#140 Finding Yarn When It’s Less Available In Your Area

Do you have trouble finding yarn where you live?

If craft stores and yarn shops are few and far between it can really limit your creativity and motivation to start new crochet or knitting projects. You’re certainly not alone.

In this episode of The BHooked Podcast you’ll hear from Caitie Moore, talented designer and crochet addict located in Cape Town, South Africa where yarn resources are a bit limited. In order to grow in her craft and pursue her passion as a designer, Caitie had to be resourceful to create patterns and projects she loves. She shares tips for sourcing and finding yarn as well as yarn substitution tips she picked up over the years. We chat about ordering online as well as some clever projects for those one or two special hanks in your stash that weren’t easy to get.
