Secretive Storms Secretive Storms I can't tell you how relieved I am to finally get this secret out. Literally. After seeing the number of views to my blog skyrocket from posting Stalwart Staghorn, I've been stitching my little heart out at a fevered pitch just trying to finish up this pattern in time for Friday's post. Kelli, Kevin's sister (yes, it's the same Kevin from this post), celebrated her annual 29th birthday this week. Now, I had wanted to send her one of these hats, but (selfishly) I've been too busy trying to hammer out this pattern.

From Ewe to You
One of our customers dropped off two boxes (shoe box size) of vintage yarn. The majority of yarn was manufactured by Newlands & Co., Limited at Galt, Ontario (in 1973 Galt amalgamated with the towns of Preston and Hespeler, and the hamlet of Blair to form Cambridge, Ontario). Newlands & Company, was established in 1884 to produce knitted cloth and imitation buffalo robes, cold weather garments, coats, caps, mitts and rugs. The original plant still stands today. Newlands & Co., Limited no longer exists under that name. Another yarn that was in the boxes was a fingering weight yarn in very good condition manufactured by the Maitland Spinning Mills Ltd. at Listowel, Ontario. tumbler tumbler
