Yarn Carpool?
We can help!
Yarn Crawling is SO much more fun when you can share it with other Yarn Enthusiasts! We want to help you find people to carpool with so that you can all have a super-fun Crawl!

Here's how to find other Yarnivores to Crawl with:
  • Go to THIS LINK and fill out the form to share your contact info with other people interested in carpooling. Note: You cannot use this form if you're not willing to make your information visible to other potential carpoolers.
  • Come to Friday Night Cravings (our knit/crochet night - open to all) and talk to the folk there about carpooling.
We will have a Carpoolers' Meet Up Party a couple of weeks before the Crawl so that you can meet the people you'll be driving with in person!

Note: We're not assigning drivers or riders, but only making it easier for you to find each other.

We're clearing out and making room for Yarn Crawl,
and that means that YOU get extra savings!

Superclearance starts Friday, August 31,
and goes through Memorial Day, Monday, September 3.

All clearance yarns are at least 30% off the clearance price, 
with some at 50% OFF their CLEARANCE PRICE!


Shop News

We're closing at 3 pm on Labor Day. Make sure you come early to take advantage of the Superclearance Sale!

Featured Pattern & Yarn
Nomad by Fate looks fabulous in multiple colors... or you could substitute a long-run color changing yarn like Nebula. Nomad is a free crochet pattern available on Martin Up North's blog, or swing by the store and we'll print you a copy!

Is it too hot to work on cooler weather projects? That's what a/c is for! We like to spend late summer working in thinner winter yarns like Berroco Nebula. This fingering weight yarn has long-run color changes and works up beautifully into a winter garment or afghan of your choice. Nebula is 100% superwash merino and has a bit of a halo, making it perfect for larger-than-fingering gauge patterns.

Our trunk shows this weekend were a HUGE success! Thank you so much for giving Becky (of Crafting my Chaos) and Gabi (of Bluebonnet Crafts/Turtle Looms) such a great Yarnivore welcome! Want to see them again? Both will be showing at Yarnivore again during the Hill Country Yarn Crawl.

The Tip Jar
Are you over 40 (or nearing 40)? Starting to need to hold your book farther away to see it? Next time you visit your eye doctor, take your knitting or crochet, and show them where you like to hold your work. It's often closer than you would hold a book to read, so a prescription for reading glasses may not actually work for your crafting. If the doctor knows where you hold your work, he or she can measure that distance and make sure that you can see your work clearly.
