I get all the best mail

So there’s this thing where I have an idea, then I talk to some of my very favorite yarn makers, then they send me yarn, then I play with it.  I believe technically it’s called ‘my job,’ but really it feels like way too much fun to be a job.

Two of the latest yarns to arrive (they’re for next year’s book) are from Blue Moon Fiber Arts.
