What's Hopping at the Frog in September?
It's Doctor Who Month the Theme is "The Timeless Child"

You'll find tons of themed yarns, accessories, and patterns. We feature kits and projects throughout the Doctor Who timeline. We'll have two special projects coming later this month. The shop has all you need for your timeless craft, be it knitting, crochet or spinning. 

 

 

September's Features


Local Yarn Store Day
Saturday, September 12th, is Local Yarn Store Day (LYS Day), a program designed to drive traffic to local yarn stores. LYS Day has brought thousands of ‘yarnies’ from across the US and Canada to their local shops to see the exclusive, unique products created specifically for LYS Day. Think of it as an international Yarn Crawl! We will have exclusive limited edition items and new yarn company items revealed at the event. We will be open from 10am to 5pm on Saturday. Tents will be set up outside to assist with social distancing.  

Introducing the Amaryllis Shawn  


The Amaryllis Shawl by Philine Tucker, kit by Dream in Color, is premiering here at Hook a Frog Fiber & Fun. You can see the scarf in progress at the store.  It is beautiful mosaic shawl in the luscious reds and pinks of Amaryllis flowers. The shawl is knit flat in six colors of fingering weight Smooshy with Cashmere, in easy mosaic slip stitch patterns, and only one yarn held at a time. It can be worn as a colorful wrap or pretty scarf.
