The Artful Yarn

. . . . where every skein tells a story

The Artful Yarn makes a point of featuring yarns from companies owned by women or families, many of them from the United States. We support fair-wage, fair-trade companies as much as possible too. Most of our beautiful yarn offerings are handcrafted in some way – whether hand-spun, hand-dyed, or hand-painted from US domestic-sourced fibers where possible. We embrace an organic, recycled or minimally-processed approach as well.

 

Blissful ShawlIt’s a very special moment when a pattern designer offers to teach a class for one of their pieces. And it’s not often when you have the opportunity to participate in a class with the designer. The Artful Yarn is thrilled to be able to provide you this unique experience! Rose Beck will offer a two-session class for Blissful, one of her signature shawls.

Blissful is an asymmetrical stockinette shawl graced by elegant columns of leaves, representing the beauty and joy brought to our lives by the simple everyday. The shawl is worked with a slight bias from one tip to one longside edge, with the wingspan being the right edge of the work. This construction allows you to keep knitting until your desired size. The shawl is very customizable and will work with almost any yarn by adjusting yardage and needle size. Seating is limited to 10 students and registrations are already being accepted.  This two-session class will be held Saturdays, March 7 & 21, 1:30 – 3:30 PM. $40/person and Rose is giving you a copy of her pattern. You’ll also receive 10% off yarn and other materials purchased for this class. Call or email the shop to register! Learn more about Rose Beck here.
