Abandoned and Orphaned...

Yarn, that is.

Here at The Crafty Lady, we're rather fond of yarn.  Thick, thin, natural fibres or synthetic -- we pretty much love all of it (even if we tend to play favourites from time to time!)

So it makes us sad when people put in a Special Order (S.O.) for yarn and then, having had several calls and messages left to tell them it's here and would they please pick it up...they leave it in the shop -- sometimes as long as a year.

And it makes us sad when we see odd balls...orphaned from the pack because they're the Last of the Dye Lot.

That's why we're starting the New Year off right -- by trying in earnest to find these yarns a new home with you, our crafty, yarn-lovin' customers!

First, there's a full bag of S.O. yarn that needs to find a good home -- Sirdar Big Softie in a warm-your-heart red (Colour #358 - "Norsk"), perfect for more cozy toques and cowls, but there's enough here for a sweater!

51% Superwash Wool
49% Acrylic
50 grams = 45 metres (49 yards)
Regular Price: $6.50

Sale Price: $1.63

As for those Yarn Orphans -- there's a variety of single balls and skeins available, including the classic Berroco Vintage, a medium-weight (#4) wool-synthetic blend.  Pair up the colours for a striped scarf or cowl...or use a single ball for a toque or a pair of toasty mittens:

52% Acrylic, 40% Wool, 8% Nylon/Polyamide
100 grams = 199 metres (218 yards)
Regular Price: $11.50

Sale Price: $2.88!

It's cold outside.  You've (hopefully) finished your holiday knitting and crocheting.  Now that you've warmed up family and friends, the long winter evenings are the perfect time for creating things that will bring winter warmth to souls who really have been abandoned or orphaned.  Help us find homes for these yarns...and from your needles and hooks to the heads, hands and heart of those in need.

Tidings of comfort and joy to you from 
Lori, Anne and Margaret.
 Happy New Year!
