Welcome to A Call To Yarns!
A Call To Yarns was started in 2011 by me (Hi I'm Joseph and I'm a knitter!) as a way to share my passion for the fiber arts...
Today, aCallToYarns is run by myself and my wonderful wife, R. Together we seek to grow in our fiber arts skills as we provide quality handmade items to friends and family and supply our Etsy store.
Join us as we crochet, knit, spin, dye, cook and rescue miniature schnauzers!
I love to knit, although I started out crocheting. Recently, I picked up spinning and dyeing and, someday, I will pick up weaving. I admit that I am solely responsible for pulling my wife, R, into the fiber arts last year and now we live in a house stuffed with yarn...
I love to drink tea, bake gingersnaps, and take photographs. I am an avid blog reader and that is how I found Stephanie Pearl McPhee, whom I adore:
...the number one reason knitters knit is because they are so smart that they need knitting to make boring things interesting. Knitters are so compellingly clever that they simply can't tolerate boredom. It takes more to engage and entertain this kind of human, and they need an outlet or they get into trouble.
That is what this website is all about - R and I engaging ourselves -- and hopefully a few readers as we try to pass on some knitting and life lessons... We want this to be a place for people to read, write, and laugh. Welcome to our roller coaster, enjoy the ride...

Around the World…
There comes a time in each fiber artist’s life where their output begins to exceed the needs of the immediate group of friends and family. Having arrived at this point, we hope our store can help to provide comfort and warmth to others as we send pieces into the world.
