Not yarn related but...

My husband owns the UK Shoppe here in Peterborough and in honour of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, he is hosting a great little celebration at his shop this weekend.

Tessa Mittens

Last winter, a co-worker asked me to make her mittens that would fit her small hands. I found a few patterns that would work, but I didn't like the construction. I'd recently been making socks toe-up, two-at-a-time, so I figured that I could make mittens the same way.

I present you with the Tessa Mittens...
You can find the pattern here.
Also, I will have a similar pattern, coming soon. Rainbow Brite would be proud!

I've Ordered Business Cards!

Celebrating the Yarn Community in Peterborough

The second annual Fibre Arts festival happens this weekend at the Peterborough Public Library. It runs from 10-4pm and only cost $2. There will be a ton of demonstrations and vendors...from knitting to papermaking, from rug hooking to tatting.  Come and enjoy the amazing community of fibre enthusiasts found in the Peterborough area!
Also, coming up in June is the World Wide Knit in Public Day, which is a week-long event running from the first Saturday to the second Sunday in June. This year, in Peterborough, please join us at Millennium Park from 10-2pm for an afternoon of knitting, crocheting, weaving, spinning....fibre arts in general.
Bring a lawnchair, your knitting, some snack and enjoy another day of fibrey-goodness!
