What's Your Moon Shot? The back of a colorwork sweater showing a stylized moon

Finding joy in trying new things!

If you're suffering from quarantine blues, you're not alone. Social distancing helps prevent infection but the uncertainty and stress drains us emotionally. One coping mechanism is to stay occupied - crafters excel at this, right? After we've-forgotten-how-many weeks, it's understandable if you've gotten a little tired of current projects. If so, take a moment and think about new crafts or skills you might want to learn.

Moonshot goals are ambitious and seemingly impossible. Named for President Kennedy's goal of sending people to the moon, this term challenges us to think beyond what is incremental or practical. So, to combat quarantine blues, let's take a mental wander. What skill or craft have you dreamed about? Is it a great fantasy or is there something you can do to make it happen? If you want to make it happen, let us know how we can help. Yarnivore can provide references to local or digital resources (as well as relevant tools & supplies). If you're isolating at home, you can call, email, or message us on social media. (photo: Weeping Sun and Moon colorwork sweater by Meg Swanson, available at

The Tip Jar
Did you know that you can use your knitted/crocheted/woven scarves and cowls to STAY COOL?

If you have a thinnish cowl or scarf made from cotton, rayon or polyester (no thick yarns, and no animal fiber), you can use it to cool off! Wet your scarf or cowl, roll it in a towel to get rid of excess water, then put it around your neck or shoulders. As the air moves past it, it will cool you down!

All classes are currently on hold, due to the San Antonio & Bexar County joint Stay Home/Work Safe order.
