Welcome!

We've finally got this blog going after forever saying "we really should". Thanks to our blog angel, Nicole, for getting us on track.

We have so much to write about! We plan to tell you about our new products, specials, classes and special events. We hope to inspire you with photos of some of the beautiful knit and crocheted creations we see every day in our stores. Please email us photos of your projects and we'll post them here. We'll also keep you up to date on the latest knitting and crochet trends and industry buzz.

Speaking of special events, we're pleased to announce that we'll be hosting the Canadian launch party for Kim Werker's new book, "Crochet Me: Designs to Fuel the Crochet Revolution" on October 23, from 6 - 9 p.m. We hope you can join us. This is Kim's new book:


Kim is the editor of Interweave Crochet magazine and the founder and creative director of crochetme.com. She lives in Vancouver and is a regular UY customer. Kim is on a mission to revolutionize crochet by reinterpreting crochet design and demonstrating that crochet can be stylish, edgy and fun. With her abundant charm, boundless energy and determination, this woman will accomplish anything she decides to do!

Kim will be signing her book and giving a talk about the many creative possibilities of crochet. There may be an opportunity to learn some new techniques so be sure to bring a hook and some yarn. We'll also preview some of the outstanding fashions featured in the book in an exclusive trunk show.

To register for this event, please send us an email or phone us at 604-228-1122. You'll be guaranteed a spot if you sign up by October 9. There may be a small admission charge, depending on the number of registrants.

Kim's book will be released on October 8 and we expect to receive our shipment in mid-October. We have one advance copy of the book so come in and check it out at our Point Grey store. To reserve a copy, please send us an email or phone us at 604-228-1122.

I had no idea Kim lived in Vancouver! How cool!

And welcome to the blogging world (finally!) :D

I love to come and visit the shop (W 10th) when I'm in town.
