Line too long at Starbucks? Ravelry down? She’ll stomp her pretty little self striping foot and throw a full on temper tantrum. Amid the histrionics, she’ll peek through her long lashes to gauge your reaction.

You might as well give in and pay her the attention she deserves.  Let’s just hope she doesn’t lose at yarn chicken.

No drama here.  Just a super chill ball that never tries too hard. She’ll pass you by without saying hello, and nothing you do is good enough.  Who does she think she is?!

Obviously a somebody – that’s why the paps are following her around, wanting a photo. Stylishly worn, like a comfortable pair of acid washed jeans, this ball will look awesome knit up into a pair of socks.

  1. Wow, thank you for the top of the line mention of Tumbling Blocks! I love that Colorway too. giggles is on top of my list. Will have to see if I’m fast enough to snag two LOL.

    I stopped in at the SSK market yesterday and got to meet Susan B Anderson in person. What a nice lady! I got a hank of the Must Stash in the dark side of the moon Extended play version, one other hank of yarn and one of those Akers portable spinning bobbins for a friend’s birthday. Hot, hot, hot.

    Has your son already left for college or you are just sad because you know he will be?



    • SSK sounded like a blast! Sorry I missed it this year.

      Tumbling Blocks is my current favorite sock pattern!

      Son is already gone. I sniffled a little in the cereal aisle of the grocery store. Only bought one box instead of the usual five – lol!

  2. I am new with Lollipop Yarn and knitting socks. Is one ball sufficient for a pair of socks? Or are two needed? Many thanks! (Your yarn is beautiful!)

  3. I’m very confused about purchasing your yarn. I saw the first set traditional and gripes. Never saw the beefcake load and I did refresh my screen just prior yo 4:15.
