Sarah is wearing the Nepal Hat and Scarf combo, an easy to knit kit in a splashy colourful bulky yarn. This set takes only three balls and knits up in a jiffy on big needles. Finn models our little Penguin Flap Hat, knit in soft and cosy machine washable merino boucle. Isn't he a cutie!

A Bright And Shiny New Year
Welcome 2010! And a new decade brimming with possibility. I hope your holiday season with friends and family was all that you wished for. Already we are halfway through the winter months, just ten weeks to go until Spring shows its perky self. There are plenty of things to do in Muskoka this winter, we have an over abundance of snow which makes outdoor activities, snowshoeing, sledding, and cross country skiing all the more enjoyable. For those of us who prefer indoor activities, well, knitting is always number one on my list.
Now that the Christmas ornaments are carefully packed away and the wrapping paper, ribbons and bows have been tucked in a closet, its a great month to finish off the old projects of 2009, take inventory of yarns, needles and pattern books. Organize your knitting stash and simplify your life. Get inspired with the new Spring patterns that are showing up. A little bit of temptation goes along way in motivating us to finish off a project. If its still a bit early for warm weather knitting, there are many ideas for knitting away the cold.
Sarah models our Faux Isle Hat (our first Knit-A-Long project) and little Finn is showing off his colours in our Merino Baby Hat and Scarf Set. Next week we begin our Winter Classes with Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon sessions, all levels are welcome, its a great opportunity to enjoy the company of other knitters, and learn a few new techniques. On January 23rd, we host a Needle Felting Workshop for beginners, very easy to learn and fun for all ages. Our Faux Isle Hat Knit-A-Long will be held on January 30th. Come in and choose your colours, there are so many possibilities.
