Celebrating the creativity and influence of women

International Women's Day on March 8 is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. One of its missions involves increasing visibility of women creatives and promoting their work! Whether it's for profit, sustenance, or recreation, all of you are creative! Who's your favorite woman dyer or designer, crocheter, knitter, spinner or weaver? What women have inspired you on your creative journey? Let us know on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, using the following hashtags: #IWD2020 #yarnivoresa
Our list includes each and every one of y'all— a very, very long list!

Want to honor International Women's Day in your own crafting? Do it in purple! Purple is the official color of IWD, signifying justice & dignity. Here are some pattern ideas for a purple flower to knit or crochet to wear on March 8 (both are FREE patterns on Ravelry - click the thumbnail to go to the pattern page):

Featured Notion
We love our row counters, and this one is a new favorite. Cocoknits designed their new row counter to make it easier for knitters and crocheters without looking cheap. It has a special lens that magnifies the row number, it advances with just a click, it LOCKS, and it has a steel backing so that you can wear it with your Cocoknits wristband! Super cool!

The Tip Jar

How long a tail to leave? It has to be enough to thread on a darning needle and sew in, but not so much that you'll accidentally knit or crochet with the tail. Turns out your hand is a good guide! Make sure the yarn is just a little less than the distance between your outstretched pinkie and thumb. That way it has plenty of room to sew in, but is short enough that you'll feel it if you pick up the wrong strand.


Classic Bottom-Up Sweater

Tuesday, March 3, 17, 31 & April 14 from 6-8 pm, $63
Craft: Knitting
Teacher: Wendy

**Perfect Fit For You!**
Learn to make a classic sweater, with set-in sleeves, in your favorite yarn. What makes it traditional? It’s knit from the bottom up, with set-in sleeves, but of course it has the Wendy touch, so it’s still completely seamless and made to fit YOU! Suitable for a first sweater if you’ve never made a sweater before.

And – you can use cotton or linen yarn and make it lightweight and short-sleeved so that you can wear it all summer! Or heavy and warm – your choice!
