The weather outside is frightful...but wool is so delightful.

December 28, 2021

The weather outside is frightful...but wool is so delightful.

This will be a quick one! My wish is that your holidays were loving, safe, and filled with joy.

Our plan for this week is the same as last week--regular hours Monday through Thursday, closing a bit early at 3:30 on Friday, and closed on New Year's Day. 

We are generally pretty good at getting to work in crummy weather, but if we experience any delays or last minute closures, you'll find the info at yarnfolk.com, Google, Facebook, and Instagram.                                                                              

Current open hours are Monday - Thursday, 7am-3:30pm, Friday 8:30am - 5pm and Saturdays, 9am-4pm.

In-store shopping: masks are REQUIRED for all guests over age 2. Thanks for your help in keeping my business open to the public!

Not a lot of inbound shipments this past week, but we did add some new sweater-sized Kiko Drawstring Bags in a variety of fun fabrics! yarnfolk dividing line (2).png

…to inspire

My sweet friend Greta started a pair of Comfort Socks by Ozetta Knitwear (at ozettaknitwear.com or on Ravelry) on Boxing Day, which sent me down a rabbit hole! Hailey's designs evoke a sense of calm, relaxed comfort, and I could use more of that vibe right now. Above is the Towns Sweater, which is tempting me to cast it on most directly. yarnfolk dividing line (2).png

...to stitch


It was a busy week, with last-minute shipping, Chex-mix-making, and snow shoveling, but in some quiet moments, I spent time with my Mondim Socks and with The Purl Code sweater in Topaz. Once I finished the second ball of yarn (midway down the body), I added the next ball to one of the sleeves and knit a few inches. I had the sleeve stitches held on Purl Strings--hoo boy, how did we survive before these handy things. No transferring stitches one-by-one--I just pushed my needle tip into the end, and pulled it through the held stitches, and we were ready to go. And I attached the freed Purl String to both needle tips still waiting for me to return to the body--I can try it on any time AND my stitches are saved from slipping off. 
(PS -- The Purl Code is available as a cardigan, too!)
