Upcoming Lion Brand Summer Yarns Contest Answered


Summer isn't typically the time we think about taking up needles and wool, but the availability of light-weight and gossamer yarns these days, it's the perfect time to whip up some new projects.

We're teaming up with our friends from Lion Brand to bring you the Summer Yarns Contest!

Show off your lace techniques, craft up new totebags, make some summer shawls or sundresses. Think beach, bbq, and long, hot days, and get your needles, hooks and looms ready to go.  We'll be launching this one soon!

He was a football player, unless you are a Brit and consider American Football a pansy sport. The point being real men can do anything. And ladies too.
