Upcoming Projects:


  • Scrap Along

Starts: March 6, 2020

Ends: Approximately May 6, 2020 (why approximately, well you know me and locking threads)


    • Rules:
  1. Must use “scraps” - what would qualify as “scraps”?
    1. Leftover Yarn
    2. Leftover Fabric (yes, you can sew a FO)
    3. Yarn that you are repurposing from its originally intended project (must also list in the Frog it Thread)
  2. FO can be knit, crocheted, sewed, etc.
  4. Needs some pattern suggestions?

You get the idea. If you have other suggestions, please add them to the Ravelry Scrap Along Thread. There is no shortage of projects. Not sure if something qualifies? Just ask.

Get creative and have fun!


  • Cloudesley Along. Thanks to a very awesome discussion during the Must Love Yarn virtual knit group, we are hosting a knit along for the Cloudesley Pattern.
    • Come join us for this KAL. It will start on Friday, April 10, 2020 so there is plenty of time to check your stash or order some yarn from Must Love Yarn. A WIP will be allowed if you are just so excited and can’t wait until Friday.
    • The KAL will run to approximately June 15, 2020.
    • Some suggestions for yarn (Note pattern calls for fingering weight yarn, some of our suggestions are for sport or DK weight yarn, please check your gauge if you are substituting a different yarn weight):

There are of course many other yarn options (even so many more available in the online store). These are mostly summer type yarns
