Thank you to the secret squirrel who dropped these off on Saturday--I'd stepped into the back room, and wish I'd had a chance to thank you in person. They are beautiful!

Reminder: we've consolidated to just one Zoom event for now, but if you'd like to share project photos, chat, or share KAL progress, we'd love for you to create an account at yarnfolk.com and participate in the community we're building there. No intent to be yet another social network, but it's an option for sharing that doesn't depend on any outside platform. You can find it here.
Thursday, July 1st to Saturday, July 31st
This shipment took a lackadaisical journey, but as of yesterday afternoon , I am fully restocked with Trendsetter's New York. Which means that Caribou Hills Hat kits are also back in stock. And it means that I can start my Fireworks 4 Day KAL project! Not having the yarn in time for the July 4th holiday and the fact that the holiday fell on my normal day off means I'm not sure about my timeline for this sweater--like last year, it probably won't be a four-day project! But maybe I'll finish with the KAL by July 30?? We'll see!
I wanted to take a little space to introduce you to Sewn, Yakima's garment fabric store. Many knitters and crocheters are also sewists, and I'm so delighted that there is an indie option for garment fabric in Central Washington!
Sewn is focused on sustainability, and owner Sierra Hutton stocks natural fibers, deadstock fabrics, and a curated selection of secondhand yardage. She also offers a selection of indie patterns*, as well as notions and tools. Be sure to check out her gorgeous Instagram feed!
Handknit and handsewn clothing work so well together for that complete Maker lifestyle!
*If you've only sewn with patterns from the Big Four (Vogue, McCall's, Butterick, and Simplicity), you'll find that most indie pattern instructions are more like what we are used to with modern knitting patterns--step-by-step instructions, with explanation of technique in a glossary.
