Featured Yarn and Pattern
Berroco's Remix is made from 100% recycled fibers (nylon, cotton, acrylic, silk, and linen). This worsted weight (#4) yarn is comfortable fiber blend for south Texas and works up into useful projects that you can wear year-round. Yarnivore carries 8 colors, but we can also have Berroco drop ship any colors that we don't have in stock. Machine wash, lay flat.
Remix works up beautifully in the Cohansey Cowl by Mary Lou Egan! It's easier than it looks, as the design is made entirely with slip stitches! $6 on Berroco.com.
Hours this week!
As always, online and curbside sales remain available.

The Tip Jar
Google Translate is not good at translating fiber art terms. But there are so many really cute patterns in non-English websites! What's a knitter/crocheter to do?
Here are some sites to help:
Knittingfool.com's translations page will translate terms from Dutch, French, German, Spanish, Japanese and more to English.
Nicki's Homemade Crafts has a page with a chart of terms including nine languages.
