Introducing Full Circle!

Some of you might have noticed a new yarn at Knit Picks today. You can call it happenstance, a coincidence, or simply a happy twist of fate – no matter how you look at it, I think it is a wonderful sign that our newest addition to the special reserve line up, Full Circle, was launched on America Recycles Day!

Then, we went out to dinner with Adam and a couple of his friends. Yummy, yummy Vietnamese food!
