FINALLY! Noro Sock yarn is in at Yorkie Yarns!

Folks, it's trickling in but I finally got a shipment of Noro Kureyon Sock Yarn. The colors are to DIE for.

Noro is known for their long, vibrant color way and once again, they didn't let us down. Now, you don't have to knit just sox with this magnificent stuff. I've seen sweaters, fingerless gloves, hats and a few more things on Ravelry knitted out of this yarn.

(What!? You're not familiar with Ravelry? Go check it out.)

Anyway, Kureyon is getting rave reviews! Come see! Come see!

Sock of the Month Club (SOTM)

Wow! What a group of great sock knitters! Monday night the SOTM Club met and were stretched outside socky comfort zones. Our instructor, Liz, knows how to encourage sock knitters to relax and create. The club is a great venue for grasping new & unique ideas. AND they have wonderful time.

This group is growing fast.
The SOTM Club meets every 3rd Monday at 6pm at Yorkshire Yarns. So call or come by & reserve your spot for next month. The cost is $35 & includes yarn, a pattern & instruction. After 12 times attending you'll receive a free skein of selected yarn.

***Next month (February) Liz will teach the technique for toe-up socks.***
