It’s Not Yarn Porn! It’s Yarn Love!

 Friday is perhaps the best day of the week. It’s even better this week, because not only was I looking forward to Saturday and Sunday, but also today, Memorial Day. I will call my grandfather, a World War 2 vet, and I will probably write a rotten poem about war.

 Most of the weekend has consisted of me

  • swimming (in our ice-cold pool)
  • tanning (after getting OUT of the ice-cold pool
  • knitting my t-shirt
  • ignoring what came in the mail on Friday

  What made Friday such a great day was a fat little package in the mail. In Monday’s post, I complained about not getting my Yarn Love? Well, this was it, and I ripped into it, hands shaking a little.

 

 The package was lovely. Chocolate brown paper lovingly wrapped around a prewound yarn cake—thanks, Kate, that was super thoughtful of you. I don’t have a winder of my own.

Spunky is a great name for this colorway, but the word vibrant also comes to mind. Vibrant and somehow tropical, like the jungle. Very fresh and perfect for summer.

 I get all melty just looking at the pictures. However, Kate sent a little extra, something that she didn’t have to do, but she did, and since I’ve primarily been using rubber bands as stitch markers? This was a really nice touch.

6 beautifully crafted stitch markers. My personal favorite are the two in the middle, but they’re all amazing.

Thanks, Kate, this package is absolutely lovely. Best prize ever, in the whole world. Made me a Yarn Love fan for life!

    One word: GORGEOUS! Y’know, my mom often teases me about ‘knitting porn’. My parents buy me copies of Knit.1, and one time she asked me if I read the articles in them, and I said “Sometimes,” or something like that. She said, “You’re like a guy reading a porno! You look at the pictures but don’t read the articles!” 🙂
