Yorkie Yarns MARCH Calendar

Author/designer Chrissy Gardiner's 2 sox at a time

This Saturday, March 6th from 4-8pm

advanced beginner- must have some experience knitting socks

"Two At A Time Toe-Up Socks"
6 spots left!
  • Wouldn't you love to be able to try on your socks as you go and make sure they will fit?
  • What about eliminating the dreaded Kitchener graft at the end?
  • And what about NOT having to worry about running out of yarn to complete your sox?

**How about learning this technique from someone who wrote the book on it? ...literally.**
Well now. Need I say more?

Join us for Yorkshire Yarns 1st
Knitting/Crochet Retreat March

Come hang out w/the ladies of YY and knit, chat, paint your toe nails, swap girly stories and in the morning “we’re making waffles!” - Donkey

On March 26-28 our retreat will be held at the Gwinwood Christian Retreat Center in Lacey.

There are only 40 spots available. The cost is $115.00. Your reservation includes dinner on Friday, breakfast & dinner on Saturday and then breakfast on Sunday morning. After that the weekend slumber party is over and we aaaaaall head back to reality. :-)

Each room houses 4 people so get your buddies together and come have some fun!

Plan for a festive, relaxing atmosphere while we lounge in comfortable surroundings. Saturday we plan to hit a couple yarn shops in the area and maybe even the outlet mall down the road. Just be open to just about anything and bring your projects and a good attitude and I'll guarantee you'll have a GREAT time.

Call the shop for more details.

Gear-up for the 2010 SSYC!

Mark your calendars for the annual
South Sound Yarn Crawl May 14, 15 & 16.
And guess what.
This year the crawl is not on the same weekend as the northern crawl!
Eight gorrrrrrrrgeous south sound shops are planning 3 days of fun, fiber and serious prizes.
And listen.
I don't plan on being in the parking lot this year. :-)
Do yourself a favor and join the SSYC Rav group to keep up on all the latest.
