Welcome Woolstok North! The brand new yarn from Blue Sky Fibers

Woolstok North, the brand-new yarn from Blue Sky Fibers, is launching September 1st, and Wasatch and Wool is fully stocked and ready to show off this gorgeous yarn!

Woolstok North is a single-ply, super bulky weight yarn which is wonderfully soft, light and lofty. Woolstok North is made from 100% Fine Highland Wool, the same as Woolstok Worsted, and comes in a palette of 12 rich colors you will also know from Woolstok Worsted.

These versatile 150gram/170yard hanks are perfect for large needle projects ranging from bulky hats to colorwork sweaters. This yarn is an excellent choice for quick (last minute?) gift projects.  
One project idea is the Winnipeg Hat by Bobbi Intveld. This unisex hat is perfect for cold and snowy Utah days. It takes only one skein of Woolstok North to make this fun hat with earflaps and a big pom.
If you would like to try out 3 different colors of Woolstok North, the unisex Fletcher Cowl designed by Michael Vloedman, is a fun project and another quick knit given the size 17 needles. Its trapezoid shape provides many styling options.
If you are looking for a wonderfully warm sweater perfect for a chilly day, the Swansboro Sweater is a great choice. Pick out your 3 favorite colors and cast-on using size 13 and then knit on size 15 needles. Designed by Mary Pranica, this will be a fast sweater to knit using Woolstok North.

September Class reminder:

Learn to Knit Class with Margaux:

(Only one spot left.)
Novice Level class. No prior knitting experience is required.

Mondays, September 11th and 25th from 11am-12:30pm 
Knitting is an enjoyable, social, and mentally enriching hobby. Plus, you get to wear or gift the results of your effort when you finish a project. Yarn comes in a gorgeous assortment of different colors and fibers, and as you knit, you get to create many types of textures. Who wouldn’t want to cast-on and give knitting a try!

The project we make in my learn to knit class is a cowl where we repeat stitches to create mastery and muscle memory. After nine years of teaching, I have found this to be the most successful way to learn to knit.

Skills covered in the class are the knit stitch, the purl stitch, long-tail cast-on, knitting in the round, reading a pattern, reading your knitting, picking up dropped stitches, binding-off, weaving in ends, finishing, and a general understanding of yarn and gauge.

*Yarn needed for the class is 3 skeins of Alpakka Ull from Sandnes Garn or 2 skeins of Ultra-Alpaca from Berroco, a US #8 24inch circular needle, and a size G (4mm) crochet hook.

Musselburgh by Ysolda Teague Hat Class

Intermediate Level Class - Students should feel comfortable knitting, purling, and reading a written pattern and have successfully knit a project using magic loop before taking this class. 

Thursdays from 9:30-11am September 14th and 28th.


Musselburgh from Ysolda Teague is the most popular project on Ravelry. What makes Musselburgh fun is that it is knit from the top down which is unusual for a hat. It can be knit in one color or two if you want your brim to be a different color, or as the hat is reversible, you can make it two different colors. Make the hat for yourself or as a gift for someone special.

Skills taught in this class will be: a review of the Magic-Loop kntting in the round technique; the Pinhole Cast-On; the make-one left (M1L) and make-one right (M1R), and how to modify your hat so that you can have a different colored brim, or have the hat be reversible in a different color. We will also review measuring gauge.

*Yarn needed in this class is a total of 100-150 grams of fingering, sport or dk wool yarn in one or two colors, two sets of needles one 16” circular and one 32” circular in the appropriate size for your yarn and stitch markers.

Please note that for all classes:

*Yarn needs to be purchased from Wasatch and Wool Yarns, but class participants will receive a 10% discount on non-sale supplies. They will also receive a 10% discount on the final day of class. We recommend that needles are purchased from Wasatch and Wool as there are significant differences between needle brands.

*Classes, if cancelled 10 days before the first day of class, can be exchanged for a future class 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 cancelled less than 10 days from the first day of class. Participants not using yarn from Wasatch and Wool will be charged an additional $30.

Help Sessions:

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, September 12th 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.
Wednesday Morning Knitting and Crocheting:
Wednesday mornings at 10am.

Knitters and crocheters of all levels are welcome at our Wednesday morning sit and knits. There is no charge, 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,
