AYE-EEEEEE!!! And what should I find in my post box this week but this lovely *proto-yarn* from the lovely Claudia…

I opened it while at a stop light in heavy traffic and heard the above sound, shouted LOUDLY in fear, from my truckmate (a male reporter!) when I pulled it from its envelope.

THIS chunk-o-Border Leicester Ram is more powerful than a thousand evil glares! Gotta get a whole Fleece STAT!

Thanks Claudia!

A huge THANKS to Caroline for this lovely pattern book and beautiful card! Caroline got a lowly ball of magenta Fixation from ChicKnits a while back and sent this in gratitude – merci beaucoup, oh gracious, generous one!

What?! were they thinking?! What was I thinking? I actually bought these honkers a couple of weeks ago – was my head up my, oh you know…

The cable on these is almost as big as the needle and STICKY! I actually tried to use them on the Mondo Condo and almost expired from exhaustion while trying to move the yarn down the vast expanse of plastic.

I can’t believe I bought the *#@$%$ thing…

The Addi folks also replaced their small gauge cables awhile back with a stiff, uncurling, plastic material and all hell broke loose in the knitting universe. I was one of the people banging my head against the wall when I opened a fresh pack and found foul play.

I want my old plastic back!
