Merry Christmas!

All of us here would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Thank you for being a part of this wonderful year for us. We feel so lucky to have so many great people supporting our little shop.

Juliet is very excited about Santa coming. Not so crazy about dressing up like Santa though! Juliet just wanted to say thank you for all the great pats this year. She now expects nothing less than your undivided attention when you arrive.

We will be open over the holidays for all your knitting needs. We will be closed Christmas Day and New Years day. So come by for some egg nog and yarn!

Happy Holidays!!

Touch and Feel Catalogues of Yarn!

We here at Knits by the Sea were thinking about how difficult it can be to order yarn online when you don't know what it feels like. And after some more thinking and lots of knitting the Touch and Feel Catalogues of Yarn are now out! These catalogues are designed to help those who live far away from a yarn shop go to a local shop in their town and feel the variety of brand name yarns that we carry. There are swatches of all our brand name yarns knit up on the recommended needle sizes for you to see. We currently have catalogues in Port Hardy, Tahsis, Bamfield and Port Alberni. For full details on which businesses are holding our catalogues go here. Want a catalogue in your community? Contact us!

We hope that these catalogues will help you decide what the best yarn for your project is!

Happy Birthday!

The little greeter here at Knits by the Sea is a year older today! Happy Birthday to little Juliet. I'm sure she will have no idea why she gets extra treats today but I doubt she will complain about it!

If you haven't checked our website in awhile we have posted the December Newsletter! The big news is we have received the new Cookie A. book! This book is full of more amazing sock designs to drool over.

There was also an article about knitting that was just put out in the local paper the Westerly! Stacey and I were quoted in it and the journalist looks at knitting and it's new popularity. A fun read!

Keep your eyes open for specials in January. We will be offering some deals on our upcoming classes so be sure to check back if you are thinking of making a New Years resolution to take some knitting or crocheting classes!
