Worldwide Knit in Public Day

Worldwide Knit in Public Day

Saturday, June 8, 10:00 am – 12:00 pm Northfield Public Library, 210 Washington Street

Outside on the terrace overlooking Division Street (in case of inclement weather, event will be held in the library atrium)

Join Northfield Yarn as we observe Worldwide Knit in Public Day by gathering at the Northfield Public Library to knit or crochet! Our regular Saturday morning stitching circle will move from our shop across the street to the library, where we will have coffee and bagels available. The library will have a special display of knitting and crochet books and magazines available for browsing and checkout. All welcome!

Knitted Wit National Parks Yarn!

As a special treat in addition to June’s Club colors, we’ve brought in the Knitted Wit National Parks Yarn Trunk Show, featuring all their previous National Parks Yarns! Limited quantities so get them while you can!!!

Every month from May – August, we’ll have four gorgeous new National Parks sock yarns in the shop; our June yarns are Rocky Mountains, Virgin Islands, Death Valley, and Capitol Reef.

Check out our previous blog post to read up on how we’ve partnered with Knitted Wit and Shannon Squire on their National Parks Collector’s Yarn and #socksonvacay KAL!

Berroco’s Marsh Mallow Knit-Along

Northfield Yarn is participating in Berroco’s Marsh Mallow Knit-Along, featuring two free sweater patterns perfect for spring. The KAL runs from May 1 – June 30. Stop in the shop to get a copy of the patterns and help selecting yarns, and join us every Saturday in May and June from 10 am – noon to work on our sweaters together.

Everyone who finishes a sweater using yarns purchased at Northfield Yarn by the June 30 deadline will get a prize (including a free Berroco pattern booklet and other goodies) and an entry into the raffle for our grand prize — a sweater’s quantity of Berroco Remix yarn and a tote bag!

Summer Stitch Club & KAL for 2019!

2019 Summer Stitch Club

Northfield Yarn’s Summer Stitch Club runs from June 3 – August 26. We meet weekly on Mondays from 5 – 7 pm at the Contented Cow (we’ll be outside on the patio, weather permitting!). 

As always, Summer Stitch Club participants receive a club card and get one stamp for every night they attend. Every three stamps gets you $3 off a purchase of $35 or more at Northfield Yarn, with a maximum discount of $12. 

This year, we’re partnering with Knitted Wit hand-dyed yarns for a special, National Parks-inspired #socksonvacay knitalong!

National Parks Collector’s Club

Northfield Yarn will receive four new colorways of Knitted Wit National Parks-inspired fingering weight yarns every month from May – August. If you purchase any of these yarns, you will receive a postcard and a stamp from us. If you buy any four colors from May 1 – September 2, you’ll get a special Knitted Wit patch. If you buy all 16 colors, you’ll get the patch AND an enamel pin! 

#socksonvacay Knitalong 2019

Make socks between May 1 – September 2 using Knitted Wit yarn and Shannon Squire’s sock patterns (new patterns released May 9)! Share photos on Instagram using #socksonvacay #socksonvacay2019 AND tag @knittedwit and @shannonsq, Shannon has also started a Ravelry thread for the KAL. Prize winners will be chosen by Shannon and Knitted Wit in September!
