YPF: Black and Gold Edition

I took a bunch of pictures today, but I’ll probably save some for later.

In honor of my new minimum wage job, which I start on Sunday, we’re going Black and Gold today.

During my field trip to Bloomin Yarns on Wednesday, I wandered the store a bit. I went back into the “felting room” as I think of it, and I reached out and touched a quite colorful line of yarn.

The feel of this yarn immediately made me go OOOHHH!!! Lemme tell ya – this stuff feels LIKE BUTTAH! It’s awesome. So soft! I was shocked when I looked at the label and saw what it was: 50% Super Fine Nylon, 50% Super Fine Acrylic. Super Fine, indeed! This yarn is going to grow up to be Pasha the Penguin. Probably multiple Pashas, but wish me luck!


I first saw this yarn at Bloomin Yarns. I resisted.

Then I saw it sitting on a table at the Lake for about two weeks. Mom had bought it at Bloomin Yarns.

When I went back next time, they were out. Then I did a dumb thing and browsed The Loopy Ewe. ACK!

In case you haven’t figured out who has hired me for a minimum wage job, there’s a clue in this last close-up. Have a great weekend!

Congrats on the job-y job. And the yarn haul. Damn TLE but she has GREAT stuff. I have an order on the way right now as a matter of fact.

Yay, new job! I had it figured out before all the clues, I was pretty sure; glad to know I was right. We'll want details at the next knit night!
