Local Yarn Store Day (Week!) 2024

Local Yarn Store Day is Saturday, April 27th, but we have so much going on at the store, we decided to celebrate it the entire week!

Starting Tuesday, April 23rd, our sale room, which is 30% off will become 40% off! In addition, some of our yarn suppliers are giving us coupons which you can use to download a pattern for free with the purchase of their yarn. And finally, we are giving away two addiMultibag organizers to two lucky in-store or online customers!

Local Yarn Store Day is the day to celebrate the heart of the fiber-crafting community, the local yarn store! It is also the day that we appreciate all our wonderful customers that help make us a special place to be a part of.  
The Woolfolk Design Team designed a special hat for Local Yarn Store Day 2024. Sellwood is a gorgeous cable hat that uses two skeins of Woolfolk Tynd held together. Sellwood is an $8 pattern, but with a purchase of Tynd, we will give you a coupon so that you can download it for free. 

Tynd is an incredibly soft 100% Merino wool, fingering weight yarn. The color in the photo is #41, and we are offering kits in this colorway.
Malabrigo is also supporting Local Yarn Stores by offering 3 adorable cowl patterns which are free with the purchase of the yarn only through your local yarn store for Local Yarn Store Day 2024. 

The first is Langham by Jacob Seifert. Jacob uses short rows to create the garter stitch ovals that wave their way across this striped cowl. It was designed for Malabrigo fingering weight yarn including Mechita and Ultimate Sock.

Tori will be teaching a Langham class in May so this is a great time to get the yarn and pattern!
Arrow Cowl by Mia Rinde was designed for Malabrigo worsted weight yarns including Rios and Washted. This cowl uses slipped stitches to create a lovely two-color mosaic.
River by Knox Mountain Knit Co. uses 3 skeins of Rasta to create this spectacular, quick to knit, super-bulky cowl.

The coupons for these projects are valid only from April 27th to April 29th so don’t forget to download them then!
Blue Sky Fibers is also celebrating LYS Day by giving local yarn shop customers who purchase Blue Sky Fibers yarn a free download code that can be used on Ravelry or their own website to purchase one of their patterns.

Two pattern options are shown above: Seven Sisters Top by Sloane Lacasse and Tulsa Tank by J. H. Walter. Both these elegant and timeless patterns use Blue Sky Fibers Printed Organic CottonSeven Sisters Top is knit in the round from the bottom up. Tulsa Tank is knit flat and seamed. Liz knit us a beautiful store sample last year so please stop by to take a look or try it on.
I also love this cowl by Nancy Ekvall. Lulu Cowl is knit using 3 skeins of Woolstok Tweed. This warm, textured and squishable cowl is a great project for an advanced beginner knitter and would be a wonderful holiday gift.
For every $35 you spend either in-person or online, you will be entered into two drawings for an addiMultibag cotton canvas roll-up. This sturdy organizer is comprised of four pockets where you can store your circular knitting needles, crochet hooks, gauges, scissors, tape measure, and stitch markers. The addiMultibag not only helps you stay organized; the four pockets are easy to separate allowing you to travel with just the tools you need.
Upcoming Classes:
Toe-Up Sock Class
Saturdays, April 27May 4, May 18 from 9-11am.
$60 plus supplies*

Tori has designed a sock pattern especially for teaching toe-up socks. In her class students learn Judy’s Magic Cast-on, how to make simple pattern modifications for the instep/leg of the sock, how to knit a sock with a heel flap (eye of partridge), and good stretchy bind-offs for socks. She will also cover how to close the pesky ‘holes’ that often plague knitters where the heel meets the leg of the sock!

This class uses fingering weight yarn and is a good prerequisite for a two-at-a-time sock class that Tori will teach later this year.

One of the yarns that I recommend for the class is Ultimate Sock by Malabrigo. It is shown in the photo above, but the pattern is Normandy by Anne Jones. If you already knit socks, you will be happy to know that this adorable sock is a free pattern on Ravelry.
The Shift by Andrea Mowry – Slipped Stitches Class
Tuesdays, April 23 and May 7 from 6:30-8:30pm.
$40 plus supplies*

Knitters use slipped stitches to create unique patterns and textures. You can find them in almost any type of project you can think of, shawls, hats, sweaters, blankets, and even socks. The Shift by Andrea Mowry is one of the patterns that jump-started knitters' love of this stitch.

In this class Tori will teach how to do mosaic colorwork (slipped stitches). She will also cover color theory and the mattress stitch which is used to seam the project at the end.

 **The fine print on classes:

*Yarn needs to be purchased from Wasatch and Wool or there will be an additional $35 class fee. Class participants will receive a 10% discount on non-sale supplies. They will also receive the 10% discount on the final day of class for future knitting projects. We recommend that needles are purchased from Wasatch and Wool as there are significant differences between needle brands.

*Classes, if canceled 10 days before the first day of class, can be exchanged for a future class with the same instructor only. We enforce this policy on behalf of our teachers who have committed their time and expertise. There are no exchanges or refunds for classes canceled less than 10 days from the first day of class.

Help Sessions with Susan

Wednesdays and Fridays from 11am-2pm. 

Help sessions are free if your yarn was purchased from Wasatch and Wool. Otherwise, there is a $25 fee per session.


Please join us Wednesday mornings for our Sit and Stitch at 10am and our new Prosecco and Purls, the first Tuesday of the month from 5-7pm.

There is no charge to join us, but we request that you use yarn purchased from Wasatch and Wool Yarns.

We love when visitors drop by for our knitting get-togethers. If you are working on a project from home. let us help you find a souvenir that you can bring back from your trip to Park City.

Happy Knitting and Crocheting,
