About Us

Once upon a time, all the way back in 2000 and late, Megan-Anne and Jac lived in a world of knitted scarves and crocheted granny square blankets made of acrylic yarn. It was a sad...

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.

Some games earned their spots on the 2016 blanket because Jac, me, or both of us love it. Like Psychonauts. Other games are here because you love them. They found their way onto the the final list by virtue of being household names in the industry or revolutionary in some

I kidnapped a llama. I'm a llama-napper now. The incident, which ended with me and a llama in a hot tub, happened last weekend while Megan-Anne and I were in Pittsburgh. It was magical. We shared an Irish coffee and a slice of chocolate cake. But I'm getting ahead of

Posted By Jacquline Cappuccino  Posted On 22-Jun-2016

This tiny kitten in a human costume is ruining all of my plans. I love my niece, she's adorable and appreciates fine yarns like a proper fiber connoisseur. (Nothing calms her down faster than a trip to a yarn store.) But, she's put a kibosh on my decision to spend
