HAPPY HOLIDAYS

Its beginning to look a lot like K N I T M A S!  At least in our tiny corner of the world where the piles of snow are fluffy and white outside and the skeins of yarn are multi-coloured and just as fluffy inside.

NOVEMBER HAPPENINGS

Is it that time of year already?  Have we been lulled into a false sense of security with the gobs of gorgeous sunshine and summer-like temperatures?  The days are certainly growing shorter and the holiday countdown will begin very shortly.  Have you planned your gift knitting list yet? 


We have lots of great inspiration to keep everyone cosy from the tips of the toes to the top of the head starting with our latest....


THE SILVER BRIDGE COLLECTION




The first design in this series is a slightly slouchy ribbed hat that fits like a glove and knits up very quickly in the round.  YAY!  No seams.  Kits available in store or by mail order.  Child and Adult sizes included.  Stay tuned for more accessories from this collection.

LADY MUSKOKA KNITTING CRUISE RECAP



AHOY KNITTING MATES!


"Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,
A tale of a fun-filled knitting trip
That started from this Bracebridge port...
Aboard this tiny ship.

The knitters were mighty sailors,
The skipper brave and sure.
A crew of happy passengers set sail that day
For a three hour tour, …. a three hour tour."


Hope you can join us next year!

SUMMER ROAD TRIP MKAL UPDATE

It has been a fabulous summer ... hasn't it? All that rain we received in July has been good for watering the flowers, preventing forest fires, overnight car washes and of course the main event.... knitting!


We are z-o-o-ming through our Summer Road Trip MKAL with a few pit stops along the way to soak up the sun and enjoy the changing landscape as we celebrate the beauty of CANADA from coast to coast. With just a week or so left until we take off our driving gloves and set the needles down, here are some of the colourful postcards sent from 'the road'


Wish you were here...
