Lion Brand Yarn

  By Kids For Kids: July 22, 2005


This is our second issue of By Kids For Kids (BK4K)! 

We hope you'll enjoy reading and crafting from our second issue as much as we've enjoyed creating it for you!  We've developed three new simple and stylish patterns for you plus a great little idea for a project for babysitting or party favors!  

Fun fashion doesn't have to take hours or cost a bundle!  Notice the new feature to the right -- the Quick Tip.  This section features clever, fast ways to use our most popular yarns to create a look that is uniquely YOU! 

Want to know where you can find the yarns we're using?  Yarns like ours are carried at most popular craft stores.  Try the store locator to find places near you that have all the stuff you're looking for!

Quick Tip!

Want a fun way to spice up those old tennies?  Just take out the old laces and replace them with Incredible ribbon yarn.  The result?  Truly INCREDIBLE!

iPod Sox

Whether you love your iPod or just want to protect your investment, these easy-to-make knit Microspun iPod socks are a hip way of shielding your iPod from harm.  

They're a snap to create for gifts or in different colors to coordinate with your outfits!



User Instructions:  Just slide your iPod into the sock to keep it safe and warm. Slide it out to dock or change playlists.
