Yarn Party This Saturday!!
Local Yarn Shop Day
Gifts and prizes and savings, oh my!
Local Yarn Shop Day is this Saturday, April 30th! Please drop by to see all the new yarns, including Berroco Isola, Berroco Vivo, Dream in Color Suzette, Gusto Carmen, Gusto Echoes (coming soon), Jody Alba Coastline, Queensland Coastal Cotton, and Urth 16 Fingering. Y'all have been so very supportive that we want to thank you. We'll have small thank you gifts for everyone... Here's a hint, we're expecting a long hot summer, and Yarnivore will help keep you cool! We're also launching our free tote program. This Saturday only, shoppers will receive a Yarnivore tote with a purchase of $25 or more. We'll have several drawings, too!
Hope to see you there!

Featured Yarn & Pattern
Isola, by Berroco, is a long ombré gradient yarn, giving your projects a unique color effect. The yarn is a textured thread with a subtle sheen and spectacular drape. It's a DK weight cotton/linen/viscose yarn and comes in ready-to-use balls of 100g/284 yards.
We like it for summer tops and shawls, like the Nacre top by Amy Christoffers, made with motif crochet )$8 in-store/Ravelry/Berroco website) or the Kesha knitted lace rectangle shawl (shown at right) also by Amy Christoffers (knit, $6 in-store/Ravelry/Berroco website).
We'll Be Closed for Mother's Day
Yarnivore will be closed on Mother's Day, May 8th. We hope y'all will enjoy your time celebrating the women in your life who showed you love, compassion, and wisdom!

The Tip Jar
USE MARKERS! We don't mean sharpies, we mean stitch markers or thread markers. We often hear from people that they think more advanced stitchers don't "need" to use markers. That's absolutely false! More experienced stitchers in every craft use MORE markers than beginners.
Knitters - Use ring markers to count your cast-on and between repeats! Use locking or split-ring markers to mark cable rows and to mark where you've increased or decreased.
Crocheters - Use locking or split-ring markers to count stitches in your starting chain, to mark the top of turning chains (especially if the turning chain counts as a stitch!), to mark the end of a round, to mark corners in a motif, or chain spaces that are harder to see.
Needlepointers, embroiderers and cross stitchers - stitch a single-strand marking thread across the center of your canvas/cloth both horizontallly and vertically! If you're using a charted pattern that has darkened lines every 10 stitches (usually), then also thread mark those to help prevent miscounting mistakes.
Markers save time and prevent mistakes. USE THEM!
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.
