The Last, Sweet Days of Summer

Are you enjoying your last sweet days of summer? We are!


If you’ve met us in person, you’ll know that we don’t put down our ChiaoGoos just because the thermometer gets crazy – knitting is a year-round activity. One of the delights of being human is to know that, when it gets hot, cooler weather is around the corner and it's time to prepare for it.

 Daydreamer kit

If you want to be warm in November, now’s the time to cast on your next sweater. We’ve got lots of sweater bags in stock, and we like you so much that we’ve made you a couple of discount codes!

  • Use SWEATAAAH for 10% off your purchase of 4 or more skeins of fingering weight yarn from SweetGeorgia, Malabrigo, Lichen and Lace, or Dream in Color. (Yarns include: SweetGeorgia Tough Love Sock, Malabrigo Sock, Malabrigo Mechita, Lichen and Lace 1-Ply Superwash Merino, Dream in Color Jilly, and Dream in Color Smooshy.)
  • Use SWEEETER for 10% off your purchase of 6 or more skeins of DK or Worsted yarns from Malabrigo, SweetGeorgia, or Mineville. (Yarns include: Malabrigo Rios, Malabrigo Merino Worsted, Malabrigo Dos Tierras, SweetGeorgia Superwash DK, Mineville Merino Nylon DK, and Mineville Merino Single Ply DK.)

*Both discounts are valid until September 7. Our system allows only one discount code per order; if you’d like to purchase more than one sweater quantity, send us an email and we’ll ensure you get the full discount!

Nightshift kits 

Kits are hot right now, and you can find lots of beautiful options in our shop. Here’s “Hanging Basket”, the stunning new colour combination we just introduced for the super popular Nightshift shawl. Did you know that, even if you bought your Nightshift pattern directly from the designer, our technical notes are included free with your yarn purchase?


Laine Magazine is a truly beautiful knitting lifestyle magazine…more like a book, really. If you need to fill out your collection, we have some back issues in the shop. We are accepting pre-orders for Issue 9, due out in September – pre-order now to make sure you get your copy! (We mail out all pre-orders within 24 hours of receiving our shipment.)

This fall, after four busy years of classes, Shannon’s taking a well-earned break from group teaching. However, you'll be happy to hear that she is offering one-on-one technical lessons and project help by appointment! Contact us at for rates.

Time Trades kit
If you’re one of our lovely locals, you’ll notice our studio hours have been reduced. But no worries... we're still available by appointment! When you arrange a time to pick up your online purchases, you can pop in, browse, and add whatever you’ve forgotten (or didn’t know you needed). Also, we’re always happy to bring your new stash to our monthly Knit Social!

the Girl from the Grocery Store kit
We hope to see all our local friends again at our next Knit Social on September 2 at 7 PM, at Sybil Andrews Cottage in Willow Point.

Knit on, friends!

Shannon and Gwen
