Shop Update Date Change

Our fall update will take place on Monday, October 9, not October 4th as previously blogged about. Sorry for any confusion but we have so many things to add to our site, a few more days will make all the difference. Thanks all for your understanding and patience! If you have something you are eagerly waiting to grab, please send me a quick email and I can set it aside for you.

Fall News

This is my favourite time of year.  School starts up again, hockey season is here and knitting just makes sense.  I knit all year round but when it is 30 degrees and sticky, it seems like the wrong kind of activity.  But fall, crisp air and the gorgeous leaves...well it makes me want to cast on all things, all of them, right now! At the studio, I have been busy dyeing all sorts of pretty things for our fall shows and to update our website (big one coming October 4).  Here's where we will be this fall if you would...

What should you knit?  Anything...sweaters, cowls, shawls, mittens, socks...you name it.  Maybe an afghan! We will have a draw on July 1 for all our cast on items.  You need at least a few rows more than some stitches on a needle, but I'm flexible. August...

Sea Turtle Yarn in the Wild

Sea Turtle Yarn in the Wild

I love seeing STFA yarn in the wild.  It is thrilling to see a picture or a post, our yarn out there with you, having fun. At a fibre show, the excitement is even greater when I can see the project and the knitter in person!  It is my favourite thing at a show.  I could hug all you knitters who pull a sock or a sweater out of a bag, sometimes still on the needles, to show me.  It makes me so happy.  Thank you.
