Happy New Year

Sonoma Country Yarn StoreHi there, I would like to wish you a very Happy, Healthy and Peaceful New Year. I also hope your holidays were wonderful. So many people I have heard have been sick. A lot of bugs out there, I hope you were spared.

If not I wish you a very speedy recovery. Let’s kick those bugs in the butt. Unfortunately, Trevor was pretty sick over Christmas and I managed to hold off until the New Year, I hope it is all behind us now though. I for one am ready to get healthy again and getting the show on the road.


Inventory & Many Thanks

I am afraid I am a little behind at the moment, I closed the store to do inventory on the 2nd but I should really have closed for two days, especially feeling as I did, however it is all done now and I don’t have to think about it for another year. Thank you to all of you that came in to give me a hand, I could not have done it without you. Now I hope it will be full speed ahead.


What Class Would You Like to Take?

Sonoma Country Yarn StoreI have had a lot of people enquiring about classes, I know I am a little behind with that too, but I promise I am working on it.  Unfortunately we have lost MaryAnne for a few months, she has gone back to her real job for the tax season. She has promised to come in and knit with us though when she can take a break from all of those numbers.

We have a sign-up sheet in the store where you can request classes you are interested in and when you are available to take said classes, so with a little time and planning we will soon have them up and running again.

Come in or let me know if there is something specific, you would like to see offered. Remember we keep our classes really small so it only takes a few of you to make a class if you are interested.


New Yarn Chases the Winter Blues Away

Sonoma County Knitting ClassesWell with inventory behind us, I will soon be back to writing about some of the great new yarns we have in the store.

So many people have been asking for yarn made without wool, for various reasons, so we have a wide selection of fantastic non-wool yarns in the store.

Cottons, Rayon, Viscose, Linen, Sugarcane, all sorts. Of course, we have lots of wool and Alpaca too and lots of blends. Really there is something for everyone.

Deep Discounts 75-85% OFF

With all that said, we are trying to streamline our suppliers so, we have some terrific bargains on yarn that we will no longer be carrying, some yarn is discounted up to 75% you had better check them out quickly though because once they are gone they are gone. I am also increasing the discount on many of the books we have, the discount on books will now be 80%. Can you believe it. I really want to update the book area but I can’t until I can make more room. The books are all good resources and a lot are timeless classic information.


Free Pattern–Outlander Cowl

Sonoma County Yarn RackThis a wonderful cowl pattern resembles the cowl that Claire wears in the Outlander series. This pattern is simple of enough for the most beginner knitter since it you only need to know how to do a knit stitch.

This is where your yarn choice will really make this accessory shine and it knits up in about 2 hours–fun, fast, and a great gift! This is worked on size 19 needles with 2 strands of bulky yarn, think Malabrgio or some of our other hand dyed yarns. Thank you ABC Knitting for this great pattern.

Have fun this is one of those knitting projects that you can really destress with since it takes no thinking. Here is the link to the ABC Knitting pattern:
