World Wide Knit In Public Day -- This Saturday, June 11 Yarn Folk

This Saturday, June 11, is World Wide Knit in Public Day, and it so happens that it coincides with Social Stitching! Join us from 2-4pm--we'll be outside on the sidewalk if the weather cooperates, and indoors if it doesn't!
While we do have chairs, if you have a camp chair that is easy to transport, bring it along, and don't forget your sunscreen--this side of the street is usually sunny at that time of day. We'll have light snacks available.

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!

Our Loch Lomond restock arrived, including new-to-us colors Erica (a vibrant raspberry), Salmon, and Denim. And if you loved the cheerful green of the main pattern photo, take a look at Fresh Green. (Sailaway pattern here at Ravelry, and here at Olive Knits.)

We also received some new stickers and cards from Honeyberry Studio. While there are alpacas and a llama on a couple of the designs, these are not specifically fiber-related--but illustrator Yuko's gentle, loving messages resonated with me.

And we have the June colorway from Apple Fiber Studio's Pretty Pretty Yarn Club--Japanese Iris. Pair it with its friends from this quarter--Native Lilac and Royal Velvet--or enjoy those little pops of neon on their own!

…to inspire


 CWU's Student Fashion Show was this past Saturday, and it continues to be one of my favorite local events. From top to bottom, the collections pictured above were created by student designers Erika Ramirez, Mckenzie Chase, Hope Pringle, and Hunter Mcdonald. The program from the show is here, and you can watch the virtual shows from 2020 and 2021 on the Apparel, Textiles, & Merchandising YouTube channel.yarnfolk dividing line (2).png stitch 



I've been on a mission to finish the Outline Tee in Amano Awa. I didn't, quite, but I did finish the front, and just have the upper back to complete, plus the armhole ribbing. If I finish, will that catapult us into warmer weather, or delay it further?? I did get to unfurl the intentionally dropped stitches, which is always a good time.
