Stocking Stuffers and Stuff

If you're a regular reader of The Toledo Blade, you probably have noticed the Holiday Gift Guides published daily in the front section in December. The December 21 issue was a guide entitled, "What To Buy Artists and Crafters" and featured a mention of the many knitting and crochet books carried by Yarn Cravin'! Congrats on the good press, Bobbie and Dale! If you still have your Blade from that day, you can find it on page four.

Is there still room in the stocking of your favorite knitter or fiber friend? Need a little gift for a holiday package? Stumped for a little Hanukkah gift for a knitter? Yarn Cravin' has some little treats!

Little sheep key chains made of wool, in grey, black, or white.

Zippered notion pouches made of felted wool. This is the larger size. YC also has a smaller size in various colors, including teal and purple. (No photos, because they weren't even unpacked yet when I was there to take photos!)

A very popular book, especially for fiber enthusiasts and sock knitters, is this one:

The third in a series, Clara Parkes has also written The Knitter's Book of Yarn and The Knitter's Book of Wool. She reviews new yarns and knitting tools at, an online weekly email magazine. It's free to subscribe.

The new schedule of classes is out! Check out the offerings and sign up. You can see what your choices are by going to the Yarn Cravin' website and clicking on the "class schedule" tab. Yarn Cravin' Website

Please take a moment to send healing thoughts to our dear owner Dale Ann as she is recovering from surgery to remove her pesky gall bladder. All went well and we expect her back in the shop soon.

Everyone at Yarn Cravin' wishes you and your family a Joyous Holiday Season and best wishes for a Happy New Year!
