Knitting Pure & Simple Sock Workshop

Diane Soucy is coming back to GYG Yarn Studio to give a repeat offering of her very popular Sock Workshop. For those of you who missed the class the first time around or want a refresher, we're offering the workshop in mid-September - early enough to start knitting for the holidays!

When: Saturday, September 12  10-4pm
Where: Got Your Goat Yarn Studio
Cost: $75.00 

This class is great for beginners who have completed at least 3 simple projects and know how to purl or for more intermediate/advanced knitters who need to brush up or customize their sock knitting skills.

You will learn basic sock construction for a top-down sock including:
  • how to turn a heel
  • how to shape a gusset and toe sock of any yarn weight or gauge
  • how to make your socks fit perfectly
  • and how to design your own custom sock
Drop by or call to sign up before the class fills up!

New Bling‌ in GYG Shop!

If you're familiar with our featured custom bags from Tango Tango Designs by Theresa Thurmond, you'll be excited to hear that we're selling her new line of embellished shawl pins. Each design is a one of a kind blend of beads, crystals or embossed leather in fabulous floral, shell, spiral or other inspired shapes.

Come in to see which pin will suit the shawl you're knitting now or will match the yarn you're buying for your next shawl. Here are some of the pins in stock as of this posting:

Crochet this Shrug!

You may have noticed new summer samples in our shop lately (or if not, it's time to come in and visit!) We've added some light weight sweaters in cotton and linen as well as some cute children's items.

We recently added the Patina Shrug, a simple crocheted shrug made with Universal Yarn's Cotton Supreme from the Spring Forward pattern book. Modeled by lovely Debbie, the shrug adds interest to a summer outfit without any weight.
Note - this shrug is a medium and Debbie is a petite/small.

We hope to feature more crocheted items in the future since yarn lovers of all kinds are welcome at Got Your Goat.
