Can you believe this is the last long weekend of the summer? Fair weather days always seem to fly by far too fast. At 88 Stitches we’ve been busy making preparations for the release of our new Fall Classes and Events schedule. Our email subscribers should watch their inbox for news about our schedule, to be released in a couple of weeks. We’ve got a fabulous selection of knitting classes and crochet clinics for all levels of experience plus a full schedule of local designer trunk show events that we can’t wait to share with you. Exciting!
Our shelves will soon be filling up again with all of the lovely yarn we’ve ordered for a new season, along with new colour restocks of staple favourites. One of those best-selling favourites is Hikoo Sueno, a gorgeous blend of 80% superwash merino and 20% viscose from bamboo. The colour selection has always been outstanding, and right now we have Sueno’s beautiful and limited edition hand-dyed colour collection, which is great for pairing with their existing solid and tonal shades.
We’ve also enjoyed a restock of Lykke Driftwood Interchangeable circular knitting needle sets in the most popular grey denim cases. In addition, we’re delighted to have the brand-new Lykke Driftwood double-pointed needle and crochet hook sets.
The “driftwood” needles and hooks are made of smooth, hard birch with a gorgeous greyed finish that varies with the wood grain. For awhile now we’ve had the fixed circular needles in stock and we’re constantly restocking because everyone loves Lykke’s lightness and their smooth joins. Come test drive a pair at the shop!
We’ll be busy receiving even more new delights throughout September! If you haven’t already, come follow @88stitchesyarnshop on Instagram to see what’s new and what we’re all happily working away on.
A reminder that 88 Stitches is closed this Saturday, September 2 for the Labour Day long weekend. We’re going to enjoy every moment of warm sunshine and the great outdoors while we can, and we wish the same for you.
Happy stitching from all of us at 88 Stitches
