Do you or a loved one have a serious addiction to all things yarn? Do you buy more yarn than you need, knit more than you can gift, or crochet with all your spare time? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you may be a yarnist! Being a yarnist, yarn artist, is not something to be ashamed about, but rather something to embrace and even expand. Yarn isn’t just for knitting and crochet anymore, check out what else you can do with it.
Yarn can be used for so many crafts, life hacks, and home décor projects. Just like these rainbow vases, you can use yarn to create endless possibilities for common home décor items. It’s the perfect accent for your home and creativity!
Yarn is associated with popular crafts like knit and crochet, but you don’t have to limit yourself! You can create hybrid craft projects by using yarn in place of other materials. Macrame, for example, typically uses craft cord, but it’s nothing that a bulky yarn can’t replace! Update this retro craft with a new, soft spin.
If you’re a classic yarnist or want to dip your toe into the yarnist life, try knitting! With just your needles and hands, you’ll walk 2-by-2 into home décor updates, wardrobe refreshes, and gift giving triumphs. If you’re an absolute beginner, try a book like 1-2-3 Knit. Knitting can be as easy as it sounds.
Another one for the traditionalists, crocheting is as fun as it is fulfilling. You can do whatever you want with it. Do you need a new rug? Crochet it. Have you been searching for the perfect sweater? Crochet it! Does your home need a bit of revitalization? Nothing a crochet afghan can’t fix. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned yarnist, Afghans For All Seasons is perfect for living your best yarn life.
There are endless ways of becoming a yarnist. So, what are you waiting for? Buy a skein, or five, and show the world your best yarnist self. Don’t forget to tag us @leisureartsinc and #leisurearts so we can see what’s happening in your crafty corner!
