Lion Brand Yarn
 

Dear Friend,

Wow, did we hear from you last week! Thanks for all the feedback - we take your point of view seriously.

A customer sent us this great letter about the new Lion Brand Mystery Boxes: "I love the way you do the mystery boxes. Many stores group so many possibilities, that I have no idea whether I'd use the yarn. Lion Brand gives you a hint about what's in the box. Much more fun than not knowing whether I'll get pink chenille or Olympia Amazing." We love hearing feedback like that, keep it coming!

You also told us loud and clear that you wanted better choices for our Crochet-Along. So guess what? We went back to the drawing board and put together a new line-up, including last year's 2nd place runner-up ... cast your vote again and let's rock this Crochet-Along!

Lastly, if you tried to access Barbara Breiter's blog post last week and could not, please try again: "Should You Carry the Yarn Along the Side or Cut It?"

We hope that you enjoy this very carefully edited edition of the Weekly Stitch!

With Warm Regards,
Your Friends at Lion Brand
