On the Way to 26!

"Mommy!  It's over!"

Our 25th Anniversary month ended Thursday.  😢  

It was 28 days of revolving Daily Special Sales, including The BIG One on THE day -- February 14 -- and all we can say (AGAIN) is "THANK YOU!" to our wonderful customers and friends for supporting The Crafty Lady for 25 years.

Now we're on our way to 26!

That means we're continuing to provide our best service, ensuring we carry a wonderful array of yarn, needle- and yarn-craft supplies and notions; beading tools and supplies; one-on-one lessons; and of course, a place where yarn- and stitch-crafters can gather once a week for food, fun and fellowship -- the perennial Knit Night. means a return to our weekly Super Special Sale, where we offer one of our sale yarns at 75% off.

As well, with the end of our wintry Anniversary Month came the Supposed-to-be-Spring-Soon month of March.  Hmmmph!  As I write this, we find ourselves in the second day of a three-or-four-day Extreme Cold Warning.  

My neighbours have opined that this means that despite the lengthening days, the clear blue skies and the glorious sunshine, March 2019 is definitely coming in like a LION.


But The Crafty Lady and her staff are looking on the bright side!  For one thing, extended cold weather means more time for yarn-crafting in the coziness of our shop or at home.

For another, it means time to plan projects for the time when Spring actually...ummm...springs!    It's a time to browse those colourful seed catalogues, to plan the layout of gardens or potted plants, or to plan the creation of a summer top or light-weight shawl from our new cotton or cotton-blend yarns.

And it means that even if it's still working-with-wool weather, you can make small items with this week's Super Special Sale -- in sunny colours of yellow or orange, just to warm you up!

from fibranatura

100 grams = 97 metres (106 yards)
100% Superwash Wool
Calls for 6.5 mm needles or an 8 mm crochet hook

Regular Price: $11.00

Special Sale Price: $2.75!!

It takes less than a ball to make this super-cute slouchy toque  (the pattern is "Pupwalker", a free Ravelry download!).  And you'd have just enough left over to make a child-sized pair of the World's Simplest Mittens (another free pattern on Ravelry, designed by Tin Can Knits).

What's not to love?  Sunny colours, cozy yarn, simple patterns that work up well at Knit Night, and before you know it...It'll be Spring!

See you in the shop!
