Jilly with Silk!

Dream in Color Yarn gave us Jilly, then Jilly with Cashmere, now Jilly with Silk. These colorways are limited edition, and they are full of speckly fun.  
ALSO: Grocery Outlet in Ellensburg had four sets of interlocking foam floor mats as of this morning–looked like 4 2’x2′ squares for $10. I love that big size for blocking, but they are generally sold as floor cushioning and aren’t available through my supply chain. They were up front between checkout #1 and the houseplants!

Pattern repeats for the Primer in Lace Cowl add techniques gradually. There’s room in the class if you’d like to learn more about making holes in your knitting on purpose! We’ll cover using charts, “reading” your knitting, using markers, and lifelines. Wednesdays, January 6th & 13th, 5-7 pm, $20 + materials.

Holiday hours, part II

Thank you for a wonderful year! Today (New Year’s Eve)(and tomorrow, New Year’s Day) Yarn Folk will be open until 5 pm. Tomorrow, join us for the informal “Start As You Wish to Continue” KAL/CAL from 12-5–bring or start a project that represents something you’d like your stitching to embody in 2016. Whether it’s finishing something that has languished, beginning something exciting and new, or trying a new technique, January 1st is a time for stitching with intention!
