There is always something interesting going on in Victoria!  At the end of our street people gathered one afternoon with their Vintage Bicycles.  Some were dressed in the appropriate attire for the period.  A contest was held later in the afternoon.  It was a great family event that attracted alot of attention on the street!









Coastal Knits has now published their wonderful designs for kids.  "Coastal Kids" will be in the shop soon.  Make sure to call or e-mail us to reserve your copy of this great book.

I've been finishing up some UFO's and this Panguipulli sweater was one of my unfinished projects.  It feels great to finish it and I can look forward to wearing it when the weather is cooler.  The pattern is from Jenny Watson's Araucania book#3 and the sweater is knit with Araucania Panguipulli yarn in col. 8.  I used this yarn for a few projects, and I really like the way it knits up. It is 100% merino and has a nice soft feel to it.  See more colors here.




More progress made on "26 Stitches"
