Favourite Things

November 14, 2017

The holiday gift-making and gift-planning season is underway (ready or not!) and for the next few weeks we’ll share with you some of our new favourite things. Hopefully you’ll  find them as inspiring as we do.  A reminder too that we offer a gift registry at the shop. All you need to do is come in and fill out a card with your wish list of yarn, notions, books, patterns and needles. We will then happily assist your loved ones in making the perfect gift choices for you this holiday season.


Recently we received Cascade Yarns new Eco+ Peruvian Tones. The same soft 100% wool as Cascade Eco+ and Ecological Wool, the same great yardage, with a fun tonal effect. Almost immediately upon opening the boxes, a lovely Bradway shawl went onto the needles, combining the Peruvian Tones with solid colours of Eco+ and Ecological wool.

Project Specs: Cascade Eco+ in Spruce, Cascade Ecological Wool in Vanilla, and Cascade Peruvian Tones in Sycamore. Shawl design is Bradway, by Vancouver Island designer Shannon Cook.

We have the printed pattern in stock at the shop, along with more of Very Shannon’s lovely pattern collections.
