From the Brunswick Square Shopaholic Blog

Cricket Cove has been in Brunswick Square for 6 years.
The company was started 15 years ago when owner, Donna retired from nursing. She wanted a challenge and at the same time a challenge in something she had an interest in. The business began in her home – she organized some knitters, began knitting sweaters and then slowly evolved into providing yarns and handknits in three stores,two part-time summer stores and an e-commerce web site . Cricket Cove today is one of the largest suppliers of knitting yarns and supplies in Canada.

Their extensive variety of yarns makes them unique. They carry the most exotic yarns available today such as the rare qiviut from Nunavut to the more common commercial yarns. They also support land work with local suppliers in the industry. Cricket Cove also has made on-line shopping available and efficient to customers who cannot visit their shops. In addition, Cricket Cove organizes and hosts KnitEast – the largest, inclusive knitting conference in Canada with knitters and teacher from all over North America. The event is held at the Algonquin Hotel in St.Andrews every other autumn.

On a regular basis staff is constantly coming up with a creative list of classes and workshops that offer something for everyone – everything from drop-spindle spinning to beginner knitting classes. Right now some fun classes are being organized for Easter. All class information is posted on our web site and available in the shop.

Donna encourages readers to drop in to Cricket Cove and try a knitting class if they are not a knitter. The yarns on the market today are fabulous with everything from hand-painted yarns in every fibre to alpaca ,llama, silks and cottons. Everything you can dream of is available in yarn today, there is something for everyone.
As well, there is substantial research today that tells us knitting is good for you for a number of reasons, including mental health, prevention or postponing disease such as dementia and,of course, there is the whole social aspect that comes along with knitting.

Oh Baby !

This little handknit sample in our Moncton shop  has been inspiring customers to try the Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino yarns for that special little someone.  Such a lovely yarn to work with and nice array of colors to choose from.  

Sweater pattern is from  Baby Knits for Beginners by Debbie Bliss and "sandals" pattern in Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino book # 1.  

Just so everyone is clear ...
