Shop Newsa crocheted chubby white unicorn with a swirly pink horn and multicolored mane stands in front of the box for the Hoooked Unicorn Nora Kit. The yarns and crochet hook that are included in the kit are at Nora the Unicorn's feet.

Featured Yarn & Patterns
We absolutely love the adorable amigurumi kits from Hoooked Yarn! There's a unicorn (shown at right), a duckling, puppy, llama, seahorse - and much more. All the Hoooked critter kits come with a crochet hook, pattern, and all the yarn you'll need to complete the project - all you need is stuffing!

Speaking of stuffing, if you prefer natural fibers, Hoooked Yarn also offers a 100% recycled cotton stuffing in both off-white (pearl) and dark grey (storm) colors. It's machine washable and perfect for stuffies for the kiddos (or for yourself).

The Tip Jar

Are you a book person, as well as a yarn person, with a lot of craft-related books? Do you want to organize your non-fiction books like the library does, by Dewey Decimal number?

If so, we've found a website for you! The OCLC (formerly known as the Online Computer Library Center) has a website called Classify that will let you enter the ISBN number (usually found right above the barcode) of a book and get a suggested Dewey classification. While the Classify project is still experimental, we found it worked quite well! We typed in the ISBN of one of Wendy's favorite knitting books (Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitter's Almanac) and got a Dewey number of 746.432.

Yay! Another rabbit hole to fall into!
