Yorkshire Yarns WWKIP BBQ this Saturday!

World Wide Knit In Public Day is this Saturday, June 14th.
To celebrate Yorkie Yarns is having a BBQ!

Join us at Harry Todd Park when the "picknitting" & BBQ begins at 3:30pm this Saturday, June 14th. Bring the kids, neighbors, frenemies, postal worker and your favorite barista.
Well, the barista is optional.
What's not optional is your food. :-) Bring your favorite meat, chicken or seafood to grill and a side dish or two for your group. I'll provide the drinks, dishes and music. (No. I'm not singing. There's nothing like a good old fashioned boom box.) Oh! Don't forget your knitting and crochet! Please RSVP me so I can know how much Kool Aid to bring.
And if it rains, fahgettahboutit.


Folks, as we continue SOCK Month at YY let us remember that this Friday, June 13th & 20th begins our 2-part class for knitting 2 sox on ONE circular knitting. This is a great class for those of us who have SSS (second sock syndrome). By knitting two socks at a time when you're done you're DONE. Sign up and receive 10% off all your class supplies.
As usual, space is limited so if ya snooze....



Yesterday was Heather's 12th birthday. (Heather is our tweener.) She took advantage of her 20% birthday discount at Yorkshire Yarns. Say what? YOU have a June birthday as well? No problem.
