December Newsletter

It is hard to believe that December is already here!!!

I hope that you have all gotten a good start on you Christmas knitting!

On the shelves there are a couple of chunkier yarns available for those quick last minute scarves, hats and mitts. I have just completed a new scarf pattern called Ebb and Flow with Berocco Peruvia Quick. It is a fun short row quick knit perfect for both men and women. There is a photo of Rebecca's on her latest Kniterary Knews post.

This Saturday December 4th Tara Bergeron of Soul Xpression will be showing and selling her jewellery upstairs at Our Little Green House. Items will be for sale at up to 50% off! She is also offering an embellishment class for the Tara Goddess Cowl from 1 - 2:30 PM. There is still time for you to knit up yours and come and take part!

Also on Dec. 4th the Santa Claus Parade will be going past the shop in the morning. You are welcome to use our porch as a home base and pop in for coffee or hot chocolate or to use the washroom.

Thursday December 16th is our pot luck Christmas Party! Mark it on your calender and join us. We will be having an ornament swap as well for those who are interested. More details to follow!

Ebb and Flow

Hello Everyone!

So this week there has been a lot of changes. We have changed around our displays, so some completed projects from upstairs are now downstairs. We have also changed our theme to Christmas (Have you started on your Christmas knitting yet?!?)

The main display features Martina's Christmas tree hats (Patterns now on sale), The Tomato that ate Christmas, Tara's cowl, as well as my knitted Rasta hat (Samuel, out of the Berroco Sundae and Peruvia Quick #299 book, made with Peruvia Quick colour 9123). On the same mannequin that my hat is on, Martina's Ebb and Flow scarf is around it's neck (her own design), out of the same color.

Also this week I began my own Ebb and Flow scarf using the red Peruvia Quick and the pink Sublime kid mohair held together (Pictures Above) and finished today (The ego boost when you finish a project in a couple days is great, isn't it?)

Until next week,
