Welcome Back Advertiser Yarn Stash
In the past when people heard the word “Knit” or “Crochet” images of a sweet white haired woman rocking away on her porch with the makings of a large afghan or even baby booties for the new addition to the family arose so sweetly you could get a cavity.
If you’re like most of us, we have that favorite throw on the end of our beds or draped over a couch. One that provides a feeling calm and comfort in the coldest of times. Not to discount the long hours our grandmothers put into our cherished home adornments but this century’s knitter is anything but traditional.
Just Google the word “knit” and you’ll find any number of unabashedly loyal yarn artists just looking to turn the stereotype on its cookie cutter head. Not only can you find people adorned for life with tattoos of their passion for the craft but an endless number of blogs, websites, books and every form of new media thinkable about how “Knit Is It!”
Not only can you do it anywhere, but knitting goes beyond envious one-of-a-kind originals that turn heads to environmentally friendly tools. You know that cardboard sleeve you get each morning with that piping hot cup of java? You can replace that wasteful sleeve with a knit version that is simple and easy to make. Last year our local yarn experts and all around crafty divas at The Yarn Stash in Burien revealed their secret pattern for a coffee cozy that met with rave reviews. Practical, stylish and easy enough for even the greenest knitter among us.
Oh yes my friendly “Yarn Jockeys” (lovingly called so) are taking the fashion and accessory world by storm. I challenge you to go to a store and see if you don’t find knit incorporated into the chic new lines from winter to summer. Wouldn’t the inner creative genius in you be so proud if you could say “Hey, I could knit that myself?” The truth of it is, you can! The Ladies of The Yarn Stash have one-on-one classes and also group training if you’d rather bring a bunch of newbies along. If you’re of the more seasoned level of knitter and want to try something newer and bolder, Beth or Bonnie have the experience, tools and resources to help you evolve your passion for the purl.
For information on how you can join the knitting craze, contact The Yarn Stash in Burien at (206) 246-2727 or just drop in 615 Southwest 152nd Street Burien, WA 98166. There is always a big comfy chair and a lot of welcome smiles waiting for you.
