If you're like us, some of the best stress relievers in these trying times are fibre crafts. Looking for a project? Here are some kits we have available right now for curb-side pickup: (We will try and update this post often)

Designed by Sabine Hogg, this beautiful summer wrap can be buttoned around the shoulders, or unbuttoned and worn as a scarf. Knit with one ball of an ombre silk cotton, we have a fresh new selection of colours for 2020 (pictured below). A perfect summer deck project or Mother's Day gift.

Spring is always when we see a big jump in knitting for little ones. We are still well stocked in our baby yarns, including Sirdar's self patterning Snuggly Baby Crofter in over 20 colours. One of our favourite of their patterns is this adorable little spring dress available in sizes newborn to 7 years. An easy knit for any skill level.

We will be on site fulfilling orders and meeting people for arranged in car pick-ups for limited hours from 11 until 3 pm Tuesday to Saturday or by pre arranged appointment, so it is important to contact us first before coming to the store.
