Northfield’s annual Winter Walk takes place on Thursday, December 12 from 5 – 9 pm. Stop by the shop to make an aromatherapy sachet, vote in our holiday ornament contest, sample a delicious No Chewing Allowed truffle (and perhaps purchase a truffle gift box!), and cheer on the shop manager as she rashly attempts to knit a sweater in just four hours.
Knit Purl Hunter KAL
Knit Purl Hunter’s last KAL begins on October 10th. The first part of the pattern for the asymmetrical shawl will be released on the Knit Purl Hunter Web site at https://knitpurlhunter.com/blog/ on October 10th, with subsequent parts of the pattern released weekly. More info can also be found in the KnitPurlHunter Ravelry Group.
This KAL uses Skacel Simplicity Spray or Simplicity Tonal as the main yarn, along with Simplicity Solid. Yarn is available for purchase in the shop. Join us during Open Stitch time on Thursday evenings in October to work on the KAL together.
Mark your calendars and come see us August 9th & 10th 2019 during the SouthWest Yarn Quest — your favorite multi-shop event! We are planning a scavenger hunt that will take you to five great shops in five great towns south and west of the metro. All the shops will have copies of the scavenger hunt list, pick your starting shop and hit the road! Each shop will will have exclusive custom yarn color created just for them by Northern Bee Studio , we’ll have new exclusive patterns, there will be prizes to win, and so much more!
All 5 shops will be collecting school supply donations during the scavenger hunt, so if you’d like to help, please bring a few school supplies along!
Be sure you follow the adventure on Facebook and Instagram! Share with all your knitter, crocheter and fiber loving friends, we would love to see our group grow! Also, please feel free to use the #swyarnquest #northfieldyarn hashtags when sharing photos on social media!

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!
Keep an eye out for sock-knitting classes and other related events at Northfield Yarn this summer.
