Arizona Yarn and Tempe Yarn now have Highlighter Tape in stock!!!!
This tape is great for keeping your place on patterns, it is easily removable and reusable. I have found that most of the time, one strip of it works for my whole pattern. It is something I keep a roll of in my knitting toolbox and use all the time. Come get some today and you will be so happy that you did!
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. We have always prided ourselves on helping out within our community and in that spirit, we are asking for our community to help out one of the local domestic violence woman's shelters. The Chrysalis Shelter that is located in Phoenix and is in need of lots of items. Donation items can be dropped off at either Tempe Yarn or Arizona Yarn from Saturday, October 18th to Sunday, November 30th. Please consider helping out this wonderful organization and the local community.

It started out when Braeden and Alyssa said, "we want to start a business." Over the next month, Braeden (11) and Alyssa (9) came up with a name and formed a business (Between the Colors), purchased yarn and dyes, defined their color ways, and hired their employees (cousins/siblings).
Last week, "Between the Colors" dyed their first run of hand dyed 100% superwash Merino fingering weight yarns (400 years).
After some training and coaching, the co-CEOs took over and directed and supervised their employees while doing their own dyeing.
Their end product turned out amazing (no bias here) and is now available at Tempe Yarn.
At Tempe Yarn we love our local suppliers!! This month, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, two of our talented local artists, Kathy of SDG Creations & Krysten of Gherkins Bucket have volunteered to give back to our very own Knitted Knockers Charities. Gherkins Bucket has a hand dyed line of pink yarns that were dyed specifically for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Krysten is donating 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this "pink" yarn.
This "Pink" line of yarn is available only at TYF
SDG Creations is donating 100% of the proceeds from all of her creations that sell in the month of October. This includes her jewelry, buttons, shawl pins and stitch markers.
Please help support our local artists and Knitted Knockers Charities.
