Knit For Good

The now Ohio-based fiber house, The Fiber Seed, is helping their neighbors in need. Through Monday, June 3rd at 11:59 pm (that’s tonight!) they will be donating all the proceeds from all sales to the Dayton Foodbank to help those in the Miami Valley/Dayton area who were affected by the recent tornadoes. Try one of their cool Half Speckled colorways, grab a sweater quantity of their Sprout Worsted, or pick up some Sprout Minis to add to your scrappy blanket project. Cast on with your new haul knowing that you made a difference.

Keep It Real

If you’re bummed that #memademay is officially over and that you have to wait 243 more days until February’s #yarnlovechallenge begins again, click on over to Instagram where you can follow a new challenge that kicked off on June 1st. The #keepingitrealchallenge, founded by a group of designers, aims to demystify curated Instagram photos. For the entire month of June, participating knitting and crochet designers will keep it real by showing off behind the scenes images of their creative selves by posting pictures of their stash storage, photoshoot outtakes, and more.


There’s nothing better than a cheering squad when you take on a new project and this summer, Woolberry will be creating an epic community of support. Join Woolberry’s The Great Summer Road Trip Make-Along and cast on any project on July 1st using any Woolberry yarn. Will you be #woolberrysocksquad, #woolberryshawlsquad, #woolberrysweatersquad, #woolberryhatsnmittssquad, or #woolberrybabyknitsquad? While you post pics of your WIP, Woolberry will post weekly prompts, host games, and giveaway prizes. The making and the fun goes through August 31st.

CAST ON: Pixie Dust by Tamy Gore

A magical shawl that combines three colors of Sport weight yarn to create an asymmetrically shaped accessory that drapes beautifully around the neck. Color and technique changes (you’ll use brioche, slipped stitches, and garter stitch) make this a fun and fast knit, but the squishiness and eye-catching look of the shawl make it one you’ll want to wear with everything.
