It may have been a scorcher outside, but we had a cool time during the Yarn-In!
Sparkle AND softness! Come in to see (and touch) Luminosa, a deliciously soft, shiny yarn from Cascade. It contains 52% Viscose, 44% Baby Alpaca (softness), 4% Merino (more softness) and has 240 yds/100g.
In addition to Luminosa, we also received Heritage Silk Peruvian Tones. Each hank contains 437yds/100g and is made up of 85% Superwash Merino Wool and 15% Silk. Luscious for shawls, socks, and anything else you can dream up for fingering weight yarn! Stop by today to pick up your hank of yummy softness!
The summer heat is on, which is a great time to stay indoors and stitch with friends!
We are like a family at GYC, and one of our family members, Michelle, is a breast cancer survivor. Therefore, in her honor, The Gourmet Yarn Co. is proud to announce it’s collaboration with Knitted Knockers! Knitted Knockers are special handmade breast prosthetics for women who have undergone mastectomies and other breast procedures.
To help make and distribute these prosthetics, the Gourmet Yarn Co. will host a charity knitting and crochet circle to make Knitted Knockers that is scheduled to meet the third Monday of each month from 10:30-12:30. There is no registration required and patterns and staff are always available. Gourmet Yarn Co. is also a drop-off location for completed Knockers, whether they are stuffed or not, please include a note that states the size of the knockers and the brand of yarn used.
If you want to get involved but have no experience with either knitting or crocheting, please visit gourmetyarnco.com for information regarding classes, or you can make a donation to knittedknockers.org!
The Gourmet Yarn Co. is excited to join the Knitted Knockers team and provide Knitted Knockers to women across Oklahoma!
For more information, please contact Michelle at Gourmet Yarn Co. (She works most Mondays.)
We will be closing early today at 3:30pm, due to severe weather.

We had a great time this past Saturday during the Yarn-In. I know several regretted having to miss because of graduations, Mother's Day, etc. As something different, GYC gave away several discount coupons as Mother's Day presents. Of course, no one had to be a mother to win one.
