(Don't know what the Yarn Crawl is? Click here for info & rules)

Crawlers, are you ready? Yarnivore hopes to enchant you with all kinds of local hand dye, plus lots of yarn from all your favorite makers. Plus, we've found a treasure trove of awesome tools, notions, and other doodads to bring a smile to your face.

Here are a few of the goodies you'll find at Yarnivore this year:

 Our fiber community knows how to share the love! Yarnivore makes it a little bit easier with cards and prints from Knit Baah Purl, Story People, and Lenny Mud. Don't forget we also have mugs, wine glasses (sheepfaced, anyone?), and yarn bowls.

Hand made ornaments, baby booties, and felted soaps from Silk Road Bazaar offer a fair-trade way to gift! SRB works with communities in central Asia to create and sustainable craft-based businesses.

String art kits from Strung by Shawna! Each kit handmade in the US by a woman-owned business. These DIY kits include a recipe card, along with a step-by-step instruction sheet.

DIY tapestry weaving kits from Black Sheep Goods are a great way to share your love of weaving! Kits have pop-out loom, tools, instructions, and yarn or get the loom-only version (no yarn in this one).

Spinner alert! Yarnivore has a fresh batch of solar-dyed mohair locks from Naumann's Angoras! We also have undyed/natural, perfect for doll and santa making! Plus, we have a new shipment of Ashford silk roving, lush-ious!

Wishlets are handmade party favors and small gifts perfect for almost every occasion. Each comes individually packaged and ready to be handed out as a small gift or party favor. This makes it easier for you and your busy lifestyle!

We know y'all love your Katrinkles tools & markers, now we also have bracelet row counters and ornament kits! Ornament kits (shaped like sweaters, hats, stockings, mittens, etc) come with floss, needle, and backing/felt, or you can buy the ornament alone and decorate with your own stash!

Pretty hexagon and heart-shaped stitch markers from Laura Hand Knits!

Oh so whimsically clever things for your home. Yarnivore is all about sparking fiber joy, but we also just love things that make us feel good, like these knitted-hat gnomes!

Zipper pouches, perfect for holding your tools AND putting a smile on your face. Hand made in the US by Dandy Like Candy (named for her standard response to "how are you?"). We'd like to be dandy-like-candy too!

We know all y'all can't wait to get your 2019 Crawl button. Watch our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts (@YarnivoreSA) for teasers on this year's button, patterns, and yarn!

The Tip Jar

Knitters: If you do a long-tail cast-on, then the first row of actual knitting needs to be a WRONG-SIDE row. What to do if your pattern calls for a right-side row for 1? You have 3 choices: You can skip row 1 and just start with row 2; you can work a purl row and then start your pattern; you can work the last row of the pattern first (if the pattern has, say, 12 rows, work row 12 first).

Elizabeth Zimmerman was a genius when it came to making shapes with knitting. In this case it's an ingenious origami-like cardigan construction. Come check it out for a fun challenge! You'll even get Wendy's supplement to the pattern with exact stitch counts for every row!

Learn twisted stitches and cabling with this elegant braided cable hat. The brim starts with twisted stitches done without a cable needle, then flows into braided cables, so that you can practice both right- and left-twists.
