It's October

Yep, there's a nip in the air and the leaves are starting to turn. That means it must be Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

For the last few years, we've dyed a colorway called Flamingo Stripe to benefit breast cancer charities. We always donate 20% of our proceeds from this yarn. Susan B Koman, Walk for a Cure and American Cancer Society have all received gifts from us. So have some smaller groups recommended by knitters like Breast Cancer Angels.

We'll continue to do it as long as we keep selling the yarn. We've been shipping lots of it out to your LYS and we have plenty here if they need more. We want to keep all our breasts happy and healthy.

Thank you....from a 6yr breast cancer survivor with a recurrence found Sept 30 with routine mammogram. Nothing life threatening because of the latest digital mammo's and research money from generous donator's such as yourselves! Thank you from the bottom of my strong, alive beating heart!

Normally we do it in sock yarn, but we're happy to do a special order. Just ask your LYS!
