Was that the cry of a hapless skein of Merino, caught in a tangled web of crime? Did someone threaten to take a club to a batt of BFL? Was your silk fiber "purl"-oined while it was out roving around town?
Nice to know that we can depend on our super-powered friends to keep the world safe for knitters everywhere.
And from whom, praytell, are these intrepid heroes guarding our precious yarn?
The direst threat of all, the claws of the Catwoman! How chilling!
These wonderful characters are on a mural at 19th and Mission streets.
Here's some of what they are protecting for me, a couple months of thrift shop purchases.
11 skeins Nicole Poodle, Rusty Brown Boucle 50 gr, 83% Mohair/17% Acr = $3.49
8 skeins Pingouin Paprika, Black/White Boucle 50 gr, 57%Acr/35%Wool/8%Poly - $3.99
5 skeins PlymouthEncoureColorspun, Black/Multi 100 gr, 75%Acr/25%Wool - $3.99
Also shown are a 2 oz. skein of deep red/deeper red thick-thin wool handspun and a skein of Trendsetter Dune, Black/BrownMuli/MetallicGold 50gr, 41%Mohair/30%Acr/12%Viscose/11%Nylon/6%Metal - 2 of the best out a bag of odds and ends, along with the yarn in the hat below. The rest of the bag was leftovers, although usually at least half a 50 gr. skein, of novelty and wool yarns. Altogether there was nearly two pounds of yarn in the bag for $3.49.
I dug this out right away and made this hat, too impatient to wait until I had enough thrift shop goodies to take a picture. Stockinette, because this thick/thin, multi color handspun yarn didn't need any stitchwork to look great.
Meanwhile, keeping the world exciting for knitters, Phat Fiber's giveaways continue to offer great goodies from talent fiberistas. Check out Silver Sun Alpacas and enter for a chance at a three month batt club membership!
