Welcome to the Needle Emporium
The Needle Emporium is now in its 32nd year of serving customers. The store is located in a historic house in the town of Ancaster, just on the outskirts of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. We are strategically located just off Highway 403, thus making us extremely easy to find from any direction.
Log Cabin Afghan
The Log Cabin Afghan is knit with 20 balls of Noro Kureyon. Each square takes one ball. This is a great project for travelling. You only need one ball at a time. No sewing required - the squares are joined with a 3-needle bind off.
We used Cascade 220 for the border.
We used the Paintbox Log Cabin pattern that you can find on Ravelry.
We have 15 new colours of Hedgehog Fibres Skinny Singles.
100g hand dyed 1 ply fingering weight yarn, approx. 366m/100g. Squishy and soft, with just the right amount of twist! Absolutely non-scratchy yarn. Will work for any lace pattern, especially Stephen West designs for fingering weight yarns. Colours shift beautifully from one to another. Randomly dyed to prevent striping or pooling, as much as possible, our yarns create variegated effect that looks good in plain stockinette or advanced stitch motifs.
From the designer - Andrea Mowry.
I had so much fun knitting The Shift cowl, that when the Spinsters told me they were coming out with a new worsted weight yarn, Dream State, I knew I had to make a Shift Shawl! This super fun shawl has an even larger canvas for color play! This pattern includes a recipe, to make it all your own, or row by row directions for those who want to play it safe!
