Stay in the Loop on All Things Knit­terly

Creative Knitting - - THIS JUST IN -

A Knit­ted Legacy Women were leav­ing the rice fields of Uhaj, Ifu­gao in the Phillip­ines to find more work un­til two in­trepid women, Candy Reyes-Ali­pio and Aurora Man­gu­bat-Suarez, came in and taught them to knit. Now, with the in­come raised from hand­knit mon­sters, toys and scarves through the Knit­ting Ex­pe­di­tion brand, they are able to stay in their an­ces­tral lands, pro­vid­ing a sus­tain­ing legacy of com­mu­nity for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions.

Yarn and Go It’s a grow­ing trend that doesn’t seem to be slow­ing down any time soon—yarn stores hit­ting the open road in trucks, RVs and pop-ups. From the Yarn Over Truck in Cal­i­for­nia to Yarn­byrds RV in Ohio, at least eight mo­bile yarn stores can be found in the United States, in places such as open-air mar­kets, fes­ti­vals and park­ing lots, all with the hopes of rais­ing cu­rios­ity and at­tract­ing new knit­ters. Keep an eye out for fibers rolling into your town!
