- We are Knitcrate Ambassadors! Are you the kind of knitter who would enjoy receiving a surprise package of yarn in the mail every month? Then you need to sign up for a Knitcrate subscription. Every month, you will receive a selection of curated yarn, a pattern specifically paired to use with the yarn, and a treat.

- FiberCrafty’s independently owned shops are stocked with yarn, fiber, project bags, stitch markers and more. With filter terms specific to yarn and fiber, the ability to save favorites, and a secure checkout process, it’s better than a 24 hour fiber festival! For shop owners, our easy to use interface makes selling online easy. FiberCrafty is owned by one woman that has a crazy love of yarn and knitting. Greg’s favorite feature? Pants are optional. Shop for your next project at FiberCrafty.

I lost #YarnChicken in the bind off. So I reclaimed some yarn from the cast on and made it work. I had to reclaim yarn from where I joined skeins in order to finish seaming the second sleeve. See those yarn scraps at top? That’s all that was leftover. I’ll have to use something else for the buttons. I need to get buttons — hopefully my wife can go button shopping with me soon. She’s totally in charge of buttons. #knitting #knittersofinstagram #ezalong #unravelingpodcast #babysurprisejacket
