Rob, you are killing me!!!!!

Rob won't quit posting about Jitterbug, the newish Colinette sock yarn. God knows he's the number one Colinette 'ho, but I gotta go fondle some Jitterbug.

Here are the colors I like:

Castagna (Italian for Chestnut) & Copperbeach.
Rob calls them masculine and neutral, so that must mean I'm his butch b*tch.
Forever & always, Rob : )



I have no intention of making socks out of this stuff, I'm dreaming of a long fitted lacy cardigan/jacket thing. It will break the bank won't it?

Carla, Mistress of Public Policy, & I will go on a Jitterbug hunt after Christmas, we'll bring Zingerman's & we might bring beer.

I spent a good portion of the morning making wee felted snowballs with third graders & tomorrow I felt with second graders, so now I'm going to cuss like a drunken sailor on leave & crack a Guinness. Brilliant!

Gawd, I adore you. On so many levels.

And get this--we had a mail order inquiry for yarn for Latifah. So we're making up kits for colourways (over a dozen so far, maybe 20+ combos) and we're gonna make one up for a model and then feature it on the blog...kickin' it old school. You should see the combos Matt and SueH put together today. WOOOOF!

They have Jitterbug at the Point in NYC, but I was strong (read: broke) and I resisted. Not easy to do, i assure you.

mwah!

Geez. That is some beautiful yarn! And I was just about to start a yarn diet. I guess tomorrow really is the best time to start diets...
