Yarning For You – A Special Place For Knitting
  • July3rd


    Saturday July 26 for THE CustomFit KICK OFF

    Aug 2, 9, & 16 for the CustomFit Sweater Class

    How often have you wanted to knit a sweater but hesitated because________ (insert your reason why here)? Guess what? There’s a brand new way to knit the sweater you want and have it fit and YfY is on enthusiastically on-board. No more hesitations…let’s knit a CustomFit sweater!

    CustomFit builds a pattern that fits YOU beautifully from hem to neck and everywhere in between.

    CustomFit makes custom patterns for hand-knit sweaters. It takes your choices your body and your hand-knit fabric and produces a pattern perfectly suited to you. Design and fit expertise are built-in so you get to make all the fun choices (“I want a long-sleeved scoop-neck!”), without worrying about the difficult choices (“How much ease do I need in my waist?”).

    It works like this: we take your measurements; you knit a swatch and choose your sweater elements (style, neckline, sleeve length, edgings, etc.). We put that information into our special CustomFit account and a pattern is created that is perfect for you…ta da! Your measurements are then saved forever so your second next sweater will be even easier.

    At YfY, our staff has been trained in CustomFit and we are ready to help you knit a sweater that you choose and that will fit you perfectly.

    The Kickoff …Save the dates May 10 and May 24, 2014
    Workshop

    Beginning this May, you are welcome to join us in knitting The Great American Afghan. Create a priceless heirloom by knitting squares of a variety of textures and designs using the book Great American Afghan by Knitter’s Magazine.

    Build your skills one square at a time! This is a great opportunity for first-time afghan knitters for those of you who want to learn new stitches and techniques or to just accomplish a beautiful sampler of your knitting skills.* Best of all, the prize at the finish will be a cozy afghan to use or to gift…or perhaps it will become the family treasure.

    Once a month, Yarning for You will hold a two-hour workshop – the goal is to knit one square each month. In total the afghan has 20 squares and will be approximately 50” x 68”. Nine squares will make a baby blanket size. The workshop also includes learning how to block and sew the squares together to create the afghan.

    The Great American Afghan Workshop is ongoing. This means that anyone can join in at anytime. There will be a chart showing which square is scheduled each month.

    Kickoff the adventure! Saturday, May 10, 10 a.m. to 1 p. m.

    Come to our yarn color selection party where you will order and purchase your yarn. Choose from over 100 gorgeous colors of Cascade 220 Superwash. Also, be sure to pre-register for the workshops.
