This week we invite you to find inspiration in our most cherished loom-knit patterns, to make a personalized Zodiac scarf for a loved one, to enter to win your dream stash and more!

We hope you enjoy this edition of the Weekly Stitch.

If March comes in like a lion, will it go out like a lamb? (Please?)

We sure hope that if March begins cold and stormy that it will end sunny and warm, but the key word here is hope.

Even if this saying is more of a rhyme than a weather predictor, you can have fun with it and make these amigurumi.

We craft to inject the personal into the day-to-day and to infuse our lives meaning. The yarn we choose speaks to us because we can instantly visualize it as a sweater or a scarf or an afghan, or simply because we like the color. Color also speaks to us on a more mystical level - often symbolizing deeper meanings: red for love and passion; white for purity; yellow for cheerfulness, to name a few.

Lion Brand's Design team takes this concept further with it's Zodiac scarves collection. Learn more about the meaning behind the Zodiac scarves.

Blumenthal Family

Gabby Blumenthal, 20 year old college student and the daughter of Jack Blumenthal, Senior VP of Lion Brand Yarn Company, shares her story of growing up in the family that started Lion Brand Yarn Company. She recently attended the annual Craft and Hobby Association trade show with her Dad, and talks about her experience.

When I was a little girl, my Dad would come home from work, loosen his tie and tuck me into bed with a story. Now, my Dad's stories were far from conventional. For one thing, he was terrible at make-believe and couldn't tell a princess from a portal. So, telling me all he knew how to tell, my Dad would talk at length about his own life-long adventures. I can't tell you how many times I heard about how he got stuck in an international airport, or when he was babysitting a cat and, not to ruin the story or anything, but the poor cat died.
