Snow Season

November 29, 2022

Snow Season Yarn Folk


Photos from January 9, 2022

With, um, magical weather upon us, it's time to review how we've handled inclement weather in the past, and what small modifications we may make this year.

  • If we know that a weather related closure is imminent while still at the shop, we'll post as much as we know on the door in advance.
  • If the CWU campus is closed before 7 am, Yarn Folk will also be closed.
  • Weather-related closures will be posted online--on our Google listing, Facebook, and Instagram. If weather develops when we are away from the shop, these may be the only notifications.
  • Extended closures of I-90 may affect our hours.

In general, we've been pretty fortunate when it comes to keeping to normal hours. But if we are facing a situation like we did last January (heaven forfend), we will try to be on the HOME side of the storm, rather than the work side! There was plenty of snow in Ellensburg (and travel was strongly discouraged), but as you can see, there was *EVEN MORE* in Roslyn, and it would have been helpful to have been there to deal with it.

Fingers crossed that none of this is especially relevant this year!

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).

We had a great weekend celebrating Plaid Friday & Small Business Saturday! If you weren't able to make it in during the weekend, we still have some of the kits we brought in from Dream in Color. The Jefferson Beanie is a two color slipped stitch beanie, and the kits contain two colors of Dream in Color Classy Cashmere (worsted weight), a faux fur pom, and a snap on hat tag, plus a code for 30% off the pattern. The Out of Line Cowl uses one skein of dip-dyed Smooshy Cashmere (the fingering version of Classy Cashmere, and one of our all time favorites), and the kits contain a skein of yarn, a set of fun engraved acrylic stitch markers, and the cowl pattern. There's a choice of three colors for each of the kits!


We also have a vibrant basket of Madelinetosh Unicorn Tails--52 yards of Tosh Merino Light, perfect for small colorwork projects, perhaps some GNOMES, a pop of color on a bind off, or pick six and make a Toolbox Cowl.

Also? We've got lots of copies of the new Patty Lyons' Knitting Bag of Tricks. It's been awhile since there was a new "tips and tricks" book on the market, and this is an ideal volume to tuck in your own stocking, or give to a knitting friend. Illustrated by the incomparable Franklin Habit!

Tis the season for super bulky beanies, cowls, scarves and more! We've got lots of Malabrigo Rasta, plenty of Plymouth Encore Mega, and we nabbed some Madelinetosh A.S.A.P. when we ordered the Unicorn Tails. I'm always adding to the Super Bulky Super Fast Ravelry Bundle, if you're looking for inspo!yarnfolk dividing line (2).png stitch 


I'd hoped to make more progress on several projects, but that was just not how the week evolved. I was able to finish a couple of repeats of the body of the Pressed Flowers Cardigan in Lanas Light and Dulce. A few more rows, then next up is dividing for the fronts and back! And once again, Purl Strings for the win when you want to see what something looks like laying flat!
