Yarn art is everywhere!

1. Yarn artists are crazy talented and make me feel like a total slacker.

2. I want to own a yarn store in a big bad way. I can’t afford one and have no time to make one a success, but boy, I think it would be fun.

3. I already knew this, but this weekend just reconfirmed my finding – that knitters are supremely nice people. I have yet to meet a rude knitter who makes me want to shoot her the bird when her back is turned.

4. Japanese sweater patterns are ├╝ber-cool, but will require all my concentration to figure out the basics of amount of yarn needed, needle size, etc., because the patterns are, yanno, in Japanese.
5. I need more yarn.
