A recent study indicated, that Yarn and thread gives off certain Pheromones that actually hypnotize women and cause them to purchase unreasonable amounts.When stored in large quantities, in enclosed spaces, thePheromones, (in the yarn,) cause memory loss and induce the nesting syndrome, (similar to the one squirrels have, before the onset of winter, i.e. the storing of food,) therefore, perpetuating their species and not having a population loss due to their kind being cut into pieces and mixed with others. Sound tests have also revealed, that these yarns, emit a very high-pitched sound, heard only by a select few, a breed of women known as "loomers." When played backwards on an LP, the sounds are heard as chants, buy me, loom me, and wind me into a ball ". In order to overcome the so called "feeding frenzy effect," that these yarns cause, one must wear a face mask when entering a storage facility and use ear plugs, to avoid being pulled into their grip. (One must laugh, however, at the sight of customers in a yarn store, with WW2 army gas masks and headphones!) . Studies have also indicated, that aliens have inhabited the earth, helping to spread the effects, that these yarns have on the human population. They are called "YARN STORE CLERKS". It's also been experienced, that these same Pheromones, cause a pathological need, to hide these yarn purchases, when taken home (or at least blend them into the existing stash.) When asked by a significant other if the yarn is new, the reply is, "I've had it for awhile." Author Unknown

Gearing up for Fall

Fall will be here soon and I am busy crocheting my fingers to the bone getting my hats and scarves ready for cooler weather. It's hard to think of wearing them when it's sweltering outside.

I have one new design so far this season. It is a combination of my flapper design and a beret. It has my signature flower and tassle on one side and the beret slouch on the other. I wore the first one around the house all day when I completed it. I felt sooo cute! I hope my customers love them!

Today I am working on plain hats. I don't really know if I can make a plain hat. My hands might just create a flower without my consent, but I'm gonna try.

Check out my new design in my Etsy store and tell me what you think.

Have a great day!
