What a year it has been! I cannot believe how fast this year has sped by despite all of the challenges that we all faced! Now there are only days left until Christmas and another few days until the new year!
For those who still have last minute Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers to buy, I am open tomorrow until 4 pm for curb side pick up. Next week, I will be open normal hours on Tuesday and Wednesday from 10 am to 6 pm. If you can't make during the hours above, I am pretty flexible so just ask! I will be doing inventory between Christmas and New Years!
Shopping for someone else but not sure what to give them? Give them the gift of choice with a Sue2Knits and Yarn Gift Card! An E-Gift card is delivered by email with instructions to redeem them at checkout, enter the recipients email in the comments field if you would like them to receive it ASAP. If you would like to purchase a physical gift card for a local resident, let me know in the Comments of your purchase.
What about the newest Laine Magazine, Issue 10, Interpretations Volume 7 or Making Magazine No. 10 - Intricate or older issues, Saltwater Classics, Gifts or Mittens!
Cocoknits Flight of Stitch Markers, small or large Colored Stitch Markers, Maker’s Keep, MAB Elements Shawl Pins, JUL Designs Shawl Pins.
Of course, there is yarn, kits, knitting needles and needle sets too! There really isn't any shortage of gifts for the maker in your life (or yourself of course)!
New in...Ancient Arts Colour of the Month Ugly Christmas Sweater and Snow in Passion 8!
Have you wondered what Ancient Arts Colour of the Month Ugly Christmas Sweater looks like knit up? Here is their swatch!
This is your chance to knit or crochet your very own stylish sweater or vest and be able to say with a perfectly straight face "but this is my ugly Christmas sweater" over your Zoom parties and festivities. An even better reason to make a sweater with bright and happy colours is that it will make you smile when you wear it in the dark dreary days of January and February.
My Stripes! by Andrea Mowry is moving a little slower because I have too many things on my needles and not enough time to knit! I started with Lichen and Lace Rustic Heather Sport yarn leftover from my Sirius sweater by Camilla Vad. Of course, that wasn't enough and I needed more!
I am finished the 4th colour of 25 on my ADVENTuresome Wrap by Ambah O’Brien using a Koigu Advent Kit in Mica!
KNIT GROUP AND GALLERY
The current Knit-Alongs are the Any Sweater / Shawl KAL and the Knit Your Project: the everlasting knit-along to encourage and support you to knit is running from October 1 to December 31, 2020.
Don’t forget to post a pic to the finished object (FO) thread whenever you finish a project during the Knit-Along so that you will be included in the next draw! We will also add the option of posting your finished project to Instagram using the #sue2knitskal so that I can find them!
