NEW OFFER FROM CASAPINKA, ROCKET SQUARED CLICK SET PRE-ORDERS, AND RE-OPENING PLANS

NEW OFFER FROM CASAPINKA, ROCKET SQUARED CLICK SET PRE-ORDERS, AND RE-OPENING PLANS

The bottom line here is that I will not have solid information by the time this posts on Tuesday. If Kittitas County’s variance is granted, I will post an update with a link for in-store appointment scheduling at yarnfolk.com/yarnfolkblog and at facebook.com/blog. Things are going to be odd for a good while yet, and we will all have opportunities to practice grace, patience, and compassion going forward.

(While we continue to observe recommendations to limit travel to essential trips, I will continue to commute between Roslyn & Ellensburg with my spouse, and will continue to observe the admittedly odd hours of 7 am-3:30 pm M-F. Future hours will be nailed to this wall of jell-o at a later date. :) )

Hugshot2.jpg

Casapinka is reprising her Breathe & Hope shawl with Hug Shot, a pattern that will be offered for free with qualifying yarn purchase from June 5-7. Like Breathe & Hope, it is a two skein pattern, and it was designed to use similar yarn combos (solid + speckled/variegated). Sharon from Security* declared June 5-7 National Hug Your Pet Weekend, and this pattern offer celebrates Sharon’s inimitable role in Casapinka’s design work.

(*Sharon from Security is Casapinka’s cat.)

While the pattern codes won’t be emailed until that weekend, your purchase of yarn to make the shawl can take place any time from now until 5pm PST on June 7. (The code must be redeemed prior to midnight.)

Breathe & Hope

 

Breathe & Hope is the perfect project to pick up when I need some uncomplicated knitting and the comfort of a cashmere blend. Not only that, the group of knitters participating in this KAL have been a wonderful group to spend time with on Wednesdays at noon. If there is interest, we’ll continue that meeting and merge it with anyone who’d like to knit Hug Shot!

Rift

The Rift tee is nearly at the underarm divide! Knit One Crochet Two’s Daisy, is a plesant-to-knit linen, silk, and hemp blend. I also used this yarn for Thurmont, and it blocks into a fantastic spring and summer fabric.
