Cyber Monday Sale Update #2

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I just wanted to let you all know that our IT team was working on the website last night making some changes and updates to get it to run faster.  There was a brief period last night when only 75 colors were showing. Now, all 450+ sale colors are back on the sale yarn page and they're all 25-35% off until 11:59pm PST tonight.  The site should be running much faster today.  We're very sorry about the slow load times yesterday; we know that must have been really frustrating.  Thanks again for being so patient and supportive! Have a great day! -Alisha
