Malabrigo incoming

Pattern idea for variegated yarns

This is a design that would work really well with the variegation of the Dream In Color Jilly with Cashmere, and it looks like it would be a rhythmic and relaxing knit.

Country Song Shawl

Last Day for Kittitas County Fair Entry is August 14th!

I was poking around the Internet, reading about the history of county (and state fairs), and enjoyed this photo essay from Time. Kittitas County Fair superintendents for needlework will be on hand during Open Stitching tonight to answer any questions or help you register. You can enter items made within the last two years. It’s so inspiring to see other people’s work–but that’s only possible if we all participate in this great community event! Deadline for entry is Friday, August 14th, items are delivered just prior to the Fair, and there is no penalty for changing your mind!

(Mark, aka Mr. Yarn Folk, worked for awhile painting carnival ride backgrounds when he was younger, so we always look for the ones from Scenic Designs when we are on a midway. This one was at the Kittitas County Fairgrounds, and it’s one he worked on, though it’s been repainted since then.)

Still time to join the Baby Sweater KAL!

We’re on week 2 of the Intarsia Baby Sweater Knitalong.  The Rabbit Crew Neck is a really cute pattern from Roo Designs.  The basic construction is simple, and the back and sleeves are plain, so there is still time to hop on board!  5-7pm tonight, no charge when materials are purchased at Yarn Folk. Join us!

Wild Cherry

This is a pattern that just keeps catching my eye. I can imagine it in Yarn Hollow Tor DK, or Mrs. Crosby Loves to Play Hat Box, or Baah Yarns Aspen, or Malabrigo Arroyo…
