When we found out Vogue Knitting Live in Seattle was canceled, we did a lot of pouting. Yes, we agreed it was the right choice, but dang we had a lot of yarn! And were so looking forward to hanging out with fellow knitters and dyers. So we threw ourselves a pity party and then we got an email from Partners in Health, the charity we donated to last quarter:
“The current reported case fatality rate, whether 3.4 percent or not, cannot be used to predict how this virus will devastate many areas globally where there aren’t existing, functioning health systems that can respond to an aggressive infectious disease.”
So, we decided to put our extra inventory to good use and raise some money for one of our favorite charities.
We will be donating 15% of sales made March 13-15 to Partners in Health. That is $4 per skein of yarn!
We have so much new yarn! New colors of Vintage Vixen and Mohair Moxie, Atomic Love, Six Month Half Life, and You Say Tomato, I say Bloody Mary. There is also new Ultra Merino Fingering in Breakup Bangs and So Much Emotional Baggage They Made Me Check it At the Gate.
Kathy bought a knitting machine and programmed it to knit fair isle patterns of her very own design! And what could be better than project bags made out of this fabric? We only have a handful of these!
We also have some super fun screen-printed bags that have one of our favorite sayings on them: “Yarn and Tacos Never Stood Me Up!”
We have a new colorway dyed up on our Single Ply base, I am NOT Doing This Sober. We also have two extra special one-of-a-kind yarns! We’ll Always Have That Weekend in Bellevue is a super squishy silk and mohair blend, naturally dyed with avocado pits. Indoorsy is an alpaca wool blend that was spun just for us at Eweful Fiber Mill in Halsey. It is farm to fiber festival and so soft!
