Irish Crochet, Spin Together, and So Much More!

September 2021

Irish Crochet!

Tina has been enjoying the Irish crochet classes that she started during the 2021 IOLI UnConvention and found a fun Japanese book on Irish crochet.  We couldn't resist ordering a few copies.  Do you love Irish crochet too?  Pick up a copy of the book here!

Join our Spin Together Team!

Kelli really wanted to have a Spin Together team, so this year we joined as the BlackSheep Voyagers! What is Spin Together?  Well, it's a friendly competition to spin as much yardage as you can from noon local time on Oct. 2nd through noon local time on Oct. 9. Our goals are camaraderie, fun, and sharing the joy of fiber and spinning. We may not win a prize, but we will definitely have some extra team prizes just because we can.  If this sounds like fun, you can join our team at  

Stitch-A-Long & Kit Pre-Order

Kelli is a fan of Kiriki Press and when Michelle released this pre-order kit she had to get one.  The kit is so gorgeous that Kelli is hosting a Stitch-A-Long later this month.  You can pre-order the kit here and watch the FB page and YouTube channel for videos about the SAL. 

In-Person Groups Are Back

If you are local, our in-person groups are back!  Join Tina on Thursday nights from 6:30-8pm and again on Saturday mornings from 10:30am-12pm for in-person groups. Groups meet in the backyard, so bring a project and hang out. 

Last Weekend for Slow Yarn Crawl

Don't know what the Slow Crawl is?  Check out this link to for more info.  Essentially it's 32 shops, 50 patterns, and a whole summer to crawl with prizes, patterns, and fun. Whether you choose to crawl in-person or online, this is a slooooowwww crawl, giving you plenty of time to finish but the crawl ends Sept. 6!
