Dear Friend,

We hope that you're taking advantage of the warmer weather to rejuvenate! Did you know that activities like knitting and crocheting can also have long-lasting health benefits?

According to the Washington Post, researchers have found that people who engage in activities like crafting are 30-50% percent less likely to have memory problems than those who do not.... a good reason to get busy with those hooks and needles all summer long and build your skills at the same time.

This week we introduce a new yarn, Modern Baby, a super soft yarn with a downy feel, in baby colors guaranteed to surprise and delight.

We hope you enjoy this edition of the Weekly Stitch!

With Warm Regards,
Your Friends at Lion Brand

An easy-care yarn with a chainette construction for an extra-soft, downy feel. The palette consists of crayon-like primary shades, along with rich pastels and neutral tones. Modern Baby will be your new favorite yarn for babies, toddlers and children. It has a similar feel to the merino, alpaca and cashmere blends but with an anti-itch non-allergenic, easy care fiber blend of premium acrylic and nylon.

Franklin Habit: Splitting Yarns Send to a Friend Share on Facebook Tweet this

Popular writer/illustrator/knitter Franklin Habit joins us for his monthly column combining humor with the unique point of view only a yarncrafter possesses.

You're toodling blithely through a normal day when suddenly WHAM! A memento of forgotten love hits you right between the eyes.

I was wriggling around under the work table trying to retrieve an errant ball of silk when among the thriving community of dust bunnies I found a crumpled lump that turned out to be a mitten pattern bought in a shop seven years ago.
