Hey all you Harry Potter fans we just got in the Harry Potter sock yarn from Opal today. We have been anxiously awaiting this as a lot of you have too.

To celebrate, we are having a one day only sale this Saturday, October 4th on the HP yarn. We’ll give you 15% off your purchase of Harry Potter yarn and, if you come dressed as a character from the series, we will enter your name in a drawing for a “mystery prize” you will get 25% off!  (we changed our mind and thought you might really like a bigger discount)
