Will Knit for Tattoos
I spun this up Monday night. It's still thick and thin and probably a bit too spun, but it's soooo much better than I was before the class. Now to keep up the practice and (hopefully) the improvement :)
The fiber is from Lisa Souza... BFL I think?? I bought it a few months ago. The colorway is lime and violet for the perky podcasters of doom. This stuff is sooo long and very soft.
Besides all the beer, there was also the charming Yarn Harlot. She's even funnier in person than on the page and screen. Who knew she could do such a great Jamacian accent? (We were treated to a slightly more detailed version of the home renovation story, after someone asked if she had any more projects planned.)
I got all warm and fuzzy when she was talking about the great donation total from knitters to Doctors without Borders. The key to getting people to donate money, she explained was getting them over that mental hurdle that a small act, repeated many many times adds up to big change.
There was a pause as she let that sink in. Does any one in this room have a visual aid of this concept? she then asked.
