It's time for some more medal madness during the winter games in Sochi! Probably many of you remember what we did for London in 2012
, so we couldn't help but bring back this exciting tribute to Team USA as they prepare to win big in Russia!
This is a particularly exciting year for us, as many of the Ski and Snowboard athletes featured in our Stitch Mountain
book are headed to compete in Sochi! We wish them the best of luck and hope they come back with medals in hand! If you don't have a copy of Stitch Mountain
yet, you can snag one now and have fun knitting some wintery designs inspired by the athletes you are watching compete in Russia!
Since the Olympics kick off tonight with the opening ceremonies (be sure to watch for Imperial Yarn
in the opening ceremony sweaters designed by Ralph Lauren!), we thought today would be the perfect day to give you this year's commemorative color from Lorna's Laces - Sochi 2014!
Sochi 2014 is a beautiful mix of gold, silver, and bronze, the perfect wintery hue to celebrate the Winter Games!
It's available in Shepherd Sock
, Shepherd Worsted
, and also in Pearl
, a stunning bamboo and silk blend that shines like the medals themselves. If you want a little bit of everything, we also have a lovely bouquet
And it gets even better! For every medal that team USA wins, we will be dropping the price per hank on every weight of the Sochi 2014 yarn, and the bouquets. Here is how it will work:
- For every Gold Medal that Team USA wins, we'll drop the price 10 cents.
- For every Silver Medal Team USA wins, we'll drop the price 6 cents.
- For ever Bronze Medal Team USA wins, we'll drop the price 3 cents.
It's pretty simple. When Team USA wins... you win, too! We'll be keeping track for the next two and a half weeks, bringing the price down as Team USA celebrates victory. We hope that you will join us in celebrating the games, because with "Medal Madness", the athletes won't be the only ones that win! And remember, it doesn't matter what the yarn price is when you place your order - we'll adjust the price and ship it out right after the closing ceremonies. We promise!
*As you probably surmised, we will be shipping all of the skeins out after the closing ceremonies on February 24th. The final prices will be applied to all orders placed between now and then! (And please remember as well that this is a limited edition color - once we sell out, we're out!)*
