Shop Holiday Hours

We hope you had a wonderful Christmas Day yesterday. The new layer of snow has made everything seem so magical. However, many have been affected by the new Covid varient called Omicron, and their Christmas celebrations disrupted. It’s hard to know what to do and how to keep ourselves safe. Knitting or crocheting is always a great way to distract ourselves.

We made the decision this year to close our shop between Christmas and New Year to give all our hard working volunteers a break. We will be closed from December 27th and will reopen in the New Year on January 4th with our usual hours.

  • Tuesday to Friday 12:00 – 4:00 pm
  • Saturday 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Enjoy the Christmas break and come and see us in the New Year.


Santa Hat Ornament

We wanted to show you some of the lovely things you can make this year for Christmas. This is a cute pattern from Berroco and the free pattern can be found here. You can use Berroco Ultra Wool and we do not carry plush, but have Sirdar Alpine which could work.

We bring in several yarns from Estelle and their Estelle Bulky with Merino is one of our more popular ones. Here is a lovely pattern you can use from their website and find the yarn in our shop.

220 Superwash Merino

The 220 line has been popular since Once Upon a Sheep opened in 2003. This particular yarn, 220 Superwash Merino comes in many colours and we have a great collection of colours in our shop. Search this yarn on Ravelry and you’ll find 7,193 projects being done in this yarn. It certainly is popular. Here is an example from Tin Can Knits called Vivid.
