Giving Thanks
Can you believe it’s already Thanksgiving?! Neither can we!
We thought we’d take a moment and share some gratitude - Yarnivore is our happy place (that includes all y’all) and we have so much for which we’re grateful:
An apple pie with a knitted pie crust
  • All who inspire us (again, all y’all!) to pick up yarn and tools
  • All those who teach us new tricks
  • All the designers, dyers, and makers who share their artistry
  • All those who are patient as we wind, wind, wind yarn
  • All those who give forgive us our mistakes (that includes forgiving yourself for your crocheting-knitting-spinning-weaving mistakes)
  • All those who support our craft even when they don’t practice it
  • All those who keep Yarnivore healthy and thriving even though they have plenty of places to shop
  • All those who help keep Yarnivore a joyful, happy place
Love the knitted pie? You can read all about it on the Ravelry Project Page!


Closing early Wednesday (open 10-3), Closed Thursday. Open Friday, normal hours.

Don’t forget Small Business Saturday - support your locally owned stores, be they yarn shops or otherwise.

Featured Pattern & Yarn

Uneek yarns are, well, UNIQUE! They have beautiful multi-colorways and a soft hand that knits or crochets like a dream. We suggest Uneek Worsted to keep you warm as the weather cools. Which one? Try the Waiting for Fall Poncho by Kim Simpson! It has an elegant falling leaves design that would look great in Uneek's colors! $6 on Ravelry or in-store.

The Tip Jar
Big bold buttons add so much drama and style to your knitted and crocheted pieces, but sometimes, they're so heavy that they distort the soft fabric. To support the fabric and keep the button from stretching things out, sew a small patch of woven fabric into the wrong side, then sew your button through the knitting/crochet and the backing fabric together!
