Super Saver Saves the Day!


Donna Hornschemeier emailed this amazing story about Super Saver yarn to us a few days ago. She agreed to let us share it with you.

The windshield wipers on my car broke earlier in the week. Last night I took my son to a meeting. Half an hour in it started snowing. Heavily. By the time his meeting was over the cars and road were covered.

Before I had left home, I had checked the weather. There was no rain or snow in the forecast. Having no other choice, I pulled out my work in progress bags and cut a couple strands of yarn I was using to make a blanket and tied it to my wipers. By pulling on the yarn a little bit each time, my wipers would engage and go through their cycle. Thanks to your Red Heart Super Saver yarn I managed to get home safely. It was a distance of about 14 miles.

We're proud of Super Saver and that it was able to help Donna see her way home in the storm! It's a relatively new multi shade of Super Saver in neons and black.

If you have an interesting story about any of the Red Heart yarns please share them in the comments. We'd love to hear about it!
