Will you be my Valentine?
Love,
Yarn
Yarn never judges, never tells you your butt looks fat in those pants, or that you are having a bad hair day. Yarn always loves you and is always there for you!
Today only save 14% on all yarns!
Excluding consignments, clearance, and Heart Check kits.
February is American Heart Month
Did you know that heart disease kills more women than any other disease?
The kits are selling so fast we just ordered more yarn!
We wanted to help the cause so we designed a fun, simple cowl kit. You get the pattern, yarn, and a super cute bag listing some of the reasons knitting is good for your heart! The cowl comes in three sizes.
It is the perfect gift - finished or as a kit - to remind the women in our lives to get our Heart's Checked!
25% of the proceeds from the kit sales will be donated to the American Heart Association.
We have limited supplies!
