Crafting On and On and On
Yarns in the Farms is open for in-person shopping: Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 10am - 2pm, Saturday from 11am - 5pm, and Sunday from 1-5pm. Our online shop remains open as well and we're still shipping and doing contactless pickups. Please, don't hesitate to reach out to us if we can assist in any way.

[NB: Unless otherwise specified, yarn, needle, accessory, and book links/images will take you to our website and pattern links/images will take you to Ravelry.]

Self-imposed holiday crafting deadlines can be stressful, we know! But remember, you're doing something you really like/love to do for people you really like/love (hopefully!).

These same people will completely understand if their hat isn't quite done or their one finished sock still needs a mate.

Making for your friends and family should be a joyful experience so lose some of the stress and allow yourself to remember that just because something *should* be done by the first night of Hanukkah or Christmas Eve, doesn't mean it has to be. A belated gift in January will be just as appreciated by the recipient as if they opened it on an "appointed" day.

Get back to the soothing part of crafting and use it as a stress reliever and not a stress inducer this holiday season!


Maybe you're not stressed about getting your holiday crafting done but you have a project or two that you need a little help on? WIP classes are a great way to get that assistance! Click HERE to see when they're scheduled and sign up.

Crafty Countdown - Week 7

Still looking for ideas of what to make for someone?

We're moving up to DK weight patterns this week and are
looking at headbands/earwarmers for those folks in your life who may not be hat wearers but still need to keep their ears warm.

To Knit


Top to bottom, left to right: Green Forest, Headband with a Twist, Easy Headband, The Nudo Headband


To Crochet

We see all of these looking spectacular in our new Nordic Yarn Eco Cashmere, Rowan Felted Tweed or Felted Tweed Colour, Round Mountain Willow DK, Fibre Co. Luma, Berroco Ultra Wool DK, or Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok.

Pop in if you would like some help choosing a winning combination!


For all you charity crafters out there, we have a new resource for you!

The founder of this Facebook group, Glenda, reached out to us a few weeks ago to ask if we would share her Crochet, Knit, Sew, Donate group with all of our lovely folks. We, of course, are happy to do so!

If you're on Facebook and craft for charity or know of a local charity that could use handmade donations, join her group!

Berroco Project of the Week
(Yarn and pattern links in this section will take you to Berroco's pages for the design and the yarn.)

Colors can be so head turning at times that we often forget the beauty of a pattern done up in a soothing set of neutrals. If you're a neutral lover, this is a great project for you!

This is "Lucienne"

A modular knit, striped shawl with tricolor tassels, this shawl is one of those cozy throw on layers that everyone loves when the chill kicks in.

This project would also be a great gift for a neutral knitter in your life!

Knit in Berroco Ultra Alpaca Natural, you'll need one hank in each of three colors and US size 8 needles to complete this project. The sample is shown in 62500 Jasmine Rice, 62506 Rye, and 62503 Farro.

Ultra Alpaca Natural is a 50/50 blend of super fine alpaca and Peruvian wool with 219 yards per hank. These beautiful colors are all created by blending the natural colors of alpaca with undyed wool. It retails for $13/hank.


There is an additional $8 shipping charge for these drop ship orders so Berroco can send them straight to your door.

Want to order one of these kits? Go to Berroco's pages for the design and yarn to check out the details and choose your size and colors (clicking on the links/pictures above will take you straight to them!). Then click here and send us an email. We'll be in touch to confirm your information and process your payment.



Is there an older Project of the Week that you're still thinking about? We can likely still get it! Check the Berroco 1-2-3 Dropship Store to figure out all the details and then use the email link above to send us a message.
