Christmas is coming!!

Well not for a little
 
while yet!! 

Hello everyone!!
 
 Just kidding! But when you come across a deal like this? It is best to grab it now and tuck it away because this one 200 gram ball knits up into a cool beanie, a cowl and a pair of wrist warmers!!
 
Lang Mille Colori has brought out this yarn in several colourways, each one with a fabulous sheen that makes it just pop! More colours are on their way to the shop..see you soon!

 All of you wonderful customers that are not just around the corner , anytime you see something you would like and can't get in to purchase it, I am more than happy to mail it to you. Just give me a call or an email and we can arrange it!!
 
Happy Knitting,
Lynn

Great Job ladies



A big THANK YOU,  to you  all ~
and Easter weekend hours and events!!



Hello everyone,


  Every year, The Purple Sock puts out a call for Izzy dolls for the nurses from Georgian College to take with them on their teaching trip to the Dominican Republic. And every year, the Purple Sock Ladies deliver!!

In addition to the ever popular Izzy dolls, lovely little extras like cotton hats and little face cloths are added to the list of items the nurses take with them.

This year, we are sending 158 Izzy dolls, .....51 face cloths and....100 cotton hats!!  These will bring so much happiness to the little ones there who have nothing...

Thank you, as always, for your kindness and  your generosity.

On another note. This weekend will be Easter and Coldwater has a great event for the kids. On Saturday, April 15th,  from 11 am. to 1 pm.,  there will be Pinatas to break, and Easter bonnets to decorate,  plus popcorn and other goodies.  So bring  the kids, or  Grandkids and have a bit of fun!!

Please note The Purple Sock will be closed on Friday,  April 14th , Good Friday  and also Sunday, April 16th  Easter Sunday,  but we will be open as usual on Saturday,  April 15th.

More great needles!!



Someone has done it again!! 



 
Hello everyone!
 
I did not know it was possible to have/"need" so many different needles, lol! But different projects require different needles and these are just perfect!

 
These LYKKE fixed circular needles are terrific and so pretty, I love the Driftwood look of them! Actually made of smooth, hard birch, the "Driftwood" striations are gorgeous and just add to your knitting experience.
 
In sizes from 2 to 12 mm, and with cord lengths from 16-40 inches, these are the perfect addition to your project bags.


I also have back in stock there wonderful sets of interchangeables  that I introduced to you just before Christmas.

So as an introduction to these great needles I am offering them at 10% off from now til april 9th.  So come in and buy a pair to try today!!   This offer is just for you my faithful followers, so make sure you mention you read  about them on my newsletter!! 




 
Happy Knitting!
