Beat summer boredom and join the Craft Yarn Council's Crafty Not Bored Month!

It's true. There's a holiday for everything. This one comes at the perfect time. It's the Craft Yarn Council's Anti-Boredom Month!

We're in the midst of the dog-days of summer. Gardens have been planted, holidays have passed, and the novelty of kids at home is definitely over. Why not indulge your creative side and get crafty!

All month long, the Craft Yarn Council is celebrating the fiber arts. Get out your knitting needles and crochet hooks and make something fun. Inspire new knitters and even teach them to pick up their sticks as a way to relax, unwind, and whittle away the day. After all, there are a lot of benefits to knitting.

How knitting can improve your health

This year, the Craft Yarn Council encourages you to knit or crochet your favorite food (nom nom nom)! What will you make? Pizza, candy, popcorn, sushi, watermelon, pineapples, and even cheeseburgers are perfect projects to knit for #craftynotbored
