Calling just a moment's attention to a couple of small schedule changes for April--on Monday, April 11th, and Monday-Wednesday April 18-20th, Yarn Folk will open at 9am instead of 7am. I will be at a vendor meet up on the 11th, and making a quick trip to Boston the following week. Liz will be on hand to help you with all your fiber projects while I'm away!
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). Thanks for your help in keeping my business open to the public!

I love seeing finished projects! This piece was woven by Jim Davenport, using a 100+ year old buggy wheel as base. He has additional pieces displayed at the Manastash Lodge at Lazy F Camp & Retreat Center.
Continuing with the Stripes of Joy Sweater in Berroco Lanas I separated for the sleeves, knit the first stripe of the body, then returned to the left sleeve two more colors in the stripe sequence will complete the decreases, and I expect I'll be ready for the cuff ribbing immediately after that.
One of the advantages of top-down sweater knitting is the option to try it on while it is in progress (even easier with Purl Strings). With this sweater, I decided to add about 1/2" yoke depth (one background color skinny stripe) before dividing for the sleeves, and I'll be able to confirm the sleeve length before starting the cuffs.
I also added some rows to my colorblocked verson of Annabella's Cowl using Wool Addicts Honor (which is 50% alpaca, but I digress). The third and final color will be black. (I'm using one ball of each color.) Years ago, I had a version of this cowl that I wore constantly--the concept of a very tall tube that puddles around your neck is kind of genius, and I definitely pulled it up over my ears as an impromptu hood when the w*** howled. Ahem. Not that it does that here.
