Margene put the yarn brain-worm into my knitter's head.
Beaversliiiiiiiide. Beeeeeaverslide. Oh yes, you know you want it. Then Leanne put the color I've lusted after on sale.
First we talk about yarn and fiber in addiction vocabulary. (Stash.) Then the metaphors become sexual.
The handle of the yarn is soft and yielding. It demands to be caressed. The primal sheepy smell is intact. It seduces the knitter through our most primitive sense, arousing emotion and creativity.
I told Mr. E that I could barely restrain myself from ordering every color I love, in sweater quantity lots, so I could drown in Beaverslide yarn.
