Happy New Year!
Got any Yarn Resolutions?!

The craziest resolution we've heard so far is Wendy's - she's going to try knitting 12 socks at once on one very long circular needle. We wish her luck!

What are you planning for the new year? Maybe you want to work through stash a bit? Learn a new craft - knit, crochet, weave, naalbind, tat? Try socks or a sweater? Make gifts & decor for NEXT Christmas? Do some charity knitting or crochet?

We're here to help with all your yarn crafting resolutions in 2020. And if you resolve to not make resolutions, we're here for that, too! We wish you a very happy new year filled with yarn, friends, good food, and good health!

The Tip Jar

Y'all are good knitters and crocheters and we KNOW you ALWAYS do a gauge swatch, right? LOL, yeah, sure! Okay, but did you know that you also need to WASH & BLOCK your swatch. Yarn almost always grows a little when it's first washed, so if you want to actually get gauge - ya gotta wash your swatch.
