It's cozy crafting weather, and we kick it off with Socktoberfest! This festival of all things sock-shaped will start on Friday, October 1 with 10% off our sock yarns - Fiber Seed Sprout Sock, WYS Signature 4-Ply, WildStar Fibers, and Kelbourne Woolens Perennial - for the entire month of October. (Good in-person or through the online shop; use the code "Socktober21" to activate the discount.)
We also have special events and sock classes on the slate for this month - click the link in each bullet point to go to the details/registration page:
Basic Socks (Cuff-Down) class with Lindsey will happen in a three-session class on Saturdays, October 9 / 16 / 23 - learn to make a basic worsted-weight sock with a heel flap and gusset, starting at the top of the cuff and working down to the toe.
Basic Socks (Toe-Up) class with Lindsey will happen in a three-session class on Saturdays, October 30 / November 6 / November 13 - learn to make a basic DK-weight sock from the toe up with a heel flap and gusset, starting with Judy's Magic Cast-On.
Sock Mechanics class with Debbie Romero will happen in a three-session class on Sundays, October 10 / 24 and November 7 - if you've ever wanted to take a sock pattern and modify it to fit you better (or any recipient of your choice!), this is the class that will help you level up as a sock knitter.
We'll also be offering Sock-Adjacent Skills tutorials on Instagram Live on most Fridays in October. Picking up stitches, favorite sock patterns, increases/decreases and why you'd choose one over another... stay tuned for the full topic listing! These are free, but if you find them useful, you can always drop some money in the tip jar through Stilly River Yarns's Ko-Fi account.
Information for visiting the shop in person: Autumn 2021
Due to the apparent ease of transmission of the delta variant and our shop families having small children who cannot yet be vaccinated against COVID-19, we are going to be sticking with more conservative guidelines for the time being. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation!
Masks worn over your mouth and nose at all times are still required for in-shop shopping, as is washing your hands in the shop restroom before shopping, even if you are fully vaccinated.
Our current hours are from 10 AM - 4 PM on Tuesdays / Thursdays / Fridays, 10:15 AM - 4 PM on Wednesdays, and 9 AM - 3 PM PST on Saturdays.
We're now allowing up to 4 customers/households in the shop at any one time.
For the rainy season (October - March), we will be holding online-only social events: Zoom-Baaa will be held each Monday evening at 8:30 PM PST, and Instagram Live will be held on occasional Fridays at 8:30 PM PST. All large group classes will be held via Zoom, but we will be able to do one-on-one lessons in-person. Please call or email the shop for details.
