February is here, and that means it's time for the #FiberuaryChallenge and #28DaysOfYourLYS on Instagram! #FiberuaryChallenge is in its 10th year, originally created by Cecilia Nelson-Hurt (@creativececi) as a means of connecting with her fiber pals on Instagram, and it's grown each year since then. #28DaysOfYourLYS has been underway since at least 2019 (I remember posting from The National Needlearts Association trade show in Portland) and is a way for independent yarn shops to highlight a bit of what goes on inside our walls.
You can follow Yarn Folk on Instagram -- some posts cross over to Facebook, but if there is audio in the post, sometimes they don't. You can also follow the hashtags to increase your February inspiration!
Current open hours are Monday - Thursday, 7am-3:30pm, Friday 8:30am - 5pm and Saturdays, 9am-4pm.
In-store shopping: masks are optional (but welcome and appreciated).
Join us around the big table for a couple of hours of convivial stitching.
Schedule changes related to winter weather will be posted on the door if possible, as well as on Instagram, Facebook, and Google. If roads are crummy on a Saturday, opening time will likely be delayed until 11:30.
Pattern here. This KAL will be self-directed, but please feel free to join in on Saturday social stitching, or to reach out for assistance. The beginning steps are well-designed and explained, but the cardigan starts out a bit differently than most, and I am happy to field questions! Recommended gauge is 20 stitches / 4"--lots of options will work for this! (Lore, Loch Lomond, Tosh DK, Encore, Lanas, Ultra Wool, Rios, Forge, Woolstok...)
We're happy to have our Yarn Folk needle/hook sizers back in stock from Katrinkles! Along with the February Stitch Markers of the Month, and...I couldn't resist adding some Valentine Cat Stitch Markers! 😻
