Today’s your last day to grab this Cuyahoga Valley National Park-inspired colorway from Jeanne of Destination Yarn. It’s just in time for National Park Week, which kicks off tomorrow with free admission to any park. Even if you can’t participate, know that your stashing will celebrate, with 10% of all sales of this colorway donated to the National Park Foundation.

While Kathy and Hannah of Despondent Dyes can’t reveal how beautiful the yarn is for their next Faux Holidays Yarn Club, they are posting some sweet sneak peek photos. The next installment is inspired by National Wine Day (isn’t that everyday?) and includes one skein of fingering weight yarn on a sparkle base, a pattern, two other carefully chosen items, one of which is locally sourced and… some other (non-alcoholic) things. Signups close May 1, so run on over to the website, without spilling your glass of rosé, of course.

What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow? While you ponder your answer, head on over to the Slipped Stitch Studios website, where Laura and Co. are debuting two brand new Monty Python designs, and a second chance at an old favorite. The collection goes live today at 9 a.m. Pacific with ready-to-ship products.
