Yarn Crafts for the Kiddos!
Fun for kids of all ages!
Whether you're looking for at-home activities or need a gift for that crafty kid, we've got some great ideas for you.
You can support two local businesses (Bluebonnet Crafters and Yarnivore) when you give a Turtle Loom. These fun kits come in several sizes and have everything you need to weave hexagon-shaped fabric, just add yarn! Gabi, the engineering genius behind the Turtle Loom, has a bunch of YouTube videos to teach and inspire you.
Yarnivore also has the Bucilla Circle Weaving Loom, Schacht Zoom Loom, and Harrisville Potholder looms for those who want to try weaving.
Potholder looms are just like the ones we all used in elementary school. Schacht and Harrisville are both US makers. The Harrisville Potholder Loom also comes in a combo package with Harrisville's book of ideas. Be sure to stock up on loops for your loom, too.
Want to gift a tapestry weaving kit? Tapestry weaving is a great way to introduce someone to weaving because it's simple to get started. The Black Sheep DIY Tapestry Loom comes with either just the loom or with yarn. This kit is fun to assemble (yes, fun!). We also carry Harrisville Peg Looms, as well as Schacht Lilli, 18" and 25" tapestry looms. The Peg Loom and Lilli are lap-friendly looms for kids and adults. The 18" and 25" tapestry looms are better suited for sitting at a table.
We'll be back with more ideas next week!
Be well, be safe, be kind!

Look at these lovely row counter bracelets from local artist Joy Miller! Made with high quality beads, these row counters can help you keep track of up to 499 rows. Surprise someone with one or splurge on one for yourself. To use it, you just move beads through the stretchy rubber o-ring. The one pictured at right shows 2 "tens" beads and 4 "ones" beads - 24 rows!

The Tip Jar
If your skein has come untwisted and you're not ready to wind it yet, here's how to re-twist it:
1. Put your hands inside the loop and "pop" it open.
2. Look at the direction the yarn itself is twisted and twist the skein in that same direction.
4. Hold the middle under your chin, bring the two ends together and tuck one end inside the "loop" of the other end.
5. Let go and let it twist!
