Walkway Wools is a yarn and fiber arts studio located in Poughkeepsie, New York. We are just a short walk from the Walkway Over the Hudson.

So the verdict came out ☹️. The yarn shop cruise isn't happening this year, it will be back in 2018. Some of the shops have a lot going on this summer, planning started a little late, plus 3 shops have closed that were in it last year. So instead, in the next couple of weeks I'll be announcing some fun events and sales for the summer.
I just got the June calendar done, unfortunately there was only 1 Saturday available for classes, decided on doing Fixing Mistakes. Here is a downloadable June Calendar. June Calendar. We're on vacation June 17th-June 25th.
The World Wide Knit In Public Day is at the Upper Landing Park here in Poughkeepsie on Saturday June 10th, 10am-1pm. There is a rain date for Sunday June 11th same time. Shop will open at 1pm following the Knit In, we'll be having a special sale. In case of a rain date the shop will be open Sunday 1-4pm with the same sale.
Thank you to all of the brave souls that came out to the Chancellor's Sheep and Wool Showcase in the lovely weather that we had. It was really great to see everyone there supporting the fest and local fiber artists!
We had a fantastic time for the Pot Luck Charity Knit In. We're still collecting items to send out to this organization, http://www.warmupamerica.org/. Thank you to Toni for getting this together. We ended up with a nice pile of knit items to send out.
2 BIG things happening with Mother Frogging Yarns (these are my hand dyes that I've been doing for 6 years now)!!! Designer Erika Flory visited Walkway Wools a few weeks ago, she purchased one of my 50/50 Lux yarns and designed this wonderful scarf, Walkway Scarf. Pattern can be found and purchased on Ravelry. Scarf only uses 1 skein.
Also, RachySellsStuff, released info for the Mystery Crochet Along pattern, Murcielago. This MCAL started in August it had over 60 rows! Loved hooking this pattern, definitely a pattern that I've never seen, thank you Rachy for creating this one of a kind shawl.
Attention all local knitters and crocheters, Monday Night Hooks and Needles Group meets here every Monday night at 5PM. Anyone at any level please come chat and relax and widdle away on your project. Plenty of seats, coffee and tea maker available.
