Highway Knitting & the Itsy-Bitsy Yarn Store

We’re home!

We got home last night after what felt like a (relatively) short drive. The trip that usually takes three nights only took two this time. That’s because instead of driving the entire Alaska Highway, we cut a loop off by taking the Stewart-Cassiar. It’s a full half-day shorter, cutting one night out of the journey. What a difference! imageTo keep my hands occupied whenever it was my turn to be the passenger, I knitted up this little neck warmer. imageThe pattern is called Bleeding Hearts Cowl, and you can find it on Ravelry. It’s knit with Malabrigo wool that I purchased at the Itsy-Bitsy Yarn Store in Whitehorse. Don’t you love the name?

Honesty, if I had known this fabulous little shop was going to open, I never would have moved away, lol! Well no…not really. But I do pop in every time I’m in town and always find something to love and bring home with me.

Do you have a favourite store you love to visit when you travel?


  1. Oh, and I meant to say I LOVE that color on the yarn! You would definitely need a neck warmer in Alaska. I don’t know about where you are now. =)

  2. Has it been two months already? Were you ready to come home? I don’t think I would have been! I guess this means summer is almost over. School starts here on August 6, so no matter what the weather is, summer will be done.

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
