Welcome to our new blog. We hope to post news (such as our month long sale all of January and all of August!), pictures and patterns that come from the staff and our customers. The above shawl/scarf is a favourite of many of our customers and is Dora's signature shawl. She chooses about six different yarns, casts on about 100 + stitches on an 8mm, 80 cm circular(for storage, not in the round), and knit a different yarn each row leaving a tail to act as fringe. This is a great way to use up your stash and perhaps one 'fancy' yarn to bling it up. I have made scarves this way using anything and everything and just knit about 8-10 inches - a great evening project.
