Yarn Indulgences Trunk Show October 27

You heard right – The Knit Café is hosting another trunk show featuring another terrific, local, hand dyer! It’s this Saturday!

Yarn Indulgences Trunk Show at The Knit Café
55 Roncesvalles Avenue
Please join us on Saturday October 27
11am-4pm

Yarn Indulgences is known for their beautiful, variegated, colour-ways dyed on luxury fibres such as merino and silk and cashmere – oh my! Some of these yarns are spun right here in Ontario. We featured such a yarn – called Zed Lux Worsted when we created our Branching Out Mitten Pattern. I can tell you from personal experience this blend of merino cashmere and nylon is a dream to work with.

We look forward to seeing all the goodies when Deborah from Yarn Indulgences arrives on Saturday. We hope you will come buy and say hello to this talented lady and give the yarn a squeeze.

We are so lucky to have such creative spirits in our midst!

Craftily yours

Westlake Knits Trunkshow at The Knit Cafe

The day is drawing near my friends when this talented local hand dyer sets up shop in The Knit Café for a one day only event. We are really excited!

Join us on
Saturday October 20, from 11am-4pm
55 Roncesvalles Avenue

I hear tell that Kerri from Westlake will be bring several yarn bases in different weights. All of them will be naturally dyed of course and many will feature woolen yarns that are breed and milled locally.

I am also excited to report that we will also have some of Westlake Natural Dye Kits on hand so interested parties can try some natural dyeing at home. Fun!!!

If you are a lover of hand dyed yarns there is no better time to visit The Knit Café then right now. In the last week we have received stock from Canadian Hand Dyers Lichen an Lace and also (brand new to The Knit Café) Ancient Arts Fibre, and all the way from Ireland a big batch of Hedgehog Fibre yarns.


Lichen and Lace – 80/20 Sock. We also have some beautiful worsted weight!


Ancient Art Fibres – Big Squeeze


Hedgehog Fibre Sock. We have mini skeins too!

See you on Saturday
Craftily yours
