Hi friends. Here I am again. Lots of totally badass stuff has been happening! I opened a new business.
More accurately, I changed the name and structure and focus of my former business. But still.
We went solar!
This Sunday, the Fitter Knitters -- (a relay team composed of me and four of my New England and New York State knitting and blog friends) -- will be running the KeyBank Vermont City Marathon. I know! Can you even believe it? We have team shirts and everything! Ours are sapphire, and you can order your own if you want, in whatever color you want. We specifically designed them to be generic enough that any fitter knitter can get one if desired, and we can use them for various events -- not just tied to this one race.
The company was great to deal with, so I am happy to recommend them. They didn't give me anything (except great service) to say so.
BONUS: If you ask, they will put your name above "Will Run For Yarn" on the back. Somewhere kicking around on my iPhone or in Facebook or somewherrrrre, there is a selfie of me wearing my shirt, but damned if I can find it.
But I don't want you to get too distracted by all of that, because back to the title of this post:
It's a HUGE YARN GIVEAWAY!!!
