Ruffle scarves are big, but previous techniques were just too hard and time consuming. However, this scarf is unbelievably simple to knit, and with just seven stiches to the row, it can be whipped up in a few hours. Made with On Line's new wool- blend tape, Solo, nobody will believe how easy it was to make. And since we at Gina Brown's strive to make your lives even easier, we've found away to simplify the 'special technique' used to make this sumptuous project. Just come on in and we will give you a free tutorial on the stitch with any Solo purchase. If you can make a knit stitch, we can teach you all you need to know about how to make this scarf in a couple of minutes!
New yarns are arriving every day through out the month of August. So far we have the new Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK in a rainbow of wonderful colors and the new book to go with the yarn. This makes a total of five weights in this popular soft yarn. Shown here is a longer jacket with an easy cable pattern all over. Make it in a pastel or something deeper. If you love Debbie Bliss you are probably waiting for the new Rowan book. Yes it's here. Drop by soon and we'll show you all the new goodies.
Join us at the Calgary Stampede on Sunday July 9 and Monday July 10. We will have a display of new products from Canada's fabulous Fleece Artist, felted bags and patterns by Noni and a new line of luxurious and affordable rosewood knitting needles. You can learn to knit a flower from Nicky Epstein's new book "Knitted Flowers" and make it into an attractive pin to take home. The book will be available for a special Stampede price. It all takes place in Hall D of the Round up Centre 11am-8pm. There's lots to see in the Creative Arts and Crats area. Over a thousand entries and a new Art of the Western Boot display. See you at the greatist outdoor show on earth!
This is just one of the great patterns available for free from garnstudio.com. They have put most of their designs from the Drops books on line. The plan is to have every pattern available soon. We have a color copy of the new books at the shop but the instructions are only on the web. We love our Garnstudio yarns including their ultra soft Alpaca, Vivaldi and Vienna mohair blends, silky Cotton Viscose, chunky wool Eskimo, and Salsa ribbon. The cardigan shown here is done with about 10 balls of Salsa. If you visit their site be patient, it's a bit slow but worth your patience. Select Ladies patterns and sort by Drops number to get the most current patterns first.
Debbie Bliss has done it again! A new luxury yarn and a great book of fabulous patterns. Choose from five delicate colours. There are several must have shrugs as well as this stunning cable shell.
They say you never regret your small extravagances just your economies. This yarn will give you a classic sweater to enjoy for years.
Fight the winter blaghs with a new spring knitting project. We love all the shrugs and boleros for a little cover up. This cardigan with bracelet sleeves is knit with Katia's "Arc en Ciel", a self- striping cotton blend.
