Go green by making your own string! Broaden your fiber repertoire by learning how to recycle everyday items into “yarn” you can use for knit, crochet and mixed-media projects! You’ll make a ball each of workable yarn out of spun newspaper, cut t-shirts and grocery bags. I’ll also provide a pattern for the Extra! Eco! frame front, as well as other project recommendations from her book, AwareKnits.
These handy little shapes can be used to embellish a skirt, act as the body of a bag or be pieced together to make pretty much anything your little stitching heart desires. In this intro class, we’ll cover the basic crochet stitches and how to make a basic granny square. You’ll leave with an understanding of how to create both small & large squares on your own and my Mod Granny blanket pattern from Crochet Today! Magazine, or I’ll give you some ideas of things you can make with just 2 squares!
Know the very basics of crochet are are ready to take your skills up to the next level? This class is for you! I will get you started (speedy hookers may even finish!) on a one of the most popular projects from her book Pop Goes Crochet, the “Doris” scarf. This lovely neck piece is perfect for warmer weather and makes a great gift! Students should have 1 or 2 simple crochet projects under their belt to take this class.
In this class, traditional meets trendy! Learn how to incorporate old-school, knotted cables into the popular, eternity-style scarf. I’ll walk you through using stitch holders instead of cable needles to tie knots in your knitting while you work-up your own version of her Chain Gang scarf pattern. This project makes a great gift, stylish accessory AND ups the ante on your mad knitting skillz!
This is an intermediate class; knitting experience required.

Today (3/31) is Trans Visibility Day, which also, coincidentally marks three weeks since I began volunteering as a Crisis Counselor for @trevorproject, an organization with the mission to end suicide amongst LGBTQ+ youth.
At this point, I only have a thimble's worth of experience, but from human to human, I thought I'd share just one of the things I've learned so far about what it means to identify as trans.
To the trans folks in my life, today and every day, sending love and acceptance your way.
To everyone, kind to one another. Respect each other's individual journies....
I’ve legit been waiting for @ikeausa to have this glass case in-stock since mid pandemic. I wanted a happy little place for projects of YarnYAY! Past to live. I love a knitwear stack. 😍 It’s the little things, people!
(Oh, and patterns for every thing in this curio are available in my shop at YarnYAY.com ✔️)...
Today's the day we kick off the Crochet-along for the @pompommag Overprint Bag, in partnership with designer @juliamadill
We've put together Montoya Merino Light kits in my YarnYAY! shop, but no matter which yarn you use (the called-for yarn is rad, but a little harder to get here in the states -- see Julia's great post about yarn substitutions), we'd love for you to make yours along with us!
Psst...YarnYAYers get a special 20% off the digital issue pf Pom Pom. See our kit page (tap or go to yarnyay.com) for details!
