Bless Our Mess
Is it too early for spring cleaning?

Now that January has arrived, we're tidying up, restocking, and planning for spring! (It's never too early for some of us to think about warmer weather!) Over the next few weeks, we'll be moving some things around so that we can make room for some new items, like more needlepoint kits. We also have plans for a few new yarns, stay tuned!

If you're also doing some tidying at home, remember that Yarnivore accepts yarn and tool donations. This includes all types of yarn and in any quantities, like the scraps left over from your last project. We then share your donations with groups like the San Antonio Refugee Center, Threads of Love and other groups knitting for charity. If you know of a group who can use donated yarn, send us an email about who it's for and we'll arrange a pick up time.

Be well, be safe, be kind!

Featured Yarn and Pattern
The new year is a great time to try something new! This week's featured pattern has a fun crochet technique - interlocked crochet. Wacky Weave Rainbow in the Round is a FREE pattern, worked with multiple colors of lightweight yarn (Caryn used Catona and North Shore for hers, shown at right). While the technique will be new to many of you, it's not really that hard. The designer also offers video support!

Hours this week

11-5 Monday-Thursday, Saturday
Noon-5 Sunday

Private Lessons
In-store and online private lessons are available! Please call us at 210-979-8255 to schedule a lesson! Wendy, Dawn, and Nancy M. are all available to help you with your projects! Private Lessons can be scheduled outside of regular hours at the discretion of the teacher.

The Tip Jar

If you find that your yarn is splitting all the time, try using rounded-tip needles or hooks. These are more likely to push the yarn aside instead of piercing it like sharp needles often do.

On the other hand, if you find stitches like k2tog really hard to do, you may actually NEED really sharp needles. Many knitters use blunter needles for plain knitting without too many decreases and sharp needles for lace or patterns with lots of decreases.

All regular classes are currently on hold until we can safely seat up to 6 students in the classroom. We'll let y'all know when we can offer them again. Until then, we're offering most of our class material in private lessons.
