We are going to doing something a little unusual next week--namely, Yarn Folk will be open for CURBSIDE PICKUP ONLY AND ONLINE ORDERS ONLY on June 8th & 9th.
The issue is that the storeroom needs an overhaul, and in order to reorganize it, including adding some shelving, I will need to make a terrible mess--and then put it back together. After gaming out several possible scenarios, I decided that closing the shop to in-store shopping for an abbreviated amount of time would allow me to complete the work most efficiently. What I can't accomplish in two days should be possible to finish in the early mornings--but without removing much from the room.
There will be some concrete benefits to your shopping experience that follow from this reorganization project, and I will let you in on those shortly! Thank you for your patience!
Current open hours are Monday - Friday, 7am-3:30pm, and Saturdays, 9am-3pm. In-store shopping: mask covering nose and mouth required for the duration of your visit. We continue to be mindful about making it possible to maintain social distancing in the shop.
Thursday, May 20, 4:00-6:00pm

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.
Friday, May 15th to Wednesday, June 23rd

A fellow shop owner reported that OGE Knitwear designs have (mostly) been returned to Ravelry In-Store sales after a short time away, which was very good news. They are among the sweetest children's sweaters, rompers, and dresses out there! The shop sample Sun Dress (without) Matching Hat was knit in the largest size (12-24 months), and its generous sizing would allow it to be worn as a shorter dress and tunic for an even older child. (All links are Ravelry links.)
Water Bearer is FINISHED! I'm so glad I persevered through my mistakes--the finished sweater was worth correcting them. While not fully reversible, the lapels are entirely, and are joined to the body of the sweater in elegant ways. There were quite a few ends to weave, but they are all in convenient places.
The Berroco Ultra Wool I used stood up to frogging and re-knitting, as well as multiple baths, and behaves beautifully.
The Felix Cardi continues to be solid black, and not terribly interesting to photograph, even in peak summer sunlight. However, please notice those sleeves. That's right, I knit approximately 3.5 sleeves this week. You can't trap me on Sleeve Island!
