Together We Create!

Since the Knit Picks staff have all been at home these past few weeks, we, of course, have been knitting and crocheting up a storm! We all have different reasons for it – first and foremost, it’s something that we obviously love to do, but it also helps us stay connected to each other and to our online community, even if we can’t be out & about. So we thought we’d share some of our projects with you and would love to see what you are working on during this extraordinary time!

Of course, we’ve been working on our blocks for #WarmUpTogether! It’s been a lot of fun; for me personally, I’ve been rediscovering my love of crochet! While Warm Up America isn’t able to accept the blocks and other projects at the moment, we’re keeping them all safe until we come back together.

First up, Alison and Hannah talk about their history of developing new eco yarns. From past favorites like Full Circle to our recent Upcycled yarn launch, we’re proud of what we’ve been able to source and are always looking for new yarns to add to our collections.

Next, Erica and Kate share some insights into our subscription box program. Carefully curated boxes arrive at your door every month, full of lovely yarns and favorite patterns. …
