Next up: YARNTOONS by Sara Kay

My needle crafting life has turned in a new direction with my burgeoning interest in creating art doodles, painting, and  working on whimsical illustrations. This new passion is spining out into a fun side project called  YARNTOONS by Sara Kay.

After my baby girl was born in 2015, I developed De Quervain’s syndrome in both wrists and couldn’t crochet or knit for awhile which left me heartbroken and afraid I wouldn’t be able to stitch ever again.

Thankfully, I learned about it and started to rest my wrists and learned to hold my sweet daughter with my hands in a different position, and the problem cleared up. It still flares up if I do extended stitching sessions, but thankfully it’s become very manageable. Phew!

While resting my wrists, my design energy was going crazy so I had to channel it into a new direction and discovered creative joy in learning about drawing and painting. One thing led to another, and I started doodling and lettering lots of goofy puns and yarn-related jokes and fell in love.

I opened a Society6 shop where you can actually purchase my YARNTOONS artwork pieces on mugs, t-shirts, pouches, and more! It’s so much fun to make these products with so much personality and yarn pride, and the products are excellent quality. I know because my darling husband bought me a pillow and tote bag as a surprise. He’s a good one.

To celebrate YARNTOONS, I’m offering a little freebie for anyone who loves yarn and coloring. A printable coloring page! Just print from the PDF link below, color, cut out along the black lines and frame for a kooky and fun 8 x 10″ piece of yarn-tastic artwork!

I hope you enjoy this fun little project when your hands need a break from crocheting!

  9. I’ve also had De Quervain’s in both wrists, and it’s no fun! The worst was when I had to get a cortisone shot and spend 3 weeks in braces with no crochet allowed. I’ve had to learn to take it easy and rest my hands more often, leaving me more time to browse Ravelry. I’d love to be one of the lucky winners of Poetic Crochet!
