Live Life

Cricket Cove, located in Brunswick Square has skipped a stitch one door down to their new and present location.  It is impossible to not notice the vibrant colors and rich, organic pull from inside the store.  Cricket Cove carries the widest selection of yarns and fibres in the maritimes with yarns ranging from the classic wool to rare and exotic yarns such as Quiviut (muskox), Llama, Silk, Yak, Alpaca, and even sometimes spun dog hair which makes unique and wonderful mittens and toques.  Supplies and accessories, as well as ready to wear thrummed mitts, hats, scarves, and other wonderful hand made creations are available.

If you love the richness and quality of hand-knit but don't have the time, Cricket Cove takes custom orders.  If you are looking for a unique gift, they will do up a wonderful gift bag for the knitter in your life, with all that is needed for a very cool project.  On display for the next few weeks is a masterpiece on display, an artistic creation by Lynette Meek of Tessier Designes from Quebec.  This piece was knit with white yarn and painted and embellished after completion.  This is a temporary display and very impressive.
Men, or those who love their men to look sharp; Cricket Cove has patterns for (or will make for you) pieces that are cool, wearable, and simply classic.

Stop in to Cricket Cove in Brunswick Square and check them out; winter and Christmas are coming, perfect timing.
