Happy St. Patrick’s Day to All. Thank you Allison for brightening my morning coffee with this newsletter. Looking forward to hearing more from you and others here. No changes so far, we are both okay. Stay Safe my cyber knitting friends.


Thank you for blogging! You always brighten my day and do so even more during these unsettling times. I got my latest order yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed checking out the skeins of yarn last evening and mulling over what they will become. Stay well and please find some time to knit.

Hi Allison, this is a wonderful treat! I'm working from home for at least two weeks. It's awkward and a struggle to stay focused. So, I knit a bit, then go back to work. Your family picture is awesome!


You started out as a strictly on-line business (when I read your post about possum belly yarn all those years ago, I just HAD to have it!), and I have no doubt you will continue to flourish. Thank you for continuing to provide yarn for a pleasant (sanity saving) distraction during this difficult time. Blessings and good health to you and yours.


You provide such great service and always have the best selection of yarn. I'm an introvert anyway, so online shopping is ideal for me! Thank you for what you do. Knitting and crocheting are my therapy, and I think we all need therapy with all this stress!


Knitting is always my fun and relaxing time! And your blog adds another smile to the day. Thank you!

Thank you for your social responsibility and for perking us up with your blog!
I just received my Opal minis - better than I could have imagined!


I’ll commit to reading and commenting here each day. My local yarn shop is Churchmouse Yarns and Tea on Bainbridge Island. Supporting both of you is easy, you carry different yarn lines. Luckily, you both have a strong online presence.


Like Jessica, I’m an introvert & SSYC is my main provider. I have 2 LYS within a mile of me but this area is very congested. It’s become difficult For me to walk that far most days & neither has convenient parking (in areas where there’s either no on street parking or it’s almost always full). So you & Webs (for yarn you don’t have- occasionally Jimmy Beans) are my main sources. You’ve always given superb service. The one time you forgot one item from an order, I received an email from you about it before I’d even had a chance to open the package & notice it myself. On every Facebook knitting related group I belong to, whenever someone asks for suggestions for a reliable online source, I’m usually one of 5 or 6 to recommend SSYC. That’s how much we all value you.
I think you were pregnant with James when I first started buying from SSYC. I’ve loved seeing not only SSYC growing & offering so many different lines but also the occasional family related post. I’ve loved seeing your boys growing from babies into school aged children.
