My Daughter the Photographer

Kniterary and Hedgehog Stitchery are putting together an ad to go into the Spring Whitby Downtown magazine. I got Rhea to do a photo shoot of some of the items in the shop. She did a wonderful job! I want to share a few of the photos with you.

Could you imagine getting these stitch markers just to hang in a sunny window?? They are so beautiful!

This photo actually made it into the ad. It is my invitation to all of you to join me any Tuesday to Friday for a cup of tea (or coffee), a chat and a knit (or prefered fibre craft)!

Shown in the photo is my unique felted tea Cosy, 2 skeins of Cascade Ultra Pima and the runner is a Mango Moon woven Sari Silk Wrap.

You will get to sit near the Manos del Uruguay! You can stroke it all you want!

I am pouring one for you now!

March to the Yarn!

What an exciting first of March I am having today!
Not only is the weather beautiful but the Spring yarns are starting to arrive!!

Last week Debbie Bliss Amalfi,

Pure Silk

and Eco baby

made their way to the shelves. The Amalfi books sold out before I finished unpacking! Not to worry though new ones came in today!
Then! Berocco sent the new colours of Seduce along with the pattern book that is already on re-order (there is still one in the shop though!)
Today! First in was the new Cascade Ultra Pima. Beautiful colours, sheen and texture!
This pattern can be found in the new Vogue Knitting (Also in today!). The Ultra Pima is a dk weight and would be a good substitute for Debbie Bliss Prima.
Then! (it's not over yet!!) The newest Sublime yarn called Bamboo & Pearls made it through the door (I love the Canpar man!!) This yarn is made from 70% bamboo sourced Viscose and 30% pearl sourced Viscose. You could be wearing your pearls in a new way!

A pattern book came with the yarn and is as beautiful as all Sublime pattern books are!
Tomorrow I will show you some pictures of patterns that can be found in the three magazines that came in today as well. They are Vogue Spring/Summer 2010, Interweave Knits Spring 2010 and Knitters Spring 2010.
You must pop in for a look!
