It's time to cozy up at Sew Dandee!
I know that the calendar says it's officially fall, but you'd hardly know it by the forecast for the next week! But us Winnipeggers know, fall (and sadly, winter) is still going to make an appearance. And I'm here to let you know you don't have to be cold for one minute of it!
I discovered yet another talented knitter in our fair city, the lovely Rosemary Shamess. She uses the most beautiful wools and alpaca to make her unique mitts, hats, scarves, head/neck bands, slipper sox and more. The technique she uses is called 'thrumming'.
Click here to find out exactly how it's done and why it's so awesome.
She even made a point of making some Winnipeg Jets color scheme ones for you hardcore fans out there! And I know there's a few of you.
In addition to all of Rosemary's fine work I've got all the legwarmers, hooded scarves, cowls and much more cozy wear on the floor so come down and load up for the cool days to come, people.
