So, in the process of recovering from Spring Forward, I've recalled that March Madness will be starting soon...and then it's all about the rankings and the stats and the brackets and the last 2 minutes!

I'll be honest...I'm not a basket-ball fan.  Much to the dismay of my Kentucky-based family...that will probably get me disowned.  And I have a simple solution for March Madness, too!

See, what we do is each team 100 points, 2 minutes, and 1 time out.  The last 2 minutes takes half an hour to play anyway, and in any game worth it's salt, the last 2 minutes is all that matters.  The tournament could start Thursday evening, and be wrapped up by Sunday afternoon...viola!

However, March Madness can provide some extended periods of high-quality crafting time...regardless of what your fiber activity of choice might I say we celebrate the you b-ball widow or hoops fanatic!

So, from March 15th through April 6th, when you buy 2 skeins of KoolerKolors yarns at the Yarn Shoppe, you'll get 1 (of equal or lesser value) free!
You can download or print the PDF coupon below!  If you're having trouble with it, e-mail me at and I'll see it to you direct...and dribble on!!

June 1st!


I’ve just registered for the first of this summer’s events!  

The 5th Spring Yarn Knit Out & Crochet Community Event !  

This event will be held June 1st, from 11am to 4pm (June 8th, in the event of rain), and will take place in gorgeous downtown Denver, surrounding Bags by CAB and the Yarn Shoppe at 17thand Larimer!  This fair is also held in conjunction with the street chalk art festival, so there will be LOTS to see and do and eat! Click the link for additional details.

I’ll be unveiling 2 new, exciting yarns at this event, and have a drawing for a set of stitch markers, and keep an eye out here for a coupon for the day of the event!  (if you ‘d like to have the coupon e-mailed directly to you, e-mail me at, or use the contact form
letting me know!)


And in the meantime, I’ve been busy test-dyeing samples
of several potential new yarns.  We’ve had some exciting results with these
yarns, while I’m only adding 2 actual yarns to my inventory right now, we’re
also experimenting with wool roving and top for spinning and felting.
