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...

We’re embracing the Giving Tuesday movement this year by donating $1 to Child’s Play Charity for each skein of Lattes & Llamas Yarn you welcome into your stash from November 29th through December 6th. In addition to donating a dollar for every skein, we are running a sale for 10% off your total purchase with the code: TOGETHER. Child’s Play Charity was founded on the idea that when gamers give back, everyone wins. This week we hope that gamers, knitters, and knitting gamers will join us in making sure that every kid has a Merry Christmas no matter where they are.

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.

December MKAL: Rose Quartz
Posted By Megan-Anne Llama  Posted On 05-Dec-2016

I'm completely obsessed with Steven Universe right now. That's partially due to Mabel the Merciless being endlessly entertained by the theme song, but mostly because it's an absolutely amazing show. It makes me laugh, it makes me cry, and especially over the last year it's had a lot to say

Giving Tuesday
Posted By Jacquline Cappuccino  Posted On 29-Nov-2016

Some of you might notice that we didn't run any Black Friday or Cyber Monday sales this year. Despite what a strangely angry email accused us of last night, we weren't making a statement. We wanted to try out something a little different. Today, we're embracing the Giving Tuesday movement.
