January, 2017

  January is here already!!!  We have had a little snow in Victoria, but it doesn't last long, and in some areas it seems to melt away just as fast as it appears.  The weather has been perfect for knitting and stitching, and it is a wonderful time of year to wear all of our hand knitted accessories.

Great hats by Jane Richmond

I knit these gifts for Christmas.  These wonderful designs were fairly quick, and with luxe yarns they were very enjoyable to knit.  It has been so chilly here, I decided to make one for myself as well.
