Advertisements on this website help to pay for the costs of keeping this website running so that I can continue to provide a service to my visitors.
I try to keep the advertisements as unobtrusive as possible. I do not allow pop-ups or pop-under ads. I use an ad network (Google DFP) to manage the ads and serve a variety of ad types such as Google adsense, Amazon, Ebay and other ads. I try to have a mix of ads that are of relevant content to the page and to my visitors.
I also accept advertisements from yarn shops and small business. These will run in a rotation along with other ads. Please contact me for more information. The ad rates may change on a monthly basis.

No Follow Links
Much of my website is made of hand-picked links to websites and information that I think are of importance to my audience and are relevant to the content of the page. These links have been gathered and selected by me and are not paid for by advertising.
Any links that are an advertisement are identified as such.
Due to Google’s policy on links for paid advertisements and updates to Panda and Penguin algorithms, ads are set up to comply with Google policy. Ads are now set up as: rel=”no follow” or are clearly marked as ‘Advertisement’.
