With a title like "searing" you might think I'm talking about the ridiculously hot weather we had this week, but no. Rather, I'm talking about the eyeball-searing yarn I bought the other day.
Seriously. Eyeball-searing. Especially that pink! It's marginally less painful to look at in person, but only just barely so. That's a bunch of skeins of Red Heart Super Saver from Walmart...yarn I'd normally never buy from a store I never shop at. But, as the picture would suggest, it's for yarnbombing -- and if yarnbombing isn't a good use for obnoxiously-colored Red Heart, I don't know what is.
This summer, a coworker and I have organized a yarnbombing group and we're going to cover our library in yarn. All the participants are REALLY enthusiastic, and if they follow through on even half of their ideas, it's going to be AWESOME. I can't wait to see what everyone does!
I knitted my first little tag the other night: it was meant to go on one of our barcode scanners (which is why it doesn't fit particularly well) but we decided that this little vase would, for now, be more visible. But, in due time, the barcode scanners will get cozied up, too. Oh yes. Yes, they will.
