|Great Pricing on Cashmere!|
I'll be honest - like so many things in my life, finding Effiloche (French for tattered, frayed, unraveling) was an accident. My DH looked up a few knitting stores on his iPad, and had me hold the iPad map navigating to him where to go. At some point I got confused over which little red dot was which, and we ended up at the "wrong" shop. A professional photographer, he insisted we stop anyway as it is across the street from a camera store. And into Effiloche I went.

The women were remarkably personable, the designs represented throughout the store were beautiful (primarily Celine's), and the knitted samples beautifully executed. I was particularly taken with their consistent ability to match the perfect yarn to a project, so that sample by sample, I didn't imagine making the pattern any other way. We were offered beverages, cookies, gluten-free foods, and serene smiles. Click here for the link to the free pattern for the Zephyr Sweater above. (Thanks, Celine!)
If you visit Montreal, drop in. (Not Monday, as they are closed, like many shops and boutiques in the city.) I'll definitely be back.
