Maybe you've noticed we have a couple of big events coming up? Here's what we have planned!
Yarn Folk is turning TEN in April, and we're having an all-day party on Saturday, April 15th!
Then two weeks later, it's LYS Day! Holy smokes, how much fun can an introvert have in one month?? A lot, apparently! 🙃
We are looking forward to a fun and busy month, and hope you will join us, especially on these special days!
Normal exclamation point usage returns next week ;)
Current open hours are Monday - Thursday, 7am-3:30pm, Friday 8:30am - 5pm and Saturdays, 9am-4pm.
Join us around the big table for a couple of hours of convivial stitching.
Join us for a fun day with new yarn colors created just for Yarn Folk, excellent door prize drawings, and free gifts with purchase. (And more that we're finalizing details on!)
For the sixth annual Local Yarn Store Day, we'll be celebrating our customers with exclusive merchandise, free pattern offers, and more!
We're bringing back this month-long challenge--you only have to commit to a few stitches a day to enter for prizes at the end!
We assembled kits for Laura Nelkin's Lolancha Sweater with Manchelopis, an unspun yarn from the Manchega Sheep in Spain, as soon as we spotted it on Instagram. This yarn creates a fabric that is lofty, warm, and light. Laura's bottom-up yoke design features the distinctive Lolancha Stitch (named by Laura's alter ego Lola). It looks fancy, but is an accessible technique where you slip stitches and then dip to “grab” them. It's a fantastic textural detail at the yoke, hem, and sleeves.
The pattern includes multiple video links to help you have success knitting your own Lolancha Sweater, including one on knitting with Manchelopis.
A key detail is that the pattern is available through March 31st only, when it will be temporarily retired until the fall! The same is true of these kits--we'll bring them back when the pattern returns, but if you want to cast on now, grab your pattern and some Manchelopis pronto! Kits are here.
The Granny Stripes Scarf using three different colors of Edition 3 is finished. Granny stitch: so hard to put down. The Edition 3 was incredibly satisfying to crochet with, and the finished scarf has a cohesive look, even though nothing fancy happened at the color changes. Crochet to the end of the ball, and switch to the next one! The sample used colors 2298, 2299, and 2362, but we assembled a few other kit options. And honestly, the possibility of making another using just the black/white colorway looms LARGE.
And the border rows of the Photography Shawl in Loch Lomond are set up, so it's back to its starring role as a commute project. The pattern shift, juxtaposed against the main shawl body, will be visible soon!
