If you haven’t heard, this past weekend was the 5th Annual L.A. County Yarn Crawl. With over two dozen stores participating this year, it was a veritable yarn-topia for the fiberati (hurrah for made-up words)!
Since Valentine’s Day is almost upon us—I’ve been thinking about the last time I fell in love. It was about two days ago…and probably a couple days before that…and a few days before that.
Now before you think me a cad, hear me out.
“This isn’t the cure for cholera.”
That’s what I often joke to friends, students and customers when they are frustrated learning a new technique or stymied by the project that they’re working on at the moment. Maybe their crocheted blanket looks more like a granny trapezoid than a granny square. Maybe the magic loop method is seeming more mystifying than magical. In any case, I often remind, “This isn’t the cure for cholera.”
