Good morning Darn Good Yarners!
I told you that you would have a lot of opportunities this month to name some yarns. I have four more for you this morning. To submit your ideas, just leave your response as a comment below! I numbered the yarn’s in their captions so you can just type something like 1= xyz, 2=abc etc.
This is a quick one so make your entries this morning and tell your friends to get in on the action
Have a great day!

I love Canada (did you know I went to school not too far from the border? Go Clarkson University!) and I’ve had some good times there (which we’ll save for another blog post). But I love Canada even more now because that’s where Daphne is from!
Who is this Daphne? An entrepreneur, an artist, a knitter, a yarnaholic, a fantastic photographer and a fellow Darn Good Yarner!
I wanted to share pictures of some of the items she made (including Darn Good Yarn’s very own 20,000 Leagues Under the Purse).
Did you know you can find her at craft fairs around Prescott Ontario too?! If you’re going to be in the area and want to check out (and buy) one of her purses here’s her contact info. Even if you’re not in the area and would like to purchase one of these simply darling bags (Remember the holidays will be here sooner than you know!!!) just shoot her an email and she’ll get you set up and ship it to you!
Daphne’s info is : firstname.lastname@example.org 613-925-3028 and she is located in Prescott Ontario Canada!

Almost like sweaters but depending on where you are in the world, more versatile! And the great thing is that since most of our yarns (like the Premium Recycled Silk Sari Yarn) are lighter, these are great options in case you need to layer over to keep warm moving from the indoors to the outdoors! They also tend to go long enough to go past your patootie a feature I like in case I wear low-cute jeans!
Also, if you ever have a question about how many balls of yarn to get for a pattern, email us! That’s what we’re here for!
