Craftsy's Daily Deals has a fantastic offer that I decided to take advantage of. Not only do they have great classes, but they sell materials and such at a great deal too. In honor of October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, they have stocked this lovely yarn from Lorna's Laces in Flamingo Stripe colorway. Lorna's Laces donates 20% of all skeins sold in this colorway to Breast Cancer Research. Normally this yarn would be $26 a skein, but on Craftsy you can get it for just $20. I know what you're thinking - "Megan, you're cheap! What are you doing posting about a $20 skein of yarn?" And normally you would be right. But, I am a big sucker for a good cause.
Hope Shawlette pattern for free! The pattern was designed for using 1 skein of this yarn and normally would cost $6 by itself. So, not only are you saving on the yarn, you also get the pattern free and you're helping a great cause at the same time and that is a winning combo in my book.
Don't want the yarn but love the pattern? Go here and click on knitting to the left and the pattern will be in the top 20 best selling. I think it's a super cute design and easy to boot so I'm excited to tackle my first shawl :)
So, hurry over here to snag a skein of this for yourself while it's still available. And check out the other deals they have going while you're there - they post new items all the time!
