New Yarns & New Patterns = Happy Day

A shipment of gorgeous yarns from Millamia has arrived and the colors are fantastic. It is a sport weight yarn that is 100% merino from Sweden and is machine washable.

The pattern books are written for children but this yarn is great for everyone. One of the pillow cover patterns is a beautiful cabled pattern that would look great in almost every home.
Another shipment that arrived is from Never Not Knitting Patterns from Alana Dakos. Playful Stripes is a yoke construction cardigan which would just happen to work perfectly in Millama:

One for the ladies, Cedar Leaf shawlette that is done in one piece and has a great border - perfect for spring.

And finally a wonderful option for a little girl in Spud & Chloe Sweater, aptly named Chloe by Alana is a great little ruffled bolero.

Stop in and see all the beauty for yourself.

Robbie the Love-bot

Happy February. I wanted to do something happy for the shop window and this is what I came up with.

He is Robbie the Love-bot for Valentines Day. I love his big eyes and warm heart... he can blow kisses...
And he ponders the idea of what Valentines Day is about... or is he signaling for you to call him?

Not too sure but either way he certainly has made many people smile as they walk past today. Come in for the pattern & yarn and make your own Robbie, what kind of 'bot' will he (or she) be for you?

The pattern is Robbie the Radiant Robot designed by Rebecca Danger & I used Spud & Chloe Sweater yarn. We also have safety eyes available at the shop behind the counter. Just ask.
