Canada Day is coming up soon, so lets do the the town up right....and bring out our red & white!!
For the past several years, The Purple Sock fairies have knit and crocheted some terrific pieces of yarn art to decorate and beautify the tress on our main street....so, as Canada Day 150 approaches, I am hoping you fairies will come out again to help us do up the town!!
Any length is fine, as we can sew several together but about 17" around will fit most of the trees in town...this is a great way to use up your bits and pieces of red and white! I also have some here in the shop if you need more...
Please drop off any contributions for this at the store before July 1st as we will be sewing them together and putting them on the trees for Canada Day.
One of the most respected names in yarns is Cascade, and this Ultra Pima cotton, made in Peru, makes it easy to see why. This yarn is offered in lots of other colours and if there is enough interest I am happy to get in some more.
With delicate, ethereal colours and a soft and supple hand, this is the perfect yarn for light summery tops, shawls and scarves. There are many suggestions of patterns on Ravelry that will work for this yarn. This is also the yarn that most people who knit "knitted knockers" use. At a Double Knitting gauge of 22 to 24 stitches in 4inches on a 3.75 mm to 4mm. it is a very versatile yarn.
And although it may not seem like it, summer is coming...I promise!!
