On the first episode of YarnCraft in 2012, Liz & Zontee talk about their yarncrafting New Year’s resolutions. Let’s get organized, learn new things, and do more knitting and crocheting! This year is all about concrete, achievable yarncrafting goals here on YarnCraft, so be sure to share your goals for the year with us, here on the blog, on Ravelry, or by voicemail. Throughout 2012, we’re going to be checking in to see how you’re faring!
We also talk to staffers throughout Lion Brand about what they’re hoping to make, learn, and do this year as knitters and crocheters.
Then on Stash This: Ideas for Your Crafting Life, Liz & Zontee share ways that you can volunteer, fund-raise, and rally people in your community through yarncrafting. Find out why knitting and crocheting can help kids learn math, science, and problem-solving. Learn about one listener’s organization that’s fundraising through patterns.
On our next episode, we’ll be talking about trends for 2012 and Lion Brand’s new catalog. We’ll also share an interview with knitter/illustrator/photographer-extraordinaire, Franklin Habit. Tell us what you’re looking forward to making in 2012! Leave a message on the blog or email us at yarncraft [at] lionbrand [dot] com!
