this and that

This is timely↓

A delivery of Eucalan wool wash!  It cleans your hand knits with less toil with it’s no-rinse formula.  Good timing – as one day soon we will be packing away our woolies for the summer season.  Keeping wool clean keeps it safe from moth threats.  An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure they say.   Eucalan comes in 500ml bottles or trial sized 100ml for $11 and $4 respectively and worth every penny! If you are involved in moth guarding or moth warfare have a look at this post for some ideas on how to fight the good fight.

How about that ↑ ? More linen from Louet has arrived!  Restock of popular colours like pewter and natural, aqua and eggplant.

This is fun↓

I added this link to a very nice tutorial on how to cable without a cable needle to my Pinterest Account.  It really caught on!  It seems a great deal of other knitters are interested in getting rid of their extra needle when they do their cabling projects.  I intend to give it a go.  Novice cablers – check out this

Iwona just finished this cabled cowl – the sample for our upcoming learn to cable class.  This lovely simple cable project is extra great as it is reversible (the same on both sides).  Without the buttons it makes a perfectly wonderful scarf too!

Brooklyn in Toronto

Yesterday was the day that we received our first ever delivery of patterns from Brooklyn Tweed.  The intrepid Jared Flood who has risen to star status in hand knitting circles helms the Brooklyn Tweed enterprise with steady and very busy hands.  His designs revisit good old fashion basics to reveal new classics.


To date we have received the pretty Autumn Stole, and Pavement – a scarf with reversible cables, a cap called Fortnight and the much admired Rock Island Shawl, as well as Brownstone – a pullover with panache! More patterns are on their way. Arrival may be expected even before weeks end.

Only days ago Mr. Flood released even more patterns.  His Fall 2011 look book can be looked upon here.  This is hot on the heals of his last collection called the Wool People.  What a prolific gentleman! Levenwick and Holl from the Wool People collection are already on their way to the Knit Cafe and I will work on securing patterns from his lovely Autumn line up as soon as possible. Please let me know which patterns you favor and I will add them to my wish list.

All the new patterns and the new yarns that have arrived over the last few weeks make a mathematician’s dream of possibility and probability equations.  A new season of knitting is definitely upon us.  This is truly in evidence with no math required.

Till soon,
Craftily yours
