Favourite Yarns

Yarns (scroll down to source other crafty enablers, and other free pattern sources)

When somebody I don't know already sees me knitting and asks about it, the next question is almost always "Where do you buy your yarn?"  Well, after a few years of experimenting, I've settled on a few superfavourite places.  Here they are!

Biscotte & Cie

Knitterly Things (aka Vesper Sock)

Midnight Sheep

Stoddart Family Farm

Toots LeBlanc & Co.

Twisted Fiber Art

Tools and Other Supplies

Sometimes it's online retailers to the rescue, when you can't find your 3mm round needles.

I buy all my Addi needles from The Addi Needle Shop - love their superfast shipping!

And you can get practically anything else for any needlecraft from N. Jefferson Ltd., here in Canada.


There are sooo many great craft sites on the web.  Here are some of my go-to favourites:




The Daily Knitter

Interweave Knits

Vogue Knitting


Knitter's Review

Knitmap (this gem will find the nearest yarn store, wherever you are!)

More Free Pattern Sources

There are some great places online to source (or celebrate) tons of knitting patterns, many of them free.

Here are some I like:

Head Huggers

Knitting Pattern Central

All Free Knitting

DROPS Designs, in English

1884 Knitted Lace Sampler Book

The Walker Treasury Project

Thank you for the mention. Silvia works hard to keep our yarns soft and beautiful.

Merry Christmas
