At Angelika's Yarn Store, we know the coronavirus outbreak is impacting customers that we serve every day. The safety of our customers, as well as our employees are #1 in our minds. I am keeping our website open for shopping. But the walk-in store is closed, for now. Currently, I am the only one coming in to do shipping & receiving. If you don't see what you need online, here is my contact me page.
Be safe! Virtual hugs to you all - Angelika
Welcome to Angelika's Yarn Store! Established in 1987, I've been around a while! I am just as involved now, as I was the day I stepped into the world of retail sales and support to hand knitters, crocheters and machine knitters.
In my opinion, in this time of high pressure jobs and long work days, juggling family is feat only a magician should try! Crochet and hand knitting is a source of therapy. Just 15 minutes before retiring at night will relax the muscles in your head and body, and allow you to go to sleep a little sooner. Balance your busy life with the opposite end of the spectrum, which is in your favorite chair and your favorite knitting needles or crochet hook and a delightfully soft or colorful yarn.
My Advice: Keep to simpler patterns. Knit and crochet therapy is supposed to be fun and relaxing. And if that means nothing but scarves in stockinet stitch, so be it! Don't stress this part of your life with complex patterns. Bring a smile to your eyes, fingers and mind with simple patterns and beautiful yarns. To me, it isn't necessarily fancy stitches and upscale shapes, it is simple shapes, easy stitches and beautiful, colorful, quality yarns that makes for a therapeutic session and a happy knitter or crocheter.
