Seattle Area Yarn News:
All Wound Up Chemo Hat Drive
Under the guidance of a beloved friend who is personally battling cancer, All Wound Up is starting a Chemotherapy Hat drive, to benefit two local cancer centers in the Edmonds area. Charity Makers are encouraged to knit hats of all sizes for men and women. Please only use cotton or bamboo yarns (no acrylic or animal fibers). You may drop off your hats at All Wound Up. We currently have a few donated skeins available for pick up!
Don't have time to make a hat?
Become a Charity Donor! Purchase a skein of Bamboo Pop DK for the shop. We will give it to a Charity Maker who can knit or crochet a hat for the drive.

Recurring Social Knitting in Local Yarn Stores:
Acorn Street Yarn
Knit Night 6:00pm-8:00pm
Once a month we will close off the parking lot behind the shop and host an outdoor evening knitting shindig. Bring your favorite camping chair, or we'll have our trusty old folding chairs available if you need one. We'll have a snack table set up so feel free to bring some yummies to share if you'd like. If we need some shade we'll bring out our canopy tents, but if the rain sets in we'll cancel for the month. And given that we'll be outside, masks for vaccinated folks will be optional but we will ask those who haven't gotten their shots to wear masks the whole time.
