The Yarn and I Have Been in Negotiation

First it informed me that it was fingering, not sport, thank you very much. (Sorry, I said we hadn't seen each other in a while.)

Then it let me know that any edging involving faggoting with double yarn overs was out of the question. "Might be OK for cotton," it sniffed, "but, I'm not going there. Not unless you want something that looks like the bars on a jail cell window"

I proposed trying diamonds. The yarn is thinking it over. It's not exactly crazy about the first version I offered, but it's willing to consider alternatives.

my yarn negotiates with me as well. And when I ignore it, it tangles beyond belief. I have learned to listen to the yarn...

Sometimes it's good to know who's boss!

LOL! That is a conversation worthy of Franklin and Dolores.

Last week I downloaded all the Knit Picks podcasts and am beginning to work my way through them. In #2 she talks about how much she likes your book :)

Woot! I didn't know that about the podcast. Thanks for the tip.
