i just want to say...
Really. You're too kind but there's honestly no need to go to so much effort for little ol' me.
Does anyone else receive the piece of total fucking crap that is the Herrschner's catalog? I'm not saying they don't have nice yarn, for good prices. I am merely asking if I am the only one subjected to the horrors of items such as this sequined patriotic bear banner.
It's sequined! But it's a kit! You sew the sequins on yourself!
What's good about it? I can use it to discover that Bernat has gone completely Wonder Bread white, and created a yarn called Bling Bling. I'm not knocking the yarn itself, mind you; if I ran across it in a Michael's and I liked it I would buy it, yarn slut that I am. But actually naming the yarn "Bling Bling" removes the street cred of the term itself, and converts it into the same soulless wonder as my little old lady white gospel barbershop chorus does to every Duke Ellington or "Tuxedo Junction" type of song out there.
My favorite slogan in this Herrschner's catalog?
"Shinin' and Stylin' - Disco is Back, Jack!"
