stealing yarn
chasing and retrieving crinkle balls
chewing and sleeping in cardboard boxes
tormenting pigeons

The Buzz on Halloween

DSCN0004Happy Halloween Everyone!

Look at the adorable hat Iwona made for Charlie’s first Halloween costume. There is a wonderful striped romper that goes with it too.  That’s what you get when you have a crafty Mom!
Sorry – there is no pattern for this hat.  It was improvised!
Crochet is a great medium for improvisation, since one stitch is added at a time and you can see your project grow and develop as you build – kinda like lego!

If you are not yet a crocheter – why not join our upcoming crochet blanket class?

crochet blanket hexagonsI love this blanket pattern! It is so fun to make and there are so many ways of making it unique by choosing different colour combinations.

It is also a terrific way to learn how to crochet in circles which is the first step to improvising your own bumble bee hat!

A Red Carpet Premiere – A New Class

Our friend and Knit Cafe collaborator Andrea Dorfman has finished a new feature film. It is called Heartbeat and it will be opening at the Tiff Lightbox on November 21rst.  You should go!
I had the opportunity to see the film during the Toronto International Film Festival. It is a wonderful and charming film that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy – much like a pair of hand-made crocheted slippers like these ones do ⇓

Heartbeat Slipper

Heartbeat includes an inspired wardrobe choice in the form of some chunky, ruby-red slippers.  They make quite an impression! We’re pretty certain after watching the film you might want to make a pair of your own. So we are offering a class to teach you how!

hearbeat slipper

Even if you have never crocheted before you can take this class and learn to make these slippers.  It is an Absolute Beginner Class, and a great way to learn basic crochet skills.

Sweet on Sweet Georgia Yarn

It is so great to look out the window and see green.  Not just any green but that distinct hue of greenery that is ubiquitous in the spring; that vivid, happy, living, breathing, bright, green. Sigh!
This skein of yarn from Sweet Georgia harnesses the power of green and mixes it with this punchy pink to make the springiest yarn you ever did see.  It’s called Snapdragon.

sweet georgia

This west-coast, Canadian, hand dyer seems particularly adept at preserving the essence of Spring-Time in their sunny colour-ways. We have a pretty batch of their DK weight superwash merino, which has a springy twist that is a match for the colour. A generous 234 metre skein is $24. Some are multicolour dye jobs like Snapdragon ↑

and Sitka

and Honey Fig

Some are effervescent tonal colours that can’t wait to become jumpers.  They tell me so from the shelves.

If you’re not up for knitting a full-sized sweater, try a baby size.  After all this is superwash yarn, and spring does bring a shower of baby shower invitations in its wake. I am also moved to recommend this yarn for a baby blanket project like the one we knit up in our Beginner Knitting Baby Blanket Class (Monday June 16, 6:30-9pm), or our Beginner Crochet Blanket Class (Wednesday June 11, 18, 25, 7-9pm).
