How are you doing? The news seems to be shifting constantly which can be unsettling. There's no doubt that this pandemic has affected all of us in one way or another. In these difficult times we are reaching for our knitting and crochet more and more. The rhythm of our stitches has provided many of us a break from the noise of the news and social media feeds. I'm ever grateful for having my craft to lean on in times like this. We also have to laugh, too, as I've seen many a funny meme about how knitters and crocheters "were ready for this!"
We even have a new Spring CAL/KAL we are working on! STAY TUNED it's going to be a fun one! But if you can't wait...
We have over800 free patternsin our pattern library from shawls to kids designs - even our oldie but goodie fan favorite, Aidez (which would look smashing in our Mercado yarn) - which I hope you'll browse and let inspire you.
Of course I have a few favorites to share:
Top Row (L to R) 1. Cressida Shawl, especially in this golden color! 2. Iras Tank, what a great neutral for all outfits 3. Kaylee Cardigan, a perfect kids piece! Bottom Row: 1. Firth Pullover , simple, cozy, what more do you need? 2. Parnell (which I *love* and can picture it sleeveless, too) 3. Branchville Cardigan, will knit up quickly in Ultra Wool Chunky
Our team at the warehouse continues to pack all our yarns in accordance to the CDC's recommendations. They are in constant communication with our LYS and are adjusting daily how to best serve them. It is a frightful time and we want to be as steady as we can to help those with businesses who are at risk.
We encourage you to check in with your Local Yarn Shops as often as you can. We know they would love to hear from you and most are offering free or discounted shipping, curb pickup and phone orders. If you want to see which shops are near you that you can support please use our Store Locator.
If you're on Instagram and Facebook, join us by sharing what you're making during this stay-at-home period. We know it isn't easy but we also know knitters and crocheters are creative and resilient We'll get through this together one stitch at a time.
We are wishing you all good health and continued safety!
