The Chronicles of Yarnia

Thread Head

A hook in the hand, is worth two in the bush.

Don't put all your yarn balls in one basket.

Tarry not, for the hook awaits thee.

I always thought this would make a good name for a yarn store,

the Yarn Barn!

There used to be a store called the Yarn Barn in CA when I lived there. It was a wondrous place full of yarn.

Haha -- you just showed me that I had repeated myself! I used the "Too Legit to Knit" in the long list and then put it on here again, thinking I had just seen it for the first time. Give me a week and they will all seem new to me again. Short term memory is not working too well! But that just makes life more interesitng! :D
