KISS-Keep It Simple, Silly

"Knitting Is the Simple Solution"
Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

Yes. Tis the season of love, happiness, kindness and of course more yarn. So fellaz, if you're reading this and wondering, "Gee. What would my honey dumplings like for Valentine's Day?" Let me help you out. May I suggest a lovely bouquet of flowers with a sappy card? How about placing a gift certificate inside that card from Yorkshire Yarns? Let's face it. The points you earned at Christmas may be wearing thin about right now. It's time to earn some chocolate brownie points.

Would you like another suggestion? How about surprising your honey buns with a Chinese dinner? And right when s/he is ready to dig in hand him/her a set of bamboo knitting needles instead of chopsticks. And then BAM! Slap a lovey dovey card down on the table with a YY gift certificate inside. Works every time. Remember, every kiss begins with (k)nit. Look. These wonderful suggestions are guaranteed to hold you over at least until St. Patty's Day. (Wait till you see what we have up our sleeves then. *smirk*)

~~Now for this week's news and events at Yorkie Yarns~~

**This Saturday, February 16th at 10:30 is beginning knitting & Magic Loop socks (part 1) is at 1:00. For more details about these classes please view our calendar.
**Monday, Feb. 18th is SOTM Club at 6:00PM. This month clubbers will learn to do a toe-up sock.
**Remember next Saturday night (Feb. 23rd) is movie night from 5-7:30pm. Apparently, y'all trust me to select the movie because I've gotten such little feedback on suggestions. I was thinking maybe "War & Peace" or "My Dinner With Andre". Yeah. That should get the crowd goin'. :-)
**Join us for our free twining clinic. Designer Lisa Ellis will be in our store on Sunday, February 24th at 1:00pm to demonstrate the long lost art of two-end knitting or twining. Again, it's free however registration is required.

**BIG NEWS! We're offering beginning drop spindal spinning classes every Sunday in March! (We'll begin Sunday, March 2nd at 1:00. We're skipping March 23rd to celebrate Easter.) Y'all remember Eve Gallagher of Fair Meadow Farms? She and her lovely daughter brought out the two adorable alpacas during our grand opening. Anyway, they'll be teaching the progressive classes. You can jump in on any given Sunday but Eva plans to teach beginning techniques during week one and progress from there. The cost is $15 per class plus supplies. Space is limited. I'll have kits available with spindals and fleece for $20. This is going to be GREAT! For more information & class supplies list please view our calendar.

That's it for now, folks. Maybe I'll see some of you at the Madrona Fiber Festival this weekend. God bless and have a great week!
