Ange and I are taking a week off. It’s no secret that I haven’t been well so I hope that this helps. We’re going to visit family, Mont Tricot in Sutton, Quebec, then visiting Julie Asselin before heading off to Vermont for a week off.
In the meantime, our sales finally enabled us to make space for so much beautiful yarn and we’ve rearranged the store. You’ll be delighted by the new set up. So far everyone has liked it. Though the pictures below are so dark ’cause it’s so sunny out there, you won’t believe how spacious it is.
Store Hours are back to normal — 11:00-6:00 Monday. Tuesday, Thursday to Saturday. Open till 10:00 pm on Wednesday nights because of Stitch Night, and Sundays from noon-6:00 pm.
Julie Asselin’s Merletto continues to sell like hot cakes, and her Leizu DK is a close second. We’ve had to reorder Merletto three times so far because it is so awesome. I’m knitting with it; pictures to follow.
We got a new shipment of NBK in DK and there are new colours that have just blown my mind. We’ve listened to your feedback and have adjusted our business model to make more sweater quantities available to consumers.
We’ve received our shipment of Berocco Vintage, Vintage Chunky and Ultra Alpaca is back again this year. We also brought back Malabrigo but it’s selling off fast. We also received a new shipment of Biscotte self-striping yarn. It’s stunning. I almost snuck a skein or two in my bag for travel knitting *wink*.
And a new yarn to our store is the Rowan 100% superwash merino. I fell in love with it when we visited our DocKnits friends in Port Elgin and had to have it. We brought in all the colours. And you get a free pattern book with a purchase of 10 skeins or more.
You all know that our beloved Brenna is off travelling and helping her grandma move. I’m so jealous because I know she’s spending time in Portland.
We’ve added Amy and Meg to our team to work with Amelia. Shannon also joined us to take over the Wednesday night Stitch Night. That means more staff, more possibility for private classes. Check out their bios under the Classes tab. In addition to Kate Atherley and Daf Summers, Jennifer Chandler and Scott Fech are joining the Lettuce Knit team as crochet teachers. Scott will teach intro through to intermediate crochet, including Tunisian crochet, and Jennifer will be taking us on a voyage of “pretty” crochet like the Over the Willamette shawl she made in three friggin days!!! We are delighted that they’ve joined our team.
We have some novel new needles holders. You stick your pair of circular needles into them, and they protect not only your needles, but the joins, and prevents knitting from making a daring escape from the needles when the get tossed in a bag.
We’re fully stocked in notions, needles, yarn and felting supplies. Come on by and feast your eyes on yarn, toys, and the always excellent service that our staff warmly provide.
