Welcome to Kirtland's Yarn Barn!

24 Mar 2020 - Store Status

Although Virginia is under a 'stay-at-home' order, we live next door to the store, so I will be able to continue shipping as long as the post office stays open. Delivery may take longer than usual.

Some of my suppliers are also in states with 'stay-at-home' orders or are operating with reduced staff, so special ordering yarn may be iffy until people are able to return to work. Inventory counts are now displayed for all yarn — the numbers in the computer don't always match what's on the shelf, but should be pretty close.

My version of Nightshift Shawl. I used 1 ball each Akari #5 & #7. The original shawl is knit from the cast on few stitches to the other end. With the Akari, I knew the striping would get narrower and narrower but I wanted more color blocking. So I worked until top edge was 36" wide then I decreased instead of increasing until back to the original number of stitches. Looks like sand and surf. I love how soft and cozy the yarn is. Probably could use a better picture as sun came out when I was trying to shoot it. Pattern is $7, yarn is $40 a ball.
