How about some books for this hot weather!

Well it yet again appears to be summer here in Tofino. I knew it was there somewhere. And rumours were that it was even as close as Port Alberni. But it just wasn't quite happening here. So yesterday was the first really hot day here since that week of sunshine we had in July! And the forecast is looking good for the week! So with everyone heading to the beach we are happy to let you know that a big shipment of books have arrived! It's the perfect companion to take to the beach along with your knitting. Pictured above is one of my favorite summer knitting books called Indigo Knits. It has tons of great summer knitting projects including a great beach bag and tank top.

And with all these foggy days that we have been having I decided to try the Noro Retro and make a hat for Jesse. Pictured above you can see how great this yarn knits up and it is super soft! I love the subtle striping that it has. I'm currently working on hat #2 in the bright pink and will post pictures of it when it's done.


  1. Today was awesome! Spent the day at Kennedy Lake just ch...was going to say 'chillin' but that wouldn't be quite right since it was 'hot', lol. Not a cloud to be seen except for the occasional plane.
    My mind has been on toques since visiting your shop this week. Something to look forward to once the fog sets in, which will probably happen again all to soon. Going to need some ear warmers for Fall and Winter too...

  2. I'm so jealous you were at Kennedy Lake! Already the gray has returned but hopefully not for very long. Definitely fun fall projects are hats and ear warmers!
