This thing is WARM! I took a selfie showing what The Snuggle Is Real looks like when worn anyway!! See below for details.
My project for the last week has been updating photos at yarnfolk.com. I started by making a list of nearly all the yarn in the shop, then cross-referencing against the website to see which needed to be added, which had photos taken before I set up a photo lightbox, and which needed corrections or additions to the tags that make the site searchable. No two displays will show colors exactly the same way, and when the yarn is hand-dyed, no two skeins are exactly the same, but I'm happy to use these warm summer days to upgrade the site!
Current open hours are Monday - Friday, 7am-3:30pm, and Saturdays, 9am-3pm. In-store shopping: masks are optional if and only if you are fully vaccinated.

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
I've added kits for The Snuggle is Real with two options: the "Make it Work" option with a single skein of each of the three yarns, and "I'll Take Mitts With That," which has an additional skein of Ultra Wool.
If you choose "I'll Take Mitts With That," I'll include a printed copy of the free Tin Can Knits Maize Mitts (which has a full mitten option), and you'll have enough of the main color to work the pattern to the depth specified along with a pair of fingerless mitts. (You'll use all or nearly all of CC1.)
If you choose to "Make It Work," you'll need to modify the depth of the gaiter a bit to avoid running out of the main color. You will still have a cowl that is warm and cozy--it will just be a bit shorter, and you'll need to pay more attention to your yardage. If you enjoy a good game of yarn chicken where the consequences are limited to the possibility of having to back up a few rows, this is a good option!
