  • Neon Scarf, made with RainCity Knits sock yarn in Kaleidoscope and Aqua

  • 2 plaid scarves, made with leftovers of worsted and DK wool yarns. All the details are in my Ravelry pages. One is random, one is based on “Plaid Muffler” pattern from Woven Scarves by Jane Patrick & Stephanie Flynn Sokolov.

  • Polar Night Socks - made on CSM, then handknit the toes, heels, and ribbed cuffs. Regia Polar Nightsock yarn

It’s our 6th Anniversary this weekend! We will have a little party this weekend, with treats and of course, a big yarn sale. Sale prices will be in store and online, and there are some great deals available. We need to make room for new Fall yarns, so don’t miss out!

We will release our limited edition anniversary sock yarn on Saturday. Only 30 skeins, limit 2 per customer. Won’t go online for about a week (if there is any left)

We have a new yarn from Puzzle Tree Yarns, a new dyer from Vancouver. She makes 25g skeins, which are intended for heels and toes on socks, but of course you can use these for anything you like.

We also have Hamilton Sock Blanks! These are hand painted by Jessie of Yarn Over New York
