Help Us Help Them

Yarn Nook is sponsoring a new community project this fall! We are knitting warm winter hats for homeless men in Acadiana. Our goal for this project is 60 caps for donation to St. Joseph's Men's Shelter. For every cap you turn-in, your name will be entered into a drawing for a prize. One name will be drawn each month in September, October, November and December. Please join us in this worthwhile project and help us to reach our goal!

September Knit-a-long

The fun and stylish Chickadee Shrug will be our knit-a-long project this month! We will be using the beautiful Pacific Chunky yarn by Cascade for this project ~ come by soon to sign-up and choose your color! Remember, Cascade yarns are 15% off this month.
