Hi everyone! I switched things around and had to post my T Stands for Tuesday this afternoon since I was out running some errands this morning before the next batch of weather hits us. Can you believe this winter? We had another 8" this past Sunday, and this afternoon the next storm of snow, then sleet, then rain, then back to snow again is supposed to start any minute and last until Thursday. Totals? Glad you asked! Another 4-6"!
We are running out of places to pile this mess!
Anyway it is a good afternoon to sit down with a cup of tea:
Since I finished my DD's hat and scarf while she was home, I'll be working on my scarf this afternoon. Some of you might remember that this is the recycled silk yarn that I spoke about in previous posts.
Mango Moon Yarns, for advice. This excerpt from their website explains their mission, " At Mango Moon, we think knitting should be fun, and that we should try
to leave the world a little better than we found it. We work with the
Nepali Women’s Empowerment Group and a spinners’ co-op in Indonesia to
bring you yarns that are colorful and fun, and that help improve the
lives of the artisans who spin it."
Apparently, the (expensive) yarn that I had picked up at an Estate sale was at least 15 years old! The owner, who had actually taken over the company from the original owner made it her mission to make me happy. She not only contacted me personally, but she replaced my old, sad yarn with this new yarn at no charge! That is great service and the measure of a good company in my opinion! They offer yarn, kits, supplies, and patterns--some of them free. The yarn is top of the line, and if you are looking for excellent quality and service, you may want to visit their site.
Disclaimer: Although I did receive free replacement yarn, it was not in any way contingent on a blog post. This was solely my idea and my way of thanking the owner, Laurie Cook, for her kindness and generosity. Too many times we only hear about complaints; I like to give praise where due, too.
