Happy Mothers Day!

Happy Mothers Day to all of you who are mothers, who have mothers, who aspire to be mothers, who've lost mothers, and to those who have loved us like mothers. Thank you to those who gave birth, those who adopted, those who have given a mother's love to a child (or adult) who needed it. We wish peace to those whose children live on only in their families' hearts and we rejoice with those whose children are at their side.

May you have a joyful, peaceful, and loving Mothers Day with those you love.

Yarnivore will be closed this Sunday, May 12 so that our staff can spend time with their families.
We'll be back on Monday, May 13 so that we can spend time with all y'all!

Featured Yarn and Patterns!
Here's a unique new yarn from Cascade - Paradigm Shift is a 100% cotton, worsted weight yarn with long, and I do mean LLLLLOOOOOOONNNNGGG color runs! The color run is actually a little longer than the yardage in the 200 g/371 yd cake. This means that in a project needing less than that, like many accessories, you won't have a repeat at all. If you want to do a larger project needing 2 or more, you'll want to make sure you get cakes where the outside of one matches the inside of the next.

Here are some lovely one-skein shawls perfect for Paradigm:

The Tip Jar

Did you know that your shirt affects the yarn you buy? Because your shirt is ALWAYS in your peripheral vision (unless you're looking straight UP), the color of the shirt will worm its way into your yarn purchasing decisions. So - we suggest wearing a shirt you actually LIKE when you buy yarn.
