All About Yarn owner Pilar learned to knit and crochet from her grandmother at the age of 5. She learned at first by watching, and then by imitating, and eventually, she was skilled enough to make her own patterns. When Pilar later immigrated to the United States with her husband, tasks such as learning English, working, and raising her family filled her time. Now that her children are grown, though, she spends her time doing what she most enjoys: knitting, crocheting, and sharing her skills with others. She conducts lessons with patience and care, and she also stocks a wide variety of yarns and instructional books.
