Knox Mountain Shawl Cuffs
Every year, or even multiple times, there is an event in our fibre community that helps us celebrate talent from within. As Fibres West wrapped up last weekend, it became clear that there was spark, something new and unique, that created excitement within the fibre community. This year Knox Mountain Knit Co from Kelowna was the belle of the ball, bringing a new piece of knit/crochet jewellery to fibre artists: the Shawl Cuff!

Simple in design, this affordable accessory was seen throughout the day being worn by the Fibres West attendees and tucked away into many, many project bags meant to mask the stash acquisitions and loot! But the beauty in this piece is how it ties together utilitarian wear-ability and style. It both stops shawls from sliding off the shoulders while adding to the beauty of the handiwork by adding a refined embellishment.
Knox Mountain will be bringing more to this Fall’s KnitCity, but we are proud to be able to partner with these talented designers to make these beauties accessible immediately in store and online. We brought in a few from Fibres West that are already popping off our shelves, but will be receiving a larger selection in the next week or two.
We also have a full selection of hard copies of most of the Knox Mountain Knit Co patterns in store and online including the gorgeous Laurel Shawl featured above.

Congrats to the ladies of Knox Mountain Knit Co on bringing to life some more excitement to the knitters and crocheters in our lives; and also a huge thank you to Brenda of Penelope Fibres for putting together another great fibre arts event with Fibres West 2019!
