Gingerly stitching into a new year

Gingerly stitching into a new year

Here we are at the beginning again.

How did your fiber year begin? I am seeking BALANCE, and so on January 1, I pursued the goal of finishing a sleeve on the Purl Code pullover *and* started a project just for fun--the Comfort Socks.  

Do you have any crafty intentions for the new year? Exploring colors, learning a new skill, playing with a technique: there are so many possibilities. And one of the nicest things about the fiber arts is that there is nearly always something new to learn or explore.                                                    

Current open hours are Monday - Thursday, 7am-3:30pm, Friday 8:30am - 5pm and Saturdays, 9am-4pm.

In-store shopping: masks are REQUIRED for all guests over age 2. Thanks for your help in keeping my business open to the public!

...to anticipate

 

If experimenting with design is part of your intention for 2022, we've added a few useful books to yarnfolk.com. (Note that while it is possible for us to send these out using Media Mail to save on expense, they can *only* be sent with other Media Mail-eligible items to qualify for the rate.) From colorwork to cables to textured crochet, there are some excellent resources here.yarnfolk dividing line (2).png

…to inspire

While not directly related to our fiber pursuits, I wanted to share Amanda Gorman's performance of New Day's Lyricyarnfolk dividing line (2).png

One sleeve (The Purl Code in Topaz) and one sock (Comfort Socks in Lopi + Aerial). Both need a mate! The second sleeve is on the needles, and the second sock is well into the heel flap. I predict the sock will be finished first: warm feet > Sleeve Island.
