    Hi Dawn,
    I’m sorry to hear you are having troubles finding the shop. If you are traveling north on Simcoe St., you turn left on William St W. It’s just around the corner from Simcoe St. and William St. We haven’t got our sign up yet as of the construction on the building is not completed, but we do have a banner in the window and a #5 in the window. Our temporary sign is going up this week. I hope to see you soon!!

      Hi Anne,
      I carry some variegates in the baby yarns. I carry a King Cole line that knits in stripes. I’m not sure what you mean by marbled. I have many baby yarns to choose from. I hope this helps.

      I do carry Knitter’s Pride needles. I will be ordering kits for the Christmas season. What type of set are you looking for. DPN’s or circular or straight needle sets?

    I was wondering if you had a drop in knitting group and if you do when it was. My daughter has just moved to the area and will be looking for a knitting group when she finally gets settled and unpacked.

      Hi Jenna,
      Yes, I have a wonderful girl who teaches crochet. I can set you up with lessons whenever you are free. Pick an evening or an afternoon. Whatever is best for you. The lessons are 4 hours total, broken up in 2 hour sessions one week apart, so you can practice at home. The lessons
      are $60.00. I supply the yarn and the hook and pattern.
      You can email me or call the shop to plan a lesson.

      Hi Shirley,
      I don’t have the Wallaby Sweater pattern in the shop. I lent my copy to a friend but when I get it back , I will be happy to lend it to you.
      I bought mine online. Soper Creek may have it. My circle is Wednesday evenings from 7-9pm. Come and join us! It’s a good night to enjoy good company and work on your project. There is always someone to help you when you need it. I look forward to meeting you. Thank you for the condolence. My Dad passed away last Tuesday morning. He is at peace now. No more suffering. I will miss him.
