Keep Calm and Carry Yarn poster
Awesome, my girlfriend would love one. Not sure i’d want to pay 20 bucks for it though.
Simply having yarn is a great help to keeping calm. Yarn in your pocket? What could possible go wrong?
No yarn? then make sure that you can tell a good one. That will do just as well.
I always carry yarn in particularly fraught situations, like when traveling. In fact I make a point of exercising my right to knit when I fly. There’s something calming about a ball of yarn and part of a garment on a set of knitting needles, and me with my gray hair and general grandmotherly air.
Pity. When I saw the title and picture, I was hoping that this’d be some MacGyver-ish book about the 1001 odd-but-awesome uses of yarn in everyday life.
I’m a little disappointed; I thought it said “Carry Yam,” which is mysterious and alluring.
I wish it came on a t-shirt!
Surely ‘Keep Yarn and Carry On’ would have been more phonetically pleasing and consistent, whilst conveying the same message?
I find it helps a lot when my husband’s driving too fast.
