Happy 2015, Yarnies! You’ve made it to the new year, so I’m sure you have a lot of resolutions you’d like to make it through this year as well. In case you’re still wondering what you should resolve to do this year, I have an idea for you. Make a resolution to actively put crocheting and knitting closer to the top of your list.
You heard me. This year, I challenge you to pick up those hooks a little bit more often and work up new, exciting projects. It’s always worth it to try new things and, while you’re at it, attend a yarn event here and there!
There are always plenty of options, especially when you look into yarn and craft stores that are near you. So many stores offer classes here and there, or host Saturday daytime events. All you have to do is go out and look! Shoot us a tip and let us know what kinds of classes you’re taking, and maybe we can inspire more people to look for them as well.
For the time being, though, our list below will have to do. This year, really focus on your goals and resolutions so that you can make crocheting, knitting, and/or crafting a bigger priority in your life. You know it sounds like fun!
