    Knit...or Macrame? You Decide!

    Our new releases in knit are taking a vacation in the Bahamas (they weren't ready for the cold weather), but we have a project suggestion that has been recommend to us by many of our followers before: Macrame! We've been told by our knitting fanatics that macrame makes a great project for anyone who loves yarn and is willing to try new adventures. This craft certainly isn't new, but it's 2019! Be bold and try your hand at new techniques and trends. You might even find a way to revamp this older craft into eclectic and fun decor projects.
