Order Processing

I am back from rehab for double knee-replacement surgery. My mobility and energy are still limited, so my husband will continue to help fill orders until I'm back up to speed. Our Paypal invoicing option will remain turned off until I am processing orders.

Feeling very sad this morning — just received an email that Dale of Norway (Dale Garn) will not be distributed in the US any more. I have carried their yarn since 1975! So, I guess if you ever wanted to knit a Dale sweater, 'tis time to make the decision while I and my supplier Mango Moon still have inventory available. I have a huge inventory of Dale yarn and books. This is one of those staple yarns that is about indestructible! VERY SAD to see them go...
