    Gaze upon the glory that is... THE DOMIKNITTER!

    Kristy Glass. You know her. You love her. Kristy was one of the first people to sign up for Yarn Heroes, and it goes without saying that she took the theme and FLEW with it. Kristy's electric personality and huge heart provided a steady beat while we put Yarn Heroes together. Not only has she come up with one of the greatest costumes of all time, but Kristy has gone above and beyond to make for a great cause and we can't wait to share the story!

    Make & Do Crew's Jessica Coppom and the "Granny Gives Back" Hooded Blanket!

    Dear reader: You've made it through an intense weekend! We hope you had a fun, safe, comforting Thanksgiving and avoided any Black Friday stampedes. We gave you a break from Yarn Heroes on #GivingTuesday, but we're back with one of the most fabulously creative forces for good on the internet: Jessica Coppom of Make & Do Crew. Jess is a yarn craft master, but her work goes beyond just yarn. Visit her website for all sorts of interdisciplinary crafts! She'll show you how working with yarn can be a gateway to much more. We were so thrilled that Jessica donned her "Miss Make & Do" costume for this interview, where she tells you more about what goes into so much Making and Doing!

    Show Us Your Moral Fiber - A Charity Campaign Slogan

    LB: The Granny Gives Back Hooded Blanket is one of the most amazing designs I've ever seen. Certainly an amazing addition to the great patterns our Yarn Heroes have made this season. What inspired it?

    Make & Do Crew: I wasn’t sure what I was going to make for Yarn Heroes until I came across Project Linus—a charity that gives blankets to kids who have been abused, hospitalized or otherwise in need of a good dose of support. I was so inspired by their story that I instantly knew I wanted to design a hooded blanket that would feel like a safe place for a child to recede and literally feel wrapped in love.

  • Presenting the #BonbonBears by AllAboutAmi!

    Sweet golly, look at these #BonbonBears! Ahh! Too cute, AmiRight?

    (It's the #BonbonBear Gang's World... You just crochet in it.)

    You Can Get a Lot of Life from a Little Bonbon!

    Just when I thought it was going to be a mopey Wednesday, in swoops Stephanie from AllAboutAmi to brighten up the day with these colorful, cuddly, clever creations. I will admit that I am absolutely fascinated with Lion Brand's Bonbons and the amount of creative inspiration that can come from just 10 grams of lovable yarn. Stephanie seems to feel the same way.

    "I thought they looked so cute and I was itching to use them for a project!" says the amigurumi guru. "The first thought that came to mind was to use them for amigurumi, and I thought it would be so neat to be able to make one ami per bonbon, with the possibility of 8 different amigurumi with one set!"  I just love Stephanie's ability to breathe life into even the smallest amount of yarn, unlocking the cuteness potential of each little Bonbon!

    Flat Is The New Round

    But Stephanie's innovative approach to these Bonami (chuckles? anyone?) doesn't end there. Unlike the usually globular, space-hungry proportions associated with amigurumi, Stephanie thought "it would be cute to make a flat teddy that could be attached to a keychain and toted wherever you go!"

    (Listen, guys, you know I'm going to Make. Your. Keys. Look. Great.)

    Get Your Bonbon On! Save Big On Little Bonbons Till August 5. 

    In honor of Stephanie's inventive creation, for a limited time only (two weeks, in fact)  we have dropped the price of our Bonbons to $5.99!  Until August 5th, 2016 you can get Beach and Nature Bonbons at $5.99 per pack. Look at 'em!
