            Why local yarn stores matter

            Saturday is Local Yarn Store Day, a day to visit and celebrate your local yarn store.  We have tons of fun things planned, from yarn tastings and trunk shows to new products and prizes all day.  and I invite you to come and see what's special for this day.  But first, why is LYS day even a thing?  I'm more than a little biased, but here's why local yarn stores matter.

            Obviously, with a local yarn store you have a chance to see and touch all the yarns in real life.  You can compare colors and hold the skein up to your face to see what best suits your complexion.  Instant gratification too.  See it, touch it, and walk out the door with it.

            A little healthy anticipation

            I've really been looking forward to the warmer weather.  This spring has been a long time coming, but I think it's finally here.  I have been anticipating it so long, looking for tiny buds on trees as I pulled my coat tight around my neck, and I got thinking about the balance between anticipation and more

          • April 03, 2019 Good Mood Shawl - April First Friday
            Good Mood Shawl - April First Friday For April First Friday, indulge yourself in luscious Wooladdicts Happiness. 
            This is the yarn that makes you go "aaaaahhhh" I could tell you all day that it's a super soft cotton blend, but that does absolutely nothing to convey what Happiness feels like. It's like sun on your face and a warm sand at your feet. It's so utterly soft that you really do have to feel it to understand. Believe me when I say tell you that you want to wear this stuff right next to your skin more
