Last Chance for Yarn Club 2018 Membership

May 17th is the last day to become a member of
The Knit Cafe’s Yarn Club 2018. 

sign up HERE

Yarn Club is a year long subscription where participants receive beautiful yarns accompanied by original Knit Café patterns. The 2018 subscription will include four knit projects delivered or picked up every three months. The first one will be available in June and we are busy preparing for it now. If you would like to get in on the fun. You still have a few days to get your membership. Read all about it HERE.

The last project for our Yarn Club 2017 was made available to all club members in April, and I am happy to say that the pattern is now available to all through The Knit Café Shop or on Ravelry.
The pattern is called Sunprint. It’s a pretty spring shawl. Just enough to wrap your neck and keep the chill off as the weather changes from chilly to warmish. The pattern Sunprint was named after the yarn colour we called Sunprint.

The colour Sunprint was developed in a collaboration between The Knit Café and amazing Madelinetosh Yarns! That’s what we do for our Yarn Club. We choose the best and the brightest of yarn producers and we design a knitting pattern to suit their particular yarn. We also develop a custom colour that becomes only available to The Knit Café Yarn Club Members. So I am sorry to say that if you have fallen in love with this gorgeous colour we call Sunprint this love will go unrequited. Only Yarn Club 2017 members have received this colour and it is no longer available.

Here’s the silver lining. You can get the pattern for the Sunprint shawl and make your own version of this neck draper. We even have some Madelinetosh Merino Light in other gorgeous colours still available in the shop at 55 Roncesvalles.

Come and get it!
Craftily yours

We’re so happy to see the Clouds!

We have more Shibui Silk Cloud nestled snuggly in the shelves and we couldn’t be happier. silk cloudCloud is a resplendent blend of silk and mohair. It is so soft, and light as air. The strands are whisper thin but the mohair gives it lots of body, the silk gives it shimmer.

We created The Knit Cafe’s Clouds Shawl from Shibui Silk Cloud and I am delighted to say that Knit Kits for this project are back in the store and in the webshop

There are several new colour combinations to choose from. All our colour-ways for Clouds are inspired by Group of Seven painters, who scoured the Canadian landscape and projected what they saw on their canvases in vivid colours. Have a look at the Frederick Varley , A. Y. Jackson, and Frank Johnston colours!

If you’re in the neighbourhood of 55 Roncesvalles you can create your own colour design for your custom Clouds shawl. I’m no mathematician but I hazard to say there are hundreds of possibilities!

Craftily yours
