FOs (Finished Objects)
Glenda: (too hot to wear knits today)
Ginormous Llama Scarf - Warp is Patons Kroy Sock Yarn, and the Weft is Illimani Baby Llama from ages ago. It was supposed to be 60” long, but I didn’t measure as I went, so it ended up 84” long. Then I tried to felt it, but it didn’t work…
More dishcloths woven on my 24” Ashford Rigid Heddle Loom. They are made with Martha Stewart Crafts Cotton Hemp. The Booklet about how to weave plaid can be found here: https://www2.cs.arizona.edu/patterns/weaving/monographs/b...
Stash Dash Total: 3,678m
Kelsey: Wearing - Sock Tubes!
I have no FOs this week! Unless dyeing yarn or single socks count…..
Stash Dash Total: 1,259m
WIPS (Works in Progress)
One sock tube is made with a self-dyed skein Kelsey made while trying out a technique
Socks for Chris, made with DROPS Fabel yarn
Test Knit for Josée Paquin aka UandIKnit. In Crafty JAK’s Tough and Tender fingering yarn, colourway is Whisper. Loving this pattern and the yarn is so dreamy to knit with!
Santi Cowl - uses 2 skeins of Mustard Santi. Pattern by Karen of Knit1Designs
Didn’t bring it, but have also just taken off the button bands of my Dasher Christmas Cardigan. The bands had too many stitches and were all wibbly, so I will pick them up again with fewer stitches. This is a FixFrogFinish project.
The Fix, Frog, Finish KAL will continue until the end of June. If you are doing Stash Dash this year, remember that if you make an alteration to a garment - like knitting a new button band or lengthening sleeves, you can count the yardage of the entire garment towards your total
Our new KAL is a Holst-a-long! Knit or crochet anything with one of the three Holst Garn Yarns - Coast, Tides, or Supersoft. The KAL will begin on July 1st and end on September 30th - this is just in time for Knit City, so maybe you can make a Knit City Sweater
There will be a chatter thread and a prize thread. Enter your finished items as posts in the prize thread
UFOs count if they are less than 50% finished as of the 1st of July. You can enter as many finished items as you like

Temporary Closure of In-Store Shopping
Due to the rising numbers of COVID-19 cases in BC, we have temporarily closed our bricks and mortar shop. We feel that there is an increased risk right now in the busy store environment, even with all of our precautionary measures in place. Our biggest concern continues to be, the health and wellness of our staff and customers.
Online shopping is still available, however, there will be some delays in processing and shipping of orders. Local Pick-Up will also be delayed. We will contact you to arrange a pick up time.
