The LoveCrafts team will openly admit that every one of us are yarnaholics. Which, is most definitely what brought you here, right? You’re so obsessed that you’re seeking yarn anonymous meetings, and you’ve started communicating to people through yarn puns.
Christmas happens to be the perfect time for yarnaholics because you’re given an excuse to buy more yarn (like you needed one, let’s be honest). Your dad needs a new scarf, so you simply have to buy that Jade Sapphire Mongolian Cashmere that you’ve been lusting over to crochet him one, or your best friend would love some Christmas mittens, so of course you’ve just added some gorgeous hand-dyed Malabrigo Lace to your LoveCrochet shopping cart. You don’t need to hold back your love of all things yarny with us, in fact, we want you to embrace it and we’ll even reward you for it.
