Lone Star Fiber Arts!

It's time for another awesome trunk show, this time with Local Yarn Dyer Lone Star Fiber Arts (aka Amanda)!

Amanda was a part of the knitting group where Yarnivore's Founder Melanie, and Longest Employee Wendy met, and where the concept of a new yarn shop in San Antonio began. She's not just a yarn artist, but also a scientist with a degree in nuclear engineering! I mean, she has a drum kit next to her yarn drying racks - can't get cooler than that.

Come meet Amanda and see her beautiful yarns and handmade project bags THIS SATURDAY, May 25 from 11 am-4 pm!

Your Favorite Patterns?
Almost every week, we try to show you some patterns that we think are pretty cool, and what yarn we think they'll look great with. That's fun! But we'd also like to know what patterns YOU think are cool! If we like it, too (and we probably will), we'll feature it in a future newsletter. If we get enough submissions, we'll make this a monthly feature!
Here's the link to submit a pattern idea!
Turtle Looms Back in Stock
We have the Turtle looms back, but they're selling fast! Gabi also showed us some more samples, including this Owl Baby Blanket (at right), which we totally fell in love with.

The Tip Jar

A while back, we discussed the benefits of blunt-ended knitting needles. So what are sharp needles good for? They ROCK at getting into tight places, which makes them ideal for anything with lots of decreases or twists, like lace or cable knitting! And of course, some people just love their needles super pointy!  


Weaving: Finishing Techniques

Now that you’ve woven a perfect piece, how do you finish it? In this class, you’ll learn to take your piece off the loom and finish it in a variety of ways including twisting fringe and braiding fringe (3- and 4-strand braiding).
