Each month you can declare a skein of yarn to knit/crochet/weave to its very end (only 3 yards or less can remain). Let’s use up those older special skeins (purchased before 2019) - and maybe win a new beautiful skein of yarn from one of our sponsors along the way!

Contest, News & Notes
- Ann Weaver is donating all pattern sale income to ACLU through end of June!
I ran a little pop-up contest over Memorial Day weekend on Instagram. Check out #getoutsideandcraft
It's SO fun seeing what you were up to! Let’s keep it going all year!
Life in Focus
2019 goals- 10 patterns + Build Muscle
- #30x30stopstroke challenge going well. I've exercised 30 minutes a day everyday this month!
- Design- I've been experimenting with a new shawl shape that was giving me fits. Then I stopped and focused on my goal--10 patterns. Not specific patterns. And I asked myself what if this was easy? That flipped the switch and now I'm swatching a new idea I’m psyched about. Why make it hard?! It's not necessary!
On a Happy Note
Quote of the Week
Life is denied by lack of attention, whether it be to cleaning windows or trying to write a masterpiece.
