Thursday nights are now Knit Nights at Loop! From 5:30-7:30 we will be hosting a knit lounge on the upper floor. Bring your knitting and join us for cake, cookies, tea, conversation and knitting! It’s free, with no need to book, just drop in. (Cake and cookies on sale for a reasonable price). We will also be open for shopping on this evening, until 7:30. Bambi will be joining us for knit nights (and on sale too, but don’t tell him, he thinks he’s one of us).
Ahhhh!… Well, we have finally recovered from the fabulous KnitNation- what can we say but that it was the most perfect fair we have done! The size was just right, the teachers and classes on offer were amazing (I even got the wonderful Nancy Bush to inscribe Knitting Lace of Estonian for Miss Juju!) and we met the most wonderful people.
We are delighted to announce that Susan Crawford has written another great book updating vintage knitting patterns. Her new book is called Vintage Gifts to Knit and includes a variety of super cute patterns for smaller items and the whole family. Susan will be signing copies of her new book at our KnitNation stand on Friday the 30th and Saturday, July 31 at 3pm. The book isn’t available yet but we’ve had a peak and we love it! Susan (Loop owner) is knitting a very cute hooded sweater from it, in Madelinetosh Sock‘s new colour, Isadora. Such vintage dreaminess!
