Get Set!

Happy summer solstice! We hope you have heard about our Summer of Sock event which will launch this week, and plan to come out to celebrate the start of summer with us on June 26th from 6:30pm-8:30pm.

 

Here’s a sneak peak to what you can find at Friday’s event…

 

We will be launching two lines of sock yarn new to Vancouver (and possibly Canada?) including this lovely mink/cashmere fingering-weight blend. Mink Yarns (formerly known as Great Northern Yarns) produce affordable luxury yarn coupled with the humane treatment of animals to create one of the softest exotic blends you will ever encounter.

Ooh la la! Some of the softest yarns on earth!

Additionally, remember that lovely rainbow yarn that was posted about here? It arrived ready for sale starting 6:30pm next Friday, along with a number of other gorgeous self-striping yarns from White Birch Fiber Arts. Check out this beauty named Electric Slide…

Hot damn. These self striping yarns knit up with gradient stripes that give sock knitting a new kick.

 

And there’s more in store including the Tin Can Knits’ book launch, new stock of many locally-dyed sock yarn favorites, and more. One final peek at something else you might find in store on Friday…

A special event based around these beauties!

It’s been almost three months at the helm of my new venture in ownership of this store, and I have yet to meet all the lovely knitters, felters and fibre artists that share this little corner of tranquility known as Baaad Anna’s, and I would very much look forward to meeting you this Friday!

      Hi Elise! It is actually a gradient-stick making event with Veronika from YOTH as they aren’t selling more of the sticks but we can certainly make them! Come on Friday to sign up for the event and pick for favorite colourway. Space is limited and will fill up fast!

      Believe it of not, this yarn is so new that it hasn’t been priced yet. It will be on sale starting 6:30pm on the 26th, but it will be comparable to the Etsy price giving allowance to the USD/CND conversion and shipping costs.
