I’ve gotta rethink this blog thing.
Love them though I may, customers are interfering with my yarn hoarding.
Do you notice something peculiar about this photo?
No? Okay, how about this one:
That’s right folks, it’s missing.
I suppose I made a tactical error in announcing my new favorite yarn as Habu Textiles’ Bamboo. One day it’s there happily smiling at me with a come-hither expression the next day it’s gone.
Not to worry, I’ve been assured by my commander-in-chief more supplies will arrive soon. In the interim, we will all just have to survive on these succulent beauties:
Yeah, I know. They look like bathing beauties basking in the sun. I believe the technical term for this sort of attraction is “Homina-homina-homina”. It’s Hand Maiden’s Sea Silk and these skeins are the “off” dye lots. Fearless Leader, a.k.a. Darcy, ordered a little extra so customers could have more choices for the Tuscan Lace Shawl class with Amy Singer. Like the Bamboo, it’s completely RAI approved.
For the rookies out there, that stands for “Roll Around In”.
Such yarns include: Alchemy Yarns’ Bamboo, Joseph Galler Yarns’ Pashmina, ShibuiKnits’ Baby Alpaca DK, and Windy Valley Muskox’s Suri Alpaca. A yarn so scrumptious your first inclination is to rub it on every part of your body (for test purposes of course). Hence: Roll Around In.
I suppose I will just have to drown my sorrows in another company’s yarn. I’ll cope somehow.
