National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Arwen designed this cowl in honor of Kimberly Swartzlander, a Yarn Garden family member, who just completed her radiation treatments. Many of you have never met Kim because she is working behind the scenes keeping track of all the yarns coming in and out of the shop and making sure the yarn on the floor is in the best possible place. Kim is the cornerstone of Yarn Garden, who's memory and knowledge is put to the test every day when customer's call looking for one more skein of a yarn they purchased from us eight years ago!

The Kimberly Cowl pattern is free with purchase of yarn and Yarn Garden is donating $2.00 for each ball of Kid Seta purchased to breast cancer research.

Materials: One ball of the light and airy Kid Seta by Cascade Yarns in color# 838 rose pink.
