I know I have made a good decision to take my business out of a brick and mortar shop. I am so much more relaxed, but more importantly, I feel like knitting. I have so many things that I want to knit...
I just received my first shipment of yarn. It is so much fun opening those boxes!
Now I can start my "Lanesplitter". I must not be tempted by the beautiful colours in Diamond Luxury Collection Foot Loose. Nor the Debbie Bliss Eco Baby....focus, focus...at least until the Malabrigo 4 book arrives...

I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday and had lots of time to celebrate, rest, and of course knit.
Although there were lots of preparations and goings on at my house, I must admit I was always thinking about Yarn Indulgences and what I wanted to do with the business.
I will be developing a webpage complete with online ordering. I hope to find studio space for classes, demonstrations and knit and chats.
In the meantime, all my distributors would love to continue to work with me to provide you with as many of your knitting needs as possible.
For your enjoyment have a look at:
If there is anything that I can find for you please email for payment and shipping options.
Happy New Year
December 8, 2012
Thankyou to everyone for their support over the last 5 years. It has been an amazing journey. The market location built up a community that shocked and surprised me with all their comments over the last 3-4 weeks. I had no idea how my shop influenced so many people.
Because of this show of support I will be considering how I can continue to be a local yarn shop for this area.
Keep an eye on the blog in the new year for more info.
Take care, happy holidays, and best wishes,

Just five weeks until the first day of school! I certainly don`t want to wish away the summer but there is somthing to be said for routine....
So to help you think of fall and the thought having more time to yourself, we have started bringing in the new fall yarns. Shipments began arriving last week and more came in today. It is so exciting opening the boxes and seeing the amazing colours pop out at you. My most favourite is the Debbie Bliss Angel Prints. Absolutely wonderful! Lots of new colours too in the Angel. http://www.diamondyarn.com/d/yarn/12-angel-prints/

A little late but Happy New Year to everyone. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. I certainly did with lots of good food, drink and great company.
Now that we have finished our annual inventory(ARGH) we are looking forward to some serious knitting.
I started a shawl/wrap for myself over the holidays in ELLA RAE CLASSIC. I must finish this before I start on the most amazing colour in Malabrigo Merino Lace that just came in. We now have 10 colours and more will follow!

If spring magazines are arriving that must mean that spring will soon be here. Yeah! This issue of Debbie Bliss`s magazine is full of projects that I would like to do. Starting with some oh so delicate mohair lace cardigans to my all time favorite- Baby Cashmerino or Eco Cotton dresses.
Have a look here!
Please see our Classes page for a list of topics, dates and times.
Check out this review. We have all colours in stock. This yarn is as beautiful as Clara suggests!
Want to learn a knitting (or crochet) technique and need someone to teach you? Prefer one-on-one instruction?
No problem. Individual teaching sessions can be scheduled by request all summer long.
Please drop in to the shop, or call us at 519-571-4447 to book a time for your individual session.
This has been a very busy few months and it looks like April will be just as busy! I have the pleasure of working with the Kitchener Public Library as the Artist in Residence for April. Check out their calendar of events.

Thanks a million Anandi!
All of the existing lines have brought out amazing new colours but I am most impressed with the new Debbie Bliss Eco Baby. This is a continuation of her Fairtrade Organic cotton line and I immediately started a little baby tunic! The celery green colour just screamed spring. Have a look http://www.diamondyarn.com/ or better yet drop in and see/feel it! Of course there is a new baby book on the way too!
Spring orders have started to arrive! The first brings in the Debbie Bliss spring magazine. There are some wonderful patterns including one that I had to start right away. I am in love....
