YarnSub News: June 2015

My dad's house has been empty since he died a few weeks ago, so I visit it regularly to make sure everything's okay.

On my last visit everything was definitely not okay. Someone had got into the house and pulled the dishwasher away from its pipework, leaving mains water flooding onto the kitchen floor.

The inevitable paperwork and heartache that has followed, along with arranging to have the house dried out, and the fact that it takes the whole day to travel there and back, means I haven't had time (or energy!) to put together the full YarnSub newsletter.

I'm happy to have been able to keep the new and discontinued yarns up to date, which are listed below as usual. But I'm hoping you will forgive the lack of article this month - and fingers crossed life will have settled down a little for next time!
