Spring Collection 2020

by Debbie Sullivan March 27, 2020

Spring Collection 2020

I've been working on recipes for some new colours to add to our yarn lines over the winter months, many of them inspired by thoughts of spring. We had intended to launch these at Knit City this weekend, but since that's been postponed I decided to take a moment to introduce you to them here on our blog instead!

Please note: quantities of these colours are limited right now, as we don't currently have access to our dye studio due to the COVID-19 situation. We will be dyeing more as soon as we are able to get back to work.

We've added four new colours to our Winfield worsted and Sutton bulky (which brings us up to a total of 20 colour options for these Canadian wool bases).


Celery is a bright and vibrant spring green. Shown here on Sutton, also available on Winfield.

 

Forget-Me-Not is a pale, cool blue, shown here on Winfield, and also available on Sutton.

 

Shiitake is a pale mushroom brown, shown here on Sutton, also available on Winfield.

Wizard is a rich and vibrant purple, shown here on Winfield, also available on Sutton.

We also wanted to round out our Grazioso silk/linen base this spring, since it's a great choice for lightweight projects to work on in warmer weather. The colours we chose are a bit less traditionally "springy" but fill in some gaps for this yarn line (we somehow didn't have any reds yet!).

Rosemary is a medium green with lots of depth.

Cinnamon Heart is a warm, rich red.

Silver Dollar is, well... silvery!

Fig is a deep, desaturated purple, with hints of navy and plum.

And last but not least, I had a lot of fun coming up with some new gradient colour schemes for Crescendo. We've added four new mini-skein sets, plus a new Molto Crescendo contrast colour. These can be combined in lots of fun ways, check out the Crescendo/Molto Crescendo Sets page for some of our favourites.

Flamingo, our new Molto Crescendo contrast, is a soft pink.

Pocketful of Posies, a gradient from pale pink, through purple to blue.

Millions of Peaches, a gradient from yellow through peach to pale pink.

Wintergreen, a light-to-dark gradient in shades of green.

Black Spruce, a green to black gradient which can be combined with Wintergreen go create a longer gradient for larger projects.

Free Pattern: Attic Windows Recipe
Free Pattern: Attic Windows Recipe

by Debbie Sullivan August 20, 2020 1 Comment

The story of this pattern starts back in 2008 when Elizabeth and I, along with our sister Margaret, decided that we wanted to make a blanket for our parents as a gift for their 25th wedding anniversary. Elizabeth suggested we base our blanket design on the traditional Attic Windows quilting pattern, and she came up with a simple technique to knit the squares.

We wanted to share the basic technique for the Attic Windows squares, because it's so adaptable, and so much fun to play with! So, we decided to create a free "recipe" version of the pattern, that shares the basic technique as well as a step-by-step guide on planning your Attic Windows project.

It's only the middle of July, and we've already had some significant heat waves here in Montreal this year, so I've been swapping out my normal afternoon pick-me-up of a hot  black tea for iced tea instead. I've recently discovered this simple method for making my iced tea using green tea instead of black and I've been making it so often that I thought I should share the recipe

It's that time of year again! Our 2020 batch of Norbouillet fleece is already at the mill, ready to be custom-spun into this year's batch of our locally-sourced, 100% Canadian yarns.

This year as we were setting up pre-orders we took some time to look through all the beautiful projects that our customers have made with these yarns over the past few years, and we were inspired to share a few of our favourites here. Thank you so much to everyone who gave us permission to share your photos!
