What to stash this week: smuggle some yarn

Rebecca of Fuse Fiber Studio has stocked her shop full of colors that can chase away the winter blues. And as a special thank you to Indie Untangled readers, use code “COZY” for free domestic shipping on all orders over $100 from now until December 31.

Next year, Countess Ablaze is launching a bi-monthly yarn smuggling operat-, I mean, a subscription club that is gloriously subversive. Inspired by the nickname the Countess’s postie gave to her — Pablo Yarnscobar — the Yarn Cartel features some incredibly tempting themes, starting in January with Prohibition and ending in November with The Opium Den. 

To get in on this, all you need to do is decide between one or two skeins of fingering or DK, choose where you will be accumulating your stash of goodies (which includes a broadsheet newspaper to hide behind as you talk up Yarn Cartel to potential Yarn Mules) and then begin stalking your package delivery person. 

You have until December 31 to accept the Countess’s offer.
