What's New and Knittable

New Beginning Knitter Class Starts Sept 17! 

That's right  - If you missed your chance at our first Knitting 101 class this year - you are still in luck.  A new class is scheduled to start September 17 - don't miss it this time!  Call us now 403-288-1959 to register !

Jump down, turn around - pick a bail of cotton! We still have bails of cottons - great varieties at a great price! Look what you can do! Pictured below: (free pattern download)
"Cascade Pima Cotton"

Just in - a brand new batch of "Marble Chunky" - perfect for those cozy autumn afghans and more, such as the cute swing jacket below! Available in 200 gram balls, and it knits up f-a-s-t!

Also - fresh supply of James Brett "Lakelandhas arrived - this light chunky is beautiful and fun to work with as well!

Alas - all gone! The 'Pairfect' sock yarn - this very popular trending yarn disappeared in the blink of an eye, and unfortunately -  it was a short run. Hopefully, Schachenmayr will notice the many requests for more and produce it again as a permanent sock yarn. 
In the meantime, we continue to have ample sock yarns come in, and there's still a great variety to choose from!

Back to School!

Not long now until 'the most wonderful day of the year' - back to school day! 
In keeping with that theme, we're pleased to announce two September classes have been scheduled:

Beginner Knitting - Starts Tuesday, September 8! 

Barb's back for four fun-filled Tuesday evenings to launch you into your new rewarding pastime. All materials are included and not only will you have learned the basics of knitting, you'll come away with at least three useful completed projects and five new friends! Call the shop to register.

Beginner Crochet - Starts Thursday, September 17!  

Crocheting can be fun, quick, and easy to do! Let 'Dina show you how to master the basics as you learn how to make beautiful things, burning through that stash of yarn at lightning speed! Again, all materials are included, and you can register by phone or during your next visit.

To assure your place in one of our fun classes, don't delay! Call us 403-288-1959 or drop into the shop TODAY! 

Speaking of class, you'll want to get your fingers into our  'CLASS' ic  SHADES - a new arrival, 
in four glorious colours:
Pictured here from left to right, 
"Pompidou", "Rainforest", "Jubilant" and "Midnight Ride".

Great for mitred squares or colourful striping, these luxurious worsted weight colours can also be substituted in to create a stunning backpack like the one below:

All this is not to say we've run out of summer weights and cottons. We still have lots to choose from, (see last blog post) and have just received another shipment of Modern Cotton, too. 

Look forward to seeing you soon!

Are You "Cottoning On?"

You may have heard this idiomatic phrase used to describe how we relate to others or catch onto things. A very interesting and more complete description by Michael Quinion of how this term evolved to modern usage can be found here:
