Yarn Challenge 2016

You have been asking and we have been deciding.  It's difficult to come up with a Challenge sometimes; looking back at some of the selections from previous years and wonder how can I make this year different:

2009: We used 100% wool dk/worsted, in 9 colours!

 2010: Featured Mission Falls 1824 (now discontinued)

 2011:  Cascade 220 was new to the shop the challenge was to use the 3 neutral and add one of the bright accents/

 2012:  Berroco introduced the Weekend line of Yarn, still one of our favourites!

 2013; It was time to go a bit finer and introduce the Cascade Superwash sport.

 2014:  The Olympics gave us the idea of using a Canadian Yarn in Red and white.  Briggs & Little gave the participants a chance to try some truly Canadian Yarn.


2015:  The Yarn of the Sheep!  We featured a yarn from Estelle Yarns.  In Sheep colours!

This year we are featuring a new yarn: Tradition from Diamond Select:
3 fresh colours to celebrate spring!

Kits are ready!  They are $6.00 this year and it gives you about 90 grams of yarn, 30 grams of each colour.  You can purchase more yarn in any of the colours given.  Completed entries can be returned anytime before March 4th!  We have only made up 18 kits and a few left yesterday!
Oh yes, there are prizes!
See you soon!
