What do you call…

… that big, unwieldy mess of yarn that virtually spills out of the middle of your skein?

Yarn Barf
What is yarn barf?

There. Now you know.

I promise that I’m not making this stuff up.

Mike the Leprechaun wants to wish you a very Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Since I’m away at the Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet Festival, I won’t be cooking the traditional corned beef & cabbage… so if you are, could you eat some extra for me?

    Yarn Barf!! Love the name, though not when it happens! This just happened to me yesterday, so I’m laughing b/c now I know what to call it. Thanks for making my day Stacey.

  2. DeeAnna SAYS...

    bahahahahhaha! Yarn Barf! That’s hilarious!!!! Thanks for sharing. Now the next time a skein does this I’ll be laughing instead of crying. 😀

    Hope you have a great trip!

    • Giggle… a great name always helps, right?

      Pittsburgh was fabulous… working on getting together the photos, now!

  3. I love Patrick! He is absolutely gorgeous. I received my parcel in the post today – thank you SO much Stacey! I will send you photos when I’ve done something from the book. The little bag is adorable! <3

  4. Cute name! I usually say that my yarn gave birth! I almost never pull the end out without some sort of mess! Lol! 🙂

    Hahaha! Where did you find that dictionary entry, then? 🙂
