Two Great Canadian Things
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.
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.
