Welcome to Sweaters-as-Jackets Weather!

We seem to be just arriving at that magical season here in Southern Ontario when we can all officially doff our heavy overcoats – the daily burden of our winter existence – and proudly wear just our sweaters as our outermost layer. That’s right! It’s sweaters-as-jackets weather!


In celebration, I cast-on this beauty earlier this week – “Dalur” from the Knitting With Icelandic Wool book (which we now stock!), and made possible with the huge order of lopi we received last week…


Alafoss Lopi!


and the lighter-weight Lett Lopi!


We’ve also just restocked some favourite colourways of Cascade Ecological Wool and Eco+, also terrific candidates for the jacket-sweater of your dreams! Check out Alexis Winslow’s East Hale Cardigan, Linden Down’s Sophisticate, or Jared Flood’s Smokin’


And if you’re looking for something summer-y, look no further than Cascade’s Ultra Pima DK-weight cotton. This yarn is designed for garments, not crafts, and would work up beautifully in patterns like the Rose Garden Shawl, the Gemini tee, or the Cinnie short-sleeved cardi!

Our hours for this weekend are as follows:

Friday, April 3rd (Good Friday) – Closed

Saturday, April 4th – Open 11-4

Sunday, April 5th (Easter) – Closed

Monday, April 6th – Closed (as per our usual hours)

We’ll be back to normal on Tuesday! Have a great long weekend everyone!
