Another special guest

Another special guest stopped by Knits by the Sea a few days ago. Former mayor of Vancouver Sam Sullivan stopped by the shop with his wife! Sam Sullivan was an important part of bringing the 2010 Olympic Games to Vancouver. He is also the recipient of many incredible awards including the Order of Canada for his work. It was an honour to have him stop by! You can read more about him and his accomplishments here.

Another project is on display at the shop. For those who have been coming to stitch night you have seen the progress of this top and I'm happy to announce it is finally done! The top is knit with Spud & Chloe sweater which is an organic cotton and wool blend making it very soft and adds a little extra warmth for the cool breezes off the ocean. The pattern is from Stefanie Japel's book Fitted Knits with a slight change in where the ribbing starts at the bottom of the top.

More classes have been posted for September and more will be added! A new class that is being offered is a colour works class. This class will cover fair isle, intarsia and some other basic colour changing techniques. A great class for those looking to add extra colour to their knitting!


  1. The top looks great Ellie, congrats on getting her done!

  2. Thanks Stacey! I'm happy to be moving on to the next project :)
