As Christmas draws closer, the demand for thicker yarn to make quick gifts is in high demand. Thankfully, we just received Illimani Yarn‘s Cadena 1, a luxuriously soft and super bulky baby alpaca and merino blend. We have a great selection of colours in stock – a lovely sampling in the photo above. One evening, a couple of skeins, and you’ve got yourself a cozy hat or cowl for someone special on your list. Best of all, you’ll avoid shopping lineups at the mall!
Bring your knitting and crochet projects and join us this Thursday, December 14 from 7-9 pm for our last evening social of 2017. We’ll have tea and festive cupcakes to share with you in celebration of another year of happy stitching at 88 Stitches. The shop is also open for after hours browsing from 7-9 pm too.
On this evening we’re also celebrating the wrap-up of our year-long 88 Stitches’ Canada Knit-along. In honour of Canada 150, we’ve been knitting and crocheting projects by Canadian designers since January, and we’re very proud to say we have over 130 Canadian designers listed in our 88 Stitches Ravelry group forum!
We’re holding a random draw for prizes during Thursday night’s social for the participants (from nearby and across Canada) who participated in our knit-along. Even if you didn’t participate in the Canada KAL you’re most welcome to attend the celebration, where you’re sure to find project inspiration.
Please note that our hours remain the same over the holidays, with the exception that we’re closed Tuesday, December 26 for Boxing Day.
