a brand new Knit Cafe

Some of you may not have been able to visit our new shop in person yet, but I don’t want you to perish from curiousity – so here’s the virtual tour!


Come in and look to your right.
You’ll see Knit Cafe patterns, mini skeins, needles and notions too.


We received many beautiful bouquets at our opening party, they’re keeping our critters company.


Come on into our class room.  This is where all the knit action happens.  We are so happy with all the natural light that comes through the patio doors.


Do you recognize the orange colour? We borrowed bits and pieces from the old space for the new.  We kept some of our tabletops with the carrot coloured marmoleum.

Please come and sit for a spell and have a cup of tea.

Knit samples!  including a few new ones hang on the good-old circular pegboard display.  A linen sweater made with Shibui Linen and a small and cozy raglan, we knit in preparation for our Sweater Class.


We had a devil of a time figuring where to put the swift, but we think we found a great spot.


Turn yourself around for the view of the shop from the class room!


The best thing in the shop is still all the beautiful yarn.

We have a few new arrivals that came in for the opening.  Yarn  from Sweet Georgia in Vancouver, this hand dyed merino is a DK weight with quite a hardy twist.

↓ Indigo Dragonfly’s sock yarn – yum!


Freia lace weight yarn is hand dyed to knit a “ombre” colour pattern.  One colour subtly blends into another throughout the skein. So beautiful!


More self striping yarn from Turtlepurl!


I will report new comer details soon, but old favourites like Koigu Kppm should not be ignored.


We’re almost through.  Here’s the owl’s eye view of things, in our very first window display.


That’s it! The rest you will have to come and see for yourself!
This weekend will be lovely, on Sunday we are hosting our free PomPom workshop! Everyone is welcome.


See you soon
Craftily yours
