Mixing Yarns

Calgary is in complete winter mode and that inspires even more knitting. As always, we just can't stick to the plan. I was supposed to make a few more Awesome earflaps for adults and kids, but today it just didn't feel like it. Instead I decided to mix some yarns and make another neckwarmer - warm and textured, mixing a thread of 100% linen, 100% handspun(by Mavis) multicoloured merino wool and a one-colour wool & acrylic mix.

New Knitting Pattern Released - Spiral Hat

Ever since we started making te Spiral hat/beret, people have been asking us if we have a pattern for sale. There is something about this hat - it just looks good and flattering on everyone. And the best part - it doesn't mess up your hair. You can wear it pulled back in a slouchy way or more like a beanie.

As always, the pattern is available on Etsy.com/knittles along with other patterns by knittles.

Last week we added one more market in December - Market Collective in Kensington. This would be our 3rd year participating in Christmas Market Collective. This event never disappoints and always offers a great last minute shopping which I am very guilty of.

Also if you don't have anything planned for this week end - head over to their October event for good music, handmade goods and some good time.

We are also very excited about some new colours for adult Awesome earflaps in Cilantro and Taupe and some new boyish toddler earflaps.
