What's new at Yorkshire Yarns?

We just recieved 26 new colors from Hazel Knits in sock and DK weights! And be sure to make a date to come to YY on March 7th from 11-1pm to meet & greet designer Wendee Wienker of HZ. AND she'll be introducing at least 3 new colors. Be one of the 1st to get your hands on these babies! You know the deal w/Wendee's covented yarn. If you snooze....



Hey. I finally found some project holders that DON'T require you to cut your yarn if you want to change-out your unfinished project. Yesssss.... They come in pink to support breast cancer support. And they're available in clear.



I want to thank all of you have given me assistance when trying to read those tiny numbers on the Addi circular needles. I've decided to wear my glasses every day. But as the eyes go so does the memory. On the days I forget to wear my bifocals I take advantage of our new circular needle ID tags. These are awesome and only $2.50!



We have the new winter Vogue Knitting Magazine, Barbara Walker's 1st - 4th Treasury of Knitting series, and the popular "Knit Kimono" by Vicki Square



Beginning Thursday Yorkshire Yarns will host the "She Knits Felted Bag" Trunk Show. "Some moderns. Some retro. Some Funky. All fresh."
