Hemophilia is a bleeding disorder that affects around 400,000 people in the world. There is currently no cure. People that have hemophilia are not able to produce certain proteins, preventing their blood from clotting as fast as a normal person.
The profits from the sale of this pattern kit will be donated to the Texas Central Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation’s Hemophilia Walk on behalf of Team Awesomesauce in support of Bryen Lackey. Bryen is a thirteen-year-old boy with severe Hemophilia B (famously carried and by Queen Victoria and passed to her male heirs) that enjoys doing things that other boys his age does. He is active in his local Boy Scout troop and has dreams of earning his Eagle Scout badge. He is an avid video gamer and enjoys Terreria, Pokemon, Super Mario Bros., and other video games where he can expand his imagination and creativity. Bryen is active in his local youth bowling league and has won several trophies and awards. He learned to crochet from his grandmother and is knitting his first hat. He is also a weaver and has made several potholders and a scarf.
Bryen and the rest of Team Awesomesauce thank you for your support. To learn more about the 2017 Hemophilia Walk, please visit this link.

Once upon a time, a long time ago, two friends were on a road trip and, as friends are wont to do they began building sky castles while they drove. A small part of the conversation went something like this:
(Betty Kay) “You know what you need, Fairy? You need a store exclusive yarn!”
(Fairy) “Yeah? That sounds like fun. We should have an entire range of colors, like the best box of crayons EVER!”
(Betty Kay) “Yes, and you should come up with a catchy name for it… something to tie in with the shop… how about Fairy Tales?!”
And thus, somewhere between here and there the idea began to grow. As the friends traveled, they made up lists of colors and color ways and projects that all could be made with these imaginary yarns. Socks, hats, cowls, baby sweaters and shawls all seemed to be knitting in front of their eyes (the landscape was pretty dull, these daydreams were really just in self defense!)
Fast forward a couple of years…
One day, while working away in her yarn shop back home, another friend overheard Fairy telling someone else about these dreams and thought “I could do that!” and so MORE sky castles began to appear as Fairy and her other friend began to make plans for colors and weights and skeins.
We are so VERY THRILLED and proud to announce the release of our VERY OWN SHOP EXCLUSIVE YARN!!! Dyed here in Texas by Safronie Skeins, available in an ever growing selection of colors (90 at last count).
