More yarn!

More yarn has arrived at Knits by the Sea from Painted Fleece!! These two new types of yarn are both shiny and so soft and hand dyed in Toronto. The first is the bamboo sock yarn (top picture) with 80% bamboo and 20% nylon. This yarn comes is some great colours which makes is hard to decide what you want to make with it! The second yarn to arrive is a seacell silk lace yarn. This yarn contains 60% seacell (derived from seaweed!) and 40% silk. And with 700 yards per skein one is enough for many different shawl patterns!

And if you haven't already marked your calendar for July should!! It's Knits by the Sea's grand opening party! There will be prizes and giveaways and sales!! And of course there will be yummy food and refreshments all day long. The adult beverages will be brought out at 4:00. We hope you can stop by the shop on that day. There will be lots of fun happening!
