25 Jun Wednesday shop update!
A quick little burst of Malabrigo arrived yesterday! Malabrigo Sock in “Ochre” (the yarn I knit my Buckwheat pullover in last year) and “Lettuce”, Malabrigo Rios worsted-weight yarn in the colourful “Arco Iris” in the foreground, and Malabrigo Silk-Paca lace-weight in “Simply Taupe” (what I’m knitting my Ishbel shawl in right now!), “Paris Night”, and “Polar Morn” in the background. We also received a colourway of Noro’s Taiyo Sock that I’ve been waiting on for what seems like ever – it’s all blue-teal-grey-sandy tones, like a walk on the beach. Now I have to decide what to knit with it!
Also, the new Knitscene Accessories 2014 special issue is in, and the Summer Issue of Interweave Crochet!
And we now have ChiaoGoo Yarn Butlers in stock! This little gizmo holds your cake or ball and rotates as you pull your working yarn from it – basically a lazy susan for knitters!
Please note, because of Canada Day, our hours are a little different next week: we will be CLOSED from Sunday, June 29th, to Wednesday, July 2nd (that’s right, I’m taking an extra day!). This means that our regular Purlez-Vous Knitting Social on Tuesday night will be canceled for July 1st. We’ll be back with our regular hours on Thursday, July 3rd. I hope you all have a safe and enjoyable long weekend, with lots of porch/patio/park/dock knitting time! 🙂
