This Week's Sale and Events

New yarn has made its way to the store. Opal Cotton a cotton/wool/polyamid self patterning yarn is here along with Opal's Mississippi colorway wool /polyamid blend.

We also have just got a shipment of Denise interchangable needles. We have both the blue original sets and the pink breast cancer awareness sets.

We also have a limited supply of Skacel's Knit for the Cure "Booby Socks"

Which leads to the next announcement . May will be Breast Cancer Awareness Month at The Taming of the Ewe. In addition to the automatic donations from breast cancer awareness products we carry, 10% of all sales of pink yarn will go to a local breast cancer group. We are still looking for a local charity, so if you know of one, please call us at the store. 256-782-9080.

On a personal note. I've almost finished my Ty-Dy tank top. This has worked up really quick, I started it April 3 and even with tax season I am almost done.
