Two Great Canadian Things

Recently, I posted a blog entry reviewing the new Koigu book, Wrapped In Color, which Amazon starts shipping this Tuesday, though you can pre-order. now through Amazon

Pam, of “In Stitches” blog, has written a much better review of the new Koigu book than I did…you might also want to read her review.

Koigu Yarns and Other Canadian Favourites

It’s no surprise that I love Koigu, and recently, one of my very favourite yarn stores has started selling their yarns on-line.  Espace Tricot has an amazing store in Montreal, but since I rarely get to Montreal, I was thrilled when they opened their on-line store.

Two items you should take note of (I’m sure there are more that I haven’t seen):

  • Scrumptious Purl Self-Striping Sock Yarn
  • Homegrown Tanis Fiber ArtsYarns

The self-striping yarn I did one of my recent pairs of socks with:

Check out her colorways and get the yarn while it’s in stock.  They often have difficulty keeping inventory on-hand.

Also check out their Tanis Fiber Arts yarns…They’re from a local farm and mill and I felt compelled to buy some of this gorgeous yarn when I was up in Montreal.

They also carry Koigu and have tons of different colorways in their on-line store.  I think they have the Canadian Connection with Taiu.

Current Knitting

I finished the center block of the Unforgettable Yarn blanket for my niece and it turned out to be a lovely, lightweight blanket.

Now I just need to do a couple of narrow side panels and maybe an edging.
