June News :-)

June is officially
SOCK Month at
Yorkshire Yarns!

Now is your opportunity to finally learn how to make socks or improve your sock skills. This month the majority of our classes will focus on socks, socks, socks! And socks are a wonderfully small, travel project for the summer months ahead. So let's just get to it.

This Friday, June 6th at 3:30pm-5:30 we
kick-off SOCK Month with sock yarn KOOL AID dying. This class is for adults only. We'll have a kids KOOL AID clinic later in the month. The cost is $25 plus materials.

Then on Saturday, June 7th & June 14th you can take a beginner's 2-hour/2-part sock class either at 10:30am or 1:00pm w/double point needles or at 1:30-3:30 w/the magic loop technique (one sock on one circular needle).

Also in June we have classes for
  • 2 socks on ONE circular
  • Toe-up socks
  • SOTM Club
  • Kids KOOL AID dying
Yarn of the Month:
Noro Kureyon Sock yarn
Receive 17% off the entire month!

We've got 18 delicious colors in stock.

Gadget, Book/Pattern of the Month:
The Universal Knit Gauge is a counter which can be hung right off your circular cable!

The "Little Box of Socks" is a book of individual card
s with 20 different, creative sock patterns. A magnetic strip closure keeps the cards nice & neat inside the box and easy for on the go knitting.

July 1st marks YY’s Sock Battle! Sign-up during the month of June. Registration fee if $2.50. The last day for signups is June 30th! Join in the battle and kill or be killed, sockers. :-)

Now for some Tidbits.

  • Did you know June 14th is World Wide Knit In Public Day? (WWKIP) We plan to celebrate by having a big ole BBQ with knitters & crocheters, families & kids! Stay tuned for details.
  • Need to stay on a yarn junkie budget? We now have "Yarn Diet" cards! The cards are kind of like Starbucks cards in that they are refillable and can double as gift cards. The best part is the cards will speed up your shopping. We just swipe it and you go! You can purchase the YY yarn diet cards in any demonination. Yeah, baby!
  • I have a block of 30 tickets for sale for Stitch N Pitch August 7th w/the Mariners!
  • On Saturday, June 21st, Yorkshire Yarns welcomes sock yarn & dying guru, Wendee of HAZEL KNITS!
    And we’ll have the Hazel Knits Trunk Show for several days. Come visit w/Wendee and see the new colors she’s created for fall. Festivities begin at 11am.
