Yarn ballsKnitting and crocheting can provide relaxation and personal expression. This time on YarnCraft, we talk about your yarncrafting space–what inspires you, how to organize your tools, and how to make the most of whatever space you have. We share stories from listeners like you, as well as more interviews from the Knit & Crochet Show that took place a few weeks ago. Zontee talks to writer/designer Margaret Hubert and Mary Beth Temple of podcast Getting Loopy!, as well as the very funny writer/designer, Lily Chin.

Patterns mentioned in this episode include:

Zontee just finished her amigurumi elephant, and Liz is trying some new yarns that will be out this fall–stay tuned for more information in the upcoming months!

Stash This: Ideas for Your Crafting Life – Loom knitting was such a popular topic that we wanted to share some of the great resources out there, whether you are new to looms or a pro.
