I wanted to share a friend of a friend’s Indigogo fundraiser today because it’s related to several things I’ve written about before including the slow yarn movement, yarn spinners and American manufacturing.
Continuing with my November monthly theme of sharing things I love from my Pinterest boards I thought I’d use today to highlight ten items from the 200+ I’ve pinned to my board of yarn eye candy.
Alternative materials like newspaper can be turned into yarn balls and those yarn balls are art in and of themselves.

Each yarn behaves a little bit differently. There is an opportunity via Etsy to sample different types of breeds in small batches of yarn to get a sense of the different options available.
We’ll look at types of wool and wool yarns, different phrases used in reference to wool, pros and cons of crocheting with wool, wool events and more.
In this post I’m rounding up all of the articles I shared in 2012 that were about yarn.
