Darn Good Yarn

Here is a fun offer from Darn Good Yarn – a monthly yarn package with a skein of their eclectic yarn and another goodie – for only $10.00 a month. The first month I received a nice hand-dyed worsted silk, a set of knitting needles, and a crochet hook! The second month more hand dyed silk – lace weight – and a couple of cute stitch markers. Also included each month is a crochet and a knit pattern for the yarn. They offer recycled silk and provide a sustained income to their yarn producers, dyers, and their kits are packed by members of the Schenectady ARC. They also offer fun yarn bowls, clothing, and more on the website.
