This lovely box appeared on my doorstep yesterday.
It’s the first installment of a new yarn-of-the-month club offered by the wonderful The Perfect Blend yarn and tea shop in Saugerties, NY. Each month, the color of the hand-dyed skein will reflect some aspect of New York’s beautiful Hudson Valley. This month, the inspiration was Saugerties’ own lighthouse.
The lighthouse is also a B&B and has a gorgeous deck on the river side where the public can bring picnics or just sit for a while and enjoy the views. It’s well worth the visit at any time of year and a fitting theme for the first skein.
Because I love my local yarn store so much, I of course booked the entire year’s worth of deliveries, which means I’ll be treated to additional goodies:
Along with the yarn, cowl pattern, postcard depicting the lighthouse, and note from Mary, the store’s gracious and delightful owner, I received a set of jeweled stitch markers in a little canvas pouch, a paper ruler, and a della Q project bag. I’m so excited to work with this gorgeous yarn. I’m also thrilled to be able to support my local yarn store and Hudson Valley dyers.
The yarn-of-the-month club is open to anyone. Click the links above for more information on The Perfect Blend and how you can get in on this awesome program.
