As many of you may know, we are happy to host our True North Yarn Social on Thursdays – it’s a free drop-in, perfect for advice or just hanging out with fellow yarn lovers while you work on your projects! This fall, the time of the social alternates every other week so that there are opportunities both during the day and in the evening, to suit your schedule.
Thursdays 1 – 3PM
September 10th & 24th
October 8th & 22nd
November 12th & 26th
December 3rd, 10th & 17th
Thursdays 6 – 8PM
October 1st & 15th
November 5th & 19th
The last week before Christmas we have a yarn social at both 1pm and 6pm on the Thursday (the 17th), as well as an Emergency Yarn Social on Saturday December 19th from 1 – 3PM – plenty of time all week for anyone seeking last minute support, or even if you just need a space to finish off top secret projects away from the prying eyes of your friends/family! All socials this week will feature both a knitter and crocheter on hand for project help.
Here is a PDF copy of the Yarn Social schedule, if you would like a copy to stick on your fridge or print off for a friend!
And speaking of PDF copies of schedules, here is a PDF of the entire Fall Class Calendar – it is two pages, and includes all of the knit and crochet classes + yarn social dates.
And now for this week’s yarn news…
A new chunky yarn from Stylecraft – Alpaca Chunky! 20% Alpaca, 80% Acrylic with 147yds to every 100g, this is sure to be a new favourite for anyone looking for a soft, quick project as the weather gets chillier.
A new line from Malabrigo – Mechita! The baby brother of Malabrigo’s chunky Mecha, Mechita is 100g/420yds of 100% Merino Superwash in a ridiculously soft single ply, which we have in six dreamy colours!
Four new colours in Debbie Bliss Fine Donegal – a fingering weight merino with 5% cashmere – I can not overstate my love for this tweed, and now that they have that lovely grey I might not be able to resist my autumn tweed scarf dreams!
With summer fast disappearing, Sandnesgarn Duo & Mini Duett have been added to our sale section – a blend of merino and cotton, they’re going to disappear quick!
