Thank you to everyone who came out this Saturday for the Utah Yarn crawl. It was a fun and busy day! If you are participating in the yarn crawl and didn’t make it in on Saturday, you have five more shopping days until Saturday, July 15th when the crawl officially ends. If you are not joining the yarn crawl, please don’t hesitate to stop by. We have kits as well as Rowan and Woolfolk trunk shows for everyone to enjoy.
Many of you have asked about our grand prize. After visiting all 9 shops and dropping off your complete passport, you will be entered to win the Wasatch and Wool grand prize which is 5 skeins of Blue Sky Fibers Printed Organic Cotton in Sweet Pea, patterns to make either the Seven Sisters Top by Sloane Gillam Lacasse or the Tulsa Tank by J.H. Walter which use Printed Organic Cotton, an Atenti Mamallama Bonita clutch/accessories keeper, and a Dream in Color Smooshy sock kit all packaged in a Blue Sky Fibers project bag.
We are also holding a second raffle that all Wasatch and Wool customers can enter. It is for the Mode 001 Wrap kit which comes with 16 balls of Rowan Alpaca Classic, eight are in the colorway Coastal Melange and eight are in Eclipse.
To make Alpaca Classic, Rowan's Italian mill blows soft alpaca fibers into a delicate cotton core to create an airy DK yarn that is wonderful to knit or crochet. If you are more of a sweater knitter than a wrap knitter, you should have more than enough yarn to knit both Midori Hirose’s Ranunculus which on average takes 6 balls of Alpaca Classic and PetiteKnit’s No Frills Sweater which on average takes 8 balls of Alpaca Classic.
We are featuring three kits that use other PetiteKnit patterns. These are the Sophie Scarf with Cardiff Cashmere Classic and Lang Yarns Cashmere Premium, the Sophie Shawl with Knitting for Olive Merino and Soft Silk Mohair, and Anker’s Summer Shirt with Sandnes Garn Line.
Wednesday mornings at 10am.
Our next Wednesday Summer Morning Knitting and Crocheting is coming up tomorrow. We had a really nice time this past Wednesday, and I loved the projects everyone was working on.. These include Liz’s Lola Top, Amy’s Wintry Hat, and Angela’s Giselle.
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.
Note: Summer Morning Knitting and Crocheting will replace Knit Nights this summer.
Do you need a quick refresher on how to do a Slip Slip Knit (SSK) or a Left-Slanting Make 1 (M1L)? Do you want someone to look over your project every now and then to see how you are progressing, or even some structured time to complete a project that has been on your needles for much too long? Our new help sessions may be exactly what you are looking for. Our next help session will be Tuesday July 18th from 9:30-11am and will cost $15. This is a great opportunity to ask the 5 minute (or less) question. Please email or call us to reserve your spot.
If you need more in-depth help, such as learning to knit or needing us to read through an entire multi-page pattern, you will want to take advantage of private lessons that are now being taught at the store. Classes are $20 per half hour and $35 for a full hour. Please ask us for more information and to schedule a time for you to meet with one of our instructors.
