When Yarn has a purpose!

A few weeks ago my talented and patient husband created some 'peg' racks for hanging hanks of yarn. Ever since then they have been waiting for a special shipment.

In the meantime they held anything that I wasn't quite sure where it belonged.

Today a box came filled with this lovely yarn with purpose. Manos del Uruquay are now full members of the WFTO, the World Fair Trade Organization. I received a small shipment of some of the beautiful yarns and some patterns. I have always been a supporter of the small independent businesses that do good for their local communities. This is a great way to support a group of rural women who are using their local resources to create a beautiful product and a reliable source of income for their families.

Come a see the lovely to figure out where to put all that 'random' stuff.
