Look Ma! this is what is left!

Last night I took pictures of all the shelves so you can see we really do have lots of yarn left!!! Turly we do. Maybe not alot of yarn with sweater quantities left, but winter is on it's way so you can knit so much with one to three, four or maybe even 5 balls of yarn!

This is what is left of needles. Lots and lots of DPNs...We always need DPNs..whether to use them to knit in the round, you can also use them as stitch holders, cable needles!

Pattern Clearance

Pay cash and we will pay the HST!

Friday, November 5, 2010


The Knitters in this city and beyond are amazing! Thank you to all that have stopped in to show their support and love for the Naked Sheep - it is more than I could have hoped for and imagined. My exit from the retail side of the knitting world is a difficult one and a decision I didn’t take lightly. I will miss my knit night peeps, all the laughs and tears we shared and of course all the wine we drank! The people are hard to leave - the yarn I can totally leave behind (I always know where to find more - Creative Yarns - hint hint!!!)

Thank you also to all the Naked Sheep knitters that supported the shop (and me) over the last two years. Truly, you guys made the shop the awesome place it was…

So - just an update on the clearance sale. Although alot of yarn, needles and books are now in the hands of amazing knitters, we still have a TONNE OF YARN, NEEDLES AND BOOKS LEFT. If you are planning on coming down this weekend, you will be surprised of the amount of things that remain. Boy, did we have a lot of stuff!! Lots of yarn in all weights except for the 16 to 18 stitches/4” range. But all other weights have a great selection left.

Needles are going fast. In two days, our needle inventory was cut in half!

What we do have a lot of is PATTERNS…Oh my goodness that amount of patterns we have is outstanding. If you have the time, please look through them - they are 40% so stock up!

Hope to see you down soon. Have fun!

Sale Update

If you have not had a chance to come to the shop, do so soon! The shop is jammed packed with people from the moment we open to the moment we close. We have no time to sit and eat...We eat while helping people!

Although yarn, books, patterns and needles have been flying out, there is so much stuff (and good stuff too!) still left.

I predict by the end of the weekend though, there will not be a lot of choice. We have alot of chunky, bulky and fingering weight yarn left. Some worsted, alot of DK yarn.

The needles are going FAST! My inventory has been cut in half and the sale has been on for only four days. If you need some needles to complete your set, please come in soon.

If you have time, browse through our patterns as we have so many...

Child's Poncho

Call me crazy, but I think the poncho craze is about to hit us again! Thankfully they are pretty quick to knit up and little kids looks super duper cute in them.

I used the Yarn Harlot's Poncho pattern, however used a thinner yarn and small needles - and viola - instantly down sizes to fit a child!

This poncho was knit with two skeins of cascade 220 and I used a third for the fringe on 6mm needles. There is enough left over of the 3rd skein to knit child size mittens or fingerless ones!
