March Newsletter

Posted by Marianne Graves on

As I write, it is 56 degrees and sunny, the high today will be 74 degrees. I can’t get the smile off my face. I know that soon enough it will be summer and with it the heat, but today, and apparently all week, we are in for delightful weather. Come grab a fresh skein of spring-inspired yarn.  Make a memory to hold or to share.  

Our schedule is full here at Yarn Therapy. March means shipments rolling in and project planning. My year of sweaters is off to a good start. I actually finished the Stone Point Poncho and am buried in two sweaters, a cowl, some mitts, socks and a Christmas Stocking. Time flies! What's on your needles? Get your yarn on!
