I just got my yan from handpaintedyarn.com today and omg, it is so freaking fabulous I can barely contain myself. No one around here understands...

(me, to my five year old: "do you like my yarn?" 5yo: "um, yeah." me: "isn't it fabulous???" 5: "um, yeah, can you make me a peanut better sandwich?" me: "yes, but DON'T YOU LOVE MY YARN???")

:roflhard:

Isnt their stuff fabulous? I bought 3 kinds of yarn, just to see what I like, and definitely had a favorite which I will buy again....the pure merino bulky. The handspun bulky is a second place winner, still very nice, and the superbulky merino is great for hats and stuff, but I doubt I will buy again.

I guess my kids are weird. Alex {the 3 yo} will pet yarn with me at the LYS; Lissa {the 2 yo} says everything I make is "cute"; and my older girls {9 & 10} love the pretty colours of the yarns, and complain when the hank they're holding for me to wind into balls is too scratchy!

That is so funny--my 3 yr. old likes yarn too--when I'm knitting, she has to have a piece of whatever I am working with (so I've learned to cut off a piece and set it aside...it's hard to explain to a 3 yr. old why you can't just give her a piece when you're in the middle of knitting something)! Usually she runs around the house with it trailing behind her like streamers--it was one of the ways I worked on her colors back when she was learning them--it's still a good way to show her unusual colors (lavender, taupe, etc.).

The handpainted yarns look great in the pic so I'm sure they are fabulous--I've been curious about them, it's nice to know that people like them so much! :) Thanks for sharing!
