ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
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.
