Have you ever wondered why your back ordered yarn is taking so long to get to you? Have you ever blamed it on pirates? Well, maybe you should. When I called up one of our distributors the other day to check up on the status of some back ordered colors, I was given an intriguing and altogether unexpected explanation as to the hold-up: pirates.
I know, I was skeptical at first too, but apparently pirates commandeered a freighter carrying a large shipment of yarn here to the US. It is unclear whether or not the pirates intended to use the yarn for their new knitting club, sell it for a profit on the black(and various other colors) yarn market, or hide it on an island where the largest stash on earth is rumored to be located. Regardless, I am now convinced that pirates do indeed knit and/or crochet.
Happy crocheting and knitting!
