Yorkshire Yarns is now on line!

There's LOTS going on at Yorkie Yarns. I'll try and make it short & sweet....like me. Well...short anyway.




Yorkshire Yarns is now on line! We've only just begun and have quite a ways to go to get all our products on the site. Go have a look around and see what we're doing. You can even register a personal account while you're there. No bank card information is collected and never will be. When you go back and shop the convenience fast, online shopping will be yours!




Mark your calendars for the 2009 South Sound Yarn Crawl on April 15th-17th ! We've included 2 new shops and this year we'll have 3 winners. :-) And you must check out the participating Bed & Breakfast Inn's. The Thornewood Castle & Inn in Lakewood is my favorite. Wowza!







Our April class schedule is up. There are classes for beginning knitting, crochet, socks and entralac knitting. Check out our Google Calendar for more details. 



Our project of the month is quite worthy. Be part of Operation Gator and knit a gator for a soldier



Y'all know I love gadgets & gizmos. Right?

I've got some new ones!

When I first saw the Knit Kit I thought, "Whoa. Isn't that a cute little miniature toilet seat."  I took a closer look and this is what I saw. I'll have these in the store on Monday. Pretty cool, huh?





Also, we just got a shipment of measuring pens. It's an ink pen w/a built-in tape measurer. Slick.



Cat Borhdi will be teaching two all-day workshops YY on July 11th & 12th . She's teaching her ever popular sock class & mobius style. We're hoping her brand new sock book will be out in time as well! Each workshop will be 6 hours. The cost for one workshop is $85 .

Class sizes will be limited due to her enormous popularity.  You snooze....well. :-) Call for details and sign up today!







July 22nd marks the first Tacoma Rainiers Stitch N Pitch event for the south sound! The yarnie get together will be held on a private party deck with an all you can eat & drink buffet. And check this out. Fifteen...count 'em...FIFTEEN yarn shops will be "on deck" with lots of goodies to sell. Here's the best part. Yorkshire Yarns is hosting "French Girl Knit's" author, Kristeen Griffin-Grimes. She'll be in our booth for a meet & greet. There will be plenty of her new books on hand for autographs too!







I told ya there was a lot going on. :-) Ya'll have a great week.

Figheadh makes a rare appearance at YY this Saturday!


Cableology 1 with designer, Jennifer Hagan this Saturday!



We are SO fortunate to have a national designer residing right here in our area.
Figheadh Designs is getting so popular we feel honored to have a slice of her time this
Saturday for teaching at Yorkshire Yarns.

March 14th from 10:30-1:30, learn Cableology I. This is a Basic Cables class.
You'll take cable knitting from the ground up, learning cabling with knit stitches.
You'll have 4 coveted hours with the master/mistress of cables.
You won't believe how fun, involved and easy cables can be.

Visit our
google calendar for details.
Receive 10% all your class supplies when you register.


That's all for me! Have a great week, Yorkie Yarners.

Hazel Knits/Wendee Trunk Show this Saturday, March 7th!




And if you snooze...well, you know the rest.





Wendee and her luscious trunk show will be at Yorkshire Yarns from 11-1pm this Saturday, March 7th.
Come meet the master of color and see some her newest creations. Rumor has it, she's bringing a few rouges too!
You've heard it said, "Get there early for the best selection. blah...blah...blah..." I'm not kidding.

Check it out. Last night for the "JOE" fashion show, at last count there were at least 56.
I tooooooooold you to get there early. So trust me about Saturday. It'll be worth it to you. :-)







This Sunday, March 8th from 1-3pm is the Mosaic/slip-stitch class w/designer, Lisa Ellis.
(She's the creator of that really popular bulky, weekend project vest we have in the store.)
Anyhoo, Mosaic/slip-stitch is the simplest way to work in color -knitting with only 1 color at a time while
the other colors are stranded at the beginning of the row.
Slip Stitch knitting takes less yarn, doesn't pucker like fair isle and is just as strong and durable as the linen stitch.

Check out the hat on the cutie pahtootie. And it's soooooooooo easy to make! Class cost is $35 plus supplies. You'll get 10% off all your supplies when you register. Visit our Google calendar for details.



That's all for now! Have a blessed week.
