Local Yarn Store Love

  • Local Yarn Store Day was April 21st and was created by TNNA to support and boost interest in local yarn shops.
  • We mentioned the closing of Knitterly and Adirondack Yarns.
  • Local yarn shops create knitting community and provide educational resources.  Even if you already have more yarn than you can possibly knit in a lifetime, you can support your LYS by taking classes and participating in knit alongs!  Plus, purchase your needles and notions from your LYS.  Every little bit helps.
  • Tara mentioned Lovelyarns in Baltimore, MD.
  • Ashley mentioned Addi needles.

Misadventures

Recently, Tara destashed some of her yarn, including a few sweater quantities.  She gifted some yarn to friends and plans to donate the rest.  She also frogged a few projects that she lost interest in.

Hot Off the Needles

Ashley finished the Confluence Shawlette by Sivia Harding.  She used Fibre Company Meadow and Toho Beads.

Ashley also finished the April Square of the River Knits Afghan, which included colorwork and steeking.  Ashley loved the experience!  She used videos by Mary Jane Mucklestone and Kate Davies to guide her through the steps.
