"Craft Your Path" WNC Yarn Crawl

Save the date! May 3rd-May 7th is the return of the Western North Carolina Yarn Crawl 2022. The Yarn Crawl has been cancelled the last two years due to Covid restrictions. It is back again for this year and we could not be more excited!

The theme for the Yarn Crawl is "Craft Your Path." Each of the 11 yarn shops in Western North Carolina have found their own path in supporting the fiber community during lockdowns and restrictions. We have all found creative ways to meet our customer's needs - developing online shopping sites, scheduling shopping appointments, door deliveries, pick-ups, Zoom classes .... the list goes on and on.

We are all excited to be back open and ready to help our customers craft their own path in any of the fiber arts.

Carol Martin and Charles Gandy have done it again!

They both have released new patterns on Ravelry this week.
Do you want to learn how to make socks, but don't have time to take a class? This pattern is just for you!
Carol has just released the sock pattern she uses to teach her Beginning Sock Class. This easy-to-follow pattern is perfect for any level of knitter, but especially helpful for beginning sock knitters. The pattern is called "The Best Basic Sock" and is available on Ravelry. Check out Carol's other designs on her Ravelry page.
Charles has released two new patterns in the last few weeks. The first one is his "Aha! Wrap" which takes three skeins of sock weight yarn. He used Practically Perfect Sock from Emma's Yarn for the sample shown. This beautiful rectangular wrap is perfect for our cool summer nights. It can also be worn as a scarf (as shown).
His second new pattern is the "Line By Line Shawl" which is a simple knit of garter ridges that uses one skein of Zauberball Crazy and one skein of any sock weight yarn. In the sample shown, he used one skein of Practically Perfect Sock yarn by Emma's Yarn.
You can find these two designs and many more by Charles Gandy on his Ravelry page.
