Sugar Bush Yarns Birthday Party

Untitled image 193

 

On June 13, Sugar Bush Yarns will be 1 year old and like you would for any one year old, Georgetown Yarn is holding a week long party from June 12 - 17.

June is also my daughter's birth month and this year she turned 15 so all week long, Sugar Bush Yarns will be 15% off.  Happy Birthday Sabrina and Sugar Bush.

To celebrate Sugar Bush, we are having games and prizes and free gifts.  The first 21 people who come in and purchase Sugar Bush Yarns will receive a free pattern book.

Everyone who purchases Sugar Bush Yarn during the week long party will have their name entered into a draw to win one of two grand prizes.

 "Guess the yarn fibre" and be entered to win a free skein from Sugar Bush Yarns new Autumn lineup.

On Saturday, June 17 join us for cake and the drawing of the prize winners at 3:00 p.m.

It is incredible how many wonderful light weight projects there are available on Ravelry.  For example these Spa Day Facecloths made with DK weight yarn are fun, attractive and portable so great for road trips this summer.

Spa Day Facecloth

Designed by Anne Mancine, this DK weight facecloth knits up quickly and makes a wonderful gift. Or make some to pamper yourself - you deserve it!  Directions are also included in the pattern for a sturdier facecloth in a worsted weight yarn.  Paired with Cascade Sunseeker (cotton, acrylic blend) you will have beautiful cloths.Cascade Sunseeker

World Wide Knit In Public Day

Save the Date WWKIP

Saturday, June 10 is World Wide Knit In Public Day where we bring our knitting and crocheting out of the closet and do it in public.  Most of us already do but for those more bashful types, this is your day and we want to help you celebrate your craft.  Join us at Georgetown Yarn at 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. for a gathering of very social people who will be knitting and crocheting and if we are lucky we will see some spinning and weaving as well.

We will be providing cookies and water but feel free to bring your favourite non-alcoholic beverage and join us.  We do have chairs but bring your own just in case we run out.  We will be meeting in from of the shop at 170 Guelph Street in Georgetown (corner of Guelph St and Windsor St) across the road from the Superstore so come out and play, the weathe is supposed to be very fine.

Moroccan Market Tote

Moroccan Market ToteIt is Farmer's Market season - Georgetown had their first of the season this past Saturday - and this tote (pattern by Tamara Kelly available on Ravelry) is the perfect bag to take with you when you are at the market.  And it is a fun project to make as well.Ball Large Image 337x295

Totes can be utilitarian, handy, functional, and fun. And the Moroccan Market Tote is all of these - plus beautiful and luxurious! The stitch pattern reminds me of Moroccan Tile (hence the name), and is gorgeous enough to carry anywhere you go - Farmer’s market to foreign shores!

Paired with either Bamboo Pop in solid colours or Cottonsoft Crush DK in varigates this Bamboo Popwould make a very pretty bag you can be thrilled to take everywhere with you.
