New Year, New Theme, New Yarn


In 2016, Louet North American will donate 50 cents to Child’s Play Charity for every skein sold to knit/crochet a Geek-A-Long blanket! Yeah. You read that right. Every time a skein of GEMS worsted yarn is sold to a Geek-A-Long knitter or crocheter, Child’s Play gets 50 cents. Here’s some sweet math for you: If you knit 24 GAL squares with GEMS worsted yarn to create the official sized blanket, you will need 24 skeins. That means you get two squares out of two contrasting colored skeins while Child’s Play Charity receives 12 dollars just for you knitting the blanket.

Mention the Geek-A-Long when you place your yarn order. The best and easiest way is to purchase the yarn through your local yarn store or through Louet. This process also supports your LYS, so everyone wins. If your store currently stocks Louet’s GEMS worsted, they just have to mention that their customers are making GAL blankets when they place their next order. If your store doesn’t carry Louet, they can still get it for the whole store or just for you. Let your LYS know you want Louet GEMS yarn. Have the shop owner contact us and we’ll send them a media kit with all the Louet and GAL info they’ll need, including direct contact information for Pam Van Stralen of Louet, who will be handling the per-skein donations. I swear, it’s a majorly easy process.

Let your LYS know you want Louet GEMS yarn.

For those of you keeping score, this announcement was supposed to happen over the weekend. Instead, Megan-Anne and I accidentally got sidetracked planning a vacation to our hometown. Any other time, I'd apologize for making you wait to find out if you are one of seven lucky winners, but I'm not

Alright, so this is going to date me. Like, you're gonna read this and be like: "But, Jac, we thought you were super young and hip. Is everything a lie? Is this whole thing a sham? WHO CAN I TRUST ANYMORE?" Sorry, guys. Despite what my round baby face might

The fact that I'm not using all caps right now, I think, is a small miracle. Really, I'm showing a lot of restraint. (You're welcome.) Because what I'd like to do looks a little something like this: DID YOU KNOW THERE IS A VERONICA MARS AUDIO BOOK? Now, imagine me
