If you've participated in LYS Day in years past, you'll know that I usually put together a "menu" of special offers and kits. It's not quite complete yet, but we're looking forward to sharing pattern offers and supporting kits from:

  • Casapinka
  • Malabrigo
  • Madelinetosh
  • Blue Sky Fibers
  • Berroco
  • fellow shop owner Margo Erdman
  • Double the Stitches
We'll also have a drawing for a door prize. Look for a very brief email on Friday--it will have a link to our LYS Day offers, and as we did for our anniversary party, you'll be able to preview at 7am on Saturday morning. yarnfolk dividing line (2).png

…new in the shop

We just received a shipment of fiber from Greenwood Fiberworks, and you can find it here. There are a range of options, from luxury blends to undyed fiber. In the shop (but not online), we also have "bits and bobs" that can be spun OR used in needlefelting projects.

…to inspire

Don't miss Spring Girls' Night Out this year--we are going to be debuting a fresh restock of craft kits (embroidery and hand sewing) and we'll have a one-day mini-clearance on some selected items. We've also contributed two gift cards to the event-wide raffle baskets. Enjoy a fun night out with friends, and stop in to see us!

Please note that on Thursday, Yarn Folk will be open from 8:30a until 9p.

...currently stitching


I've continued to add stitches to the Musselburgh Hat in our custom color, Eleven, from Urth Yarns. Here, you can see how it compares to my last Musselburgh (which I believe was one size larger. I will continue until I have three colored striping sections remaining, and then begin the decreases. One of the benefits of using a self-striping yarn is having those visual cues! 

I'm also working on a sample for LYS Day, so you'll be able to see that completed this weekend!
