Salt Water Taffy

Ambah has a new pattern - meet Columbina (pattern purchased on Ravelry)
Harlequin’s cheques dance across this alluring wrap knit in Circus Tonic Handmade’s yarn. Named after the romantic hero’s conniving mistress, Columbina begins and ends with a steady rhythm of easy garter rows, interrupted by a dramatic and entertaining crescendo of two-colour mosaic, and is embellished with a picot flourish. The perfect project for vibrant, high-contrast colours, the bias shawl comes in two sizes and is shaped only with simple increases and decreases, resulting in a spectacular and sophisticated accessory.
 There are two sizes for the shawl - both are knit in fingering weight yarn.



We have new Party of Five kits from SweetGeorgia.
The complimentary mix of Acai, Lupine, Bluebell, Ginger, and Auburn into the Blueberry Cobbler Party of Five set is both satisfying and sweet, decadent and comforting.

Available only in Tough Love Sock (80% Superwash merino, 20% Nylon).
Wonderfully bright and deliciously colourful, our 2018 Candy Shop Party of Five set fills us with utter glee.

The 2018 Fairytale Party of Five set is the gradient of storybook legends. Stately, mysterious, and one you can’t put down.

Available only in Tough Love Sock (80% Superwash merino, 20% Nylon).
Let the vivid, sunny hues of the Salt Water Taffy Party of Five set take you right to the boardwalk where the sweet, chewy candy is made.

Available only in Tough Love Sock (80% Superwash merino, 20% Nylon).
This colourway is calling my name. So pretty. So Spring.

I knit Hitchhiker with one Party of Five kit on 3.75mm needles. It's an easy knit and a great scarf.


Winter Dawn can be knit with one Party of Five kit.

Curiosa is a brand new pattern that uses a Party of Five kit and a full skein of Tough Love Sock.
The shawl has an asymmetrical, elongated triangular shape that grows from one point toward the opposite side. It begins with a few stitches at one tip and is worked lengthwise on the bias. The first section is worked in broken rib. The middle section switches to tilting blocks, before finishing with a short block of more broken ribbing. Because this shawl is worked from one end to the other, the size of the shawl can be adjusted by working more or fewer rows of each section. 
I received an email from a customer this morning who is in Ireland for a vacation. While there she went to see Hedgehog Fibres. They started talking (she was wearing her Find Your Fade knit in Skinny Singles) and The Needle Emporium came up. Our order is the next in the dye queue. YAY! It should be here in time for the Frolic.
