Head To The Beach With WAK

Get Summer ready with six new project kits from We Are Knitters, featuring their Sport weight Pima Cotton. In collaboration with modern knit and crochet designer Alexandra Tavel of Two Of Wands, the four knit and two crochet patterns are inspired by the relaxed, breezy, and trendy vibes of Tulum, Mexico. Choose to make one of the WAK x Two Of Wands’ tops or wraps in the shown neutral color palette, which evokes a beachy, Mexican vibe, or choose your color combo from the full range of WAK colorways.


LYS Day Is Coming

Celebrate your favorite yarn store during the 2nd Annual LYS Day hosted by The National Needlearts Association (TNNA). The day, on Saturday, April 27th, is dedicated to the shops that stock their shelves with our beloved yarn and will feature exclusive in-store patterns and colorways released specifically for #LYSDay. While sneak peeks of the patterns, kits, and yarns have yet to pop up on Instagram, you can see the current list of participating designers and vendors here. But expect many other patterns to pop up, like this one from Casapinka, before the big day.



Mark your calendars for April 27th, which marks the kick-off of the 2nd Annual Brooklyn Yarn Crawl. Over the two day event,  enjoy typical yarn crawl fun, like special guests, trunk shows, and giveaways, while you visit Argyle Knit Shop, Brooklyn General Store, String Thing Studio, and Woolyn. Get to know these inspiring stores in person and meet new knitty friends. Can’t make this mini Spring crawl? Join the Fall New York City Yarn Crawl in September.
