Our Newsletters Come In 3 Different Flavors

Many of you (over 1 million!) know about The Weekly Stitch, our newsletter that features Lola, articles about knit and crochet techniques, new yarns, tip of the week and a charity story.  If you don’t currently subscribe, sign up on our home page by entering your email address. Once you enter your address, you will go to a page where you can subscribe to our other newsletter.

Our newest newsletter is called YarnPlay.  It comes out once a month that includes patterns that are a bit off the beaten path.  Rather than sweaters or afghans, we offer more whimsical ideas for yarn crafting.  Next month we will offer a really fun rug!  Sign up here for YarnPlay.

If you want the inside scoop on what’s new in patterns, subscribe to our weekly new patterns newsletter. This week is our largest week this year, with 31 new patterns announced. Since we don’t have space in The Weekly Stitch to show every new pattern, you’ll get this listing with photos when you subscribe to see what the latest and greatest patterns are. Sign up here for weekly new pattern updates.


Show Your Stash in Your Facebook Profile Picture

On Monday, we changed our Facebook profile picture to a picture of our yarn stash.  We want everyone to celebrate their stash and show it off in their Facebook profile picture.  Changing your profile picture is easy.  In case you forgot how, here is a quick reminder:

First, go to your profile and put your cursor over your profile picture.  In the upper right corner of your picture “Change Picture” and a little pencil will come up.  Click on the pencil to bring up this menu:

Select “Upload a Picture” and then browse to find the picture on your computer.  Now you can upload a picture of your stash–whether it’s big or small, messy or organized–and participate in Show Your Stash Week.
