This month, in honour of the 100th Remembrance Day, we’ll be following in the footsteps of the millions of women (and men, and kids) who knit for the war effort during the first second world wars. Participation is open to any war-effort knitting patterns (pdf versions here and paper copies available in-store), and complete details are available on our Ravelry group page.
We had so much fun last year, we're doing it again! Yarn Indulgences will be in the shop all day on Saturday, November 17th, with all her gorgeous hand-dyed tonal and speckled yarn.
Our featured Yarn of the Month, Ístex Léttlopi, is a hearty Icelandic wool that is celebrated for its warmth and richness of colour, much like the famous Icelandic Sweaters it is used for! If you’d like a traditional ‘lopapeyesa’ for yourself, check out Ravelry’s list of recommended Léttlopi patterns (https://bit.ly/2OCaMif). These are three of our faves – Afmaeli, Jón, and Var.
Our latest pattern is the simple & stylish Crombie Scarf. An easy-peasy ribbed scarf that required just one skein each of two worsted weight colours. Free pattern available to download from Ravelry.
The one-and-only Lettlopi is our featured Yarn of the Month for October. Spun from 100% pure Icelandic wool - unmatched for its warmth and richness of colour - this fibre is unique to the island and is at the heart of its long and unique cultural heritage.
