Damn, I love yarn!

There I was minding my own business when all of a sudden the UPS guy walks into the shop. I figured it was just another shipment of yarn that was going to have to be put away. It was late in the day and I didn't feel like putting it away because I was feeling pretty tired.

I opened a mystery box and this is what I found


It was my birthday gift from Mr Yarn! That is why he is Mr Yarn! because he buys me yarn (at retail mind you) even though I own a yarn shop. He understands the need for me to have this kit. I wanted this kit! The pattern is by Jade Starmore and the beautiful yarn is Alice Starmore Hebridean 2ply.

This is what it is going to make

I am lucky.

Yay! Mr. Yarn Man understands! (There's a rhyme somewhere, if the rhythm is right.)

Mr. Yarn is the bomb! Especially, cause he has to know how much yarn you have in your stash, and he still bought you more! I love Mr. Yarn!

Julie said...

We all love Mr. Yarn! You are soooooooo lucky! But so is he! Maybe you could clone him for the rest of us.
