Win a lifetime supply of #yarn? Define, please.

Really, if you're having a contest to "win a lifetime supply of yarn" you have to define your terms.

What kind of yarn?

What's a lifetime?

How much yarn is enough?

Who am I kidding?

I would enter this contest no matter what.  If it's acrylic yarn, I would share it with my charity knitter friends, and all of us would make beautiful things for cancer patients and the newly widowed and also babies and African AIDS orphans, because That Is What We Do.  And no matter how "much" yarn it is, I am obviously a member of the SABLE club, (Stash Acquired Beyond Life Expectancy) so no problemo on that front, either.

It turns out the contest winner will get one $480.00 gift certificate to one of the big online yarn stores each year for 20 years.

I can live with that.  :D


  1. A piece of yarn walks into a bar and orders a beer, but the bartender snarls, "We don't serve your kind here!". The yarn is forced to leave.

    While sitting on the curb feeling sorry for himself, the yarn is suddenly hit with a brilliant idea. Working quickly, he ties himself into a knot and unravels his ends. Taking a deep breath, the yarn marches back into the bar and orders a beer.

    "Hey!" says the bartender. "Ain't you that piece of yarn I just threw outta here?"

    "Nope," replies the yarn, "I'm a frayed knot."

  2. Sell out! (J/K; go, you mad knitter, you!)

  3. I was in a craft store getting stuff for my daughter's school project and I just had to look at the yarn, which I have never done before. The best they had was some Martha Stewart merino wool line.


I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
