Fabulous Blocking Mat from Creative Yarns

Ever wonder where on earth (well at least in your home) you are going to block your latest knitting creation?  This prize is the answer!

Creative Yarns has donated a Block ‘n Roll Flexible Blocking Mat as a Pucks n’ Purls prize.  This blocking mat is a boon for knitters.  When opened flat it is 38” W x 50” L, big enough to accommodate most projects, and the 20mm X 20mm grid lets you line up edges and seams before you pin directly to it.  The surface is Teflon® coated fabric laminated to fire retardant 8mm foam which the promotional information says “allows for steam, wet blocking and pressing.”  You can lay the blocking board on many surfaces, and because it is so flexible, you can even move it if you need to.   

When you are finished with the blocking mat, just roll it up, tie it with its built in ties and stow it way.  Its rolled size is only 38” L x 6” diameter, so it doesn’t take much room.

I have one of these mats and I love it.  

Thanks for the generous donation Creative Yarns.

Visit Creative Yarns at 269 Ellesmere Road, Scarborough, ON.  It’s right on the TTC line and has lots of free parking.

Knitting Tote Bags from Creative Yarns

Terrific Knitting Basket from Creative Yarns

Creative Yarns, a local yarn store at 269 Ellesmere Rd in east Toronto (formerly Scarborough), has donated a fabulous Vivid Allon knitting basket by Janetbasket for the Pucks N’ Purls raffle.  This large sized basket (18”x10”x9.5” high) is in a purple with lime green polka dot pattern aka “Twighlight”.  There is enough capacity to hold several “works in progress”.  

The basket comes folded (see picture) and can be stored in a small space.  When opened the handles can be secured together for carrying ease, or the handles can be folded down flat with the top of the basket.   This is a great project basket, but it has many, many other uses.  It is very popular with Creative Yarns customers.
