Introducing The Yarnit
Have you seen The Yarnit? It’s a new toy for crocheters and knitters that allows you to be mobile without worry of your balls flopping all over the place? Where ever you go, your balls go! Ingenious!
While at Creativ Festival in April 2015. I was working for the festival as the Social Media Director and the Inventor of The Yarnit was scheduled to appear at the show as an exhibitor. I had bounced around her website and I thought, “Gee, that will keep my balls under control! I definitely have to check that out on the show floor during the show!”
Without exaggeration, this booth was all the rage. Crocheter and knitters would be stopping by our booth and have their Yarnit’s in hand. They were raving about it and I was salivating trying to find time to get over to the booth to see them in person.
I went over several times and the booth was crowded with guests excited and making purchases! I figured I would wait so I could talk without interfering with sales.
I finally got to speak with Kate about 1 hour prior to the show closing. What an inspiration! This product is 100% USA Made. Keeping jobs alive in the USA! Awesome possum!
When speaking to Kate, guests were asking here if Mikey has seen this yet. She had no idea who I was but made it a priority to figure out who I am.
- I really like the size of the ball.
- The storage contain under the ball what appears to just be a foot for the ball is an amazing way to store small items.
- The ball rotates inside without any friction!
- Changing the balls is quick and easy without breaking a sweat!
- The ball will sit in a cup holder in the car or just sit on it’s own on a surface.
- The strap that is provided that you can put over your shoulder is long and the perfect length.
- You can mix base colours with different globe colours.
I was hooked on the idea and figured others would be too!
What Happened Next
I pulled out my credit card and instantly bought 30 of these! I thought these make an amazing gift for the Crochet Cruisers for next year. I wanted to give away 10 of these per ship! So next year, there will be some pretty thrilled people to receive these as door prizes.
While I do get some people will say they have other solutions for this type of mobile device, that’s cool! I really like the concept and the thought put behind it. I love how it supports American Workers! That’s honourable in itself!

Now I have a tool that I can teach with during live shows and I don’t trip over my ball strands! Love it!
