As you know, the cancelations of knitting events has hit teachers and event organizers hard, but it has also impacted vendors and our local yarn stores. Supporting local and small businesses is one of the great ways to send out our love and help our craft community during this crisis.
I’m extremely thankful that I get to work with a lot of amazing vendors, and they really do a great job ensuring that we can get the supplies we need for our projects. So, please allow me to introduce these amazing folks who are doing their best to provide us with beautiful yarn even during this challenging time.
I know, I know. Your mind is probably filled with projects to knit and craft for your loved ones. But isn’t it just as important to think about good gift ideas that THEY can put on their shopping list for you? Or better yet, perhaps you should put something on your own list as a reward for a job well done in 2018. If you’re looking for a truly spectacular gift for yourself (or your fellow knitter), then keep reading, because I think I know what should be on your list.
The Importance of Yarn
If “clothes make the man (or woman),” then surely “yarn makes the sweater.”
There are times when the silhouette of a design comes first and then I go hunting for a yarn, and then there are the times when a special yarn is the start of my design. The moment I saw (and felt) Anzula’s For Better or Worsted I knew it would be the perfect yarn for my first (drum roll please) custom dyed SWEATER KIT!!!
