cases is below cost but I just want them gone. (most were SRP from 3.95 to 9.95) I will be bringing 3 very large bags of these odd balls/skeins to the show. Sorry these are not yarns that are on line.

I just got a needle order in from Knit Picks so we have the needle sets again. These prices are Canadian so if you are comparing them with Knit Picks on line our prices will be higher because of the difference in US/Canadian dollars. We have nickel plated and Harmony Wood (now called Rainbow Wood) sets available.
