Interweave Yarn Fest 2019: A Crocheter’s Must-Do List

I love meeting crocheters at Interweave Yarn Fest. The halls of the Embassy Suites Loveland have comfortable chairs and nooks for gathering, and I always look for hooks in the hands of the people sitting there. It’s a great place to see what other crocheters are working on (and maybe recruit some new crocheters)! I love finding new connections in our community. Big yarn events can feel like they’re all about the knitting, but here are some of my favorite crochet-centric things to do at Interweave Yarn Fest.

Peanut butter and jelly. Peas and carrots. Chips and salsa. Yarn and beer. Some things were just made to go together.
