Colorful new shipment of Footprints from Blue Ridge Yarns on (another) gray day….
Sorry to miss you today, but I will be open regular hours tomorrow, and open circle will be in session from 5-9 pm!
Thursdays are always Girls Night Out at Yarn Folk, but tomorrow (December 12th) all of downtown Ellensburg gets in on the fun! In addition to regular knitting circle from 5-9, we’ll have an assortment of fresh fudge from Mac-A-Bee’s of Cle Elum, a small treat with every purchase, a $5 bonus bump on any gift certificate purchase of $25 or more, and of course, every $10 you spend earns you a chance to win one of the event-wide gift baskets. Come say hi!
(Malabrigo Lace found a home in the basket; the Worsted is on one of the walls…)
One of my favorite things is working with other small operations to bring you cool stuff. Wool Tree Mill is a small company in Mckinleyville, CA, that makes beautiful wood knitting tools. The Wool Trees allow you to work from the outside of a ball of yarn, tangle free.
The lucets are tools dating from medieval times that allow you to quickly produce a strong cord similar to i-cord. I just started playing around with one, and after watching a few minutes of online video, it made perfect sense. Apparently there are multiple methods (including some beaded options)–I’m looking forward to exploring more when I have a little more time!
The Wool Trees are $44, and the Lucets are $18.50, and either would be a great gift!
