Dear Friend,

Save 20% off orders of $35+ on LionBrand.com through January 19th!* Shop now!

We're deep in the throes of winter and many of us are wondering how to bide our time indoors during these quieter, colder days.

We'd like to suggest that it's a good time to hone the skills you currently have -- see our selection of afghan patterns below -- and/or to acquire new ones such as taking up felting.

Enjoy this time and remember that as you acquire new skills and perfect the ones you have, you gain the ability to personlize your yarncrafting, letting "you" shine through. More on that next week ...

With Warm Regards,
Your Friends at Lion Brand

*Coupon code "winter2014" will be automatically applied to qualified orders.

I was sitting in an airport, waiting for the flight to a teaching engagement, winding yarn. Travel with a swift being sadly impractical, I was making do with the back of an empty chair. Without warning, a screeching ninny plunged into view and grabbed at the unwound skein.

"So cute!" she screamed, jangling a fistful of wool in one painted claw. "Are you, like, doing some crochet or something?"
