How to Trick People into Thinking Your Yarn is Goodlooking

Hi. I’m not dead. I am in grad school though, which is surprisingly close to dead as far as normal life goes.

There have been many changes in my life besides grad school. I have a ginger man I am rather fond of, along with two cocker spaniel dogs, and I went through a drought of little to no crafting. However, I have returned to it with a vengeance, as knitting and a bit of crochet seems to be on effective way to claw back what sanity I have between reading journal articles and writing.

I work at a chain craft store part-time, and decided I’d try out a new acrylic line we’ve brought out. I recently had a birthday, and thought it would be amusing to demonstrate how to make big box yarn look like some indie ombre hand-dye off Etsy. It’s actually pretty easy.

If we call it premium, do you think anyone will buy it?

It’s a cute yarn; it isn’t labeled as a chunky weight but at 3.5 stitches per inch on my set of 8s, I’d say it is. Using my niddy noddy, I transformed my awkward glasses wearing nerd into a indie princess.

I like my yarn like I like my women, in a plastic cup

Funny how it works, right?

Sorry for the disappearance. I’ll be around a lot more.
