Stash Swap at KOL

Dramatis Personae:

Ninja Knitter--swap organiser and chief swapper
Mrs. Happy--chief assistant and Vanna White to the Ninja
Assorted KOL Knitters

Act 1

NK: Who wants this lovely skein of Very Desirable Silk/Cashmere/Platinum/Diamond/Merino Yarn hand spun by Famous Yarn Person, from her rare breed of sheep only found on the top of a single mountain in Wales, sheared at midnight on Midsummer's Eve with golden shears, and then hand dyed by Other Famous Yarn Person using dyes from plants found only in the deepest reaches of the Amazonian rain forest, that she picked herself at the last full moon of summer?

Mrs. H: Holds up yarn and waves it around

Assorted Knitters 1, 2, 3: (waving arms in the air) Oh! Me! I do! (look around at each other, slowly lower hands)

AK1: Oh, that's okay, I don't really need it.

AK2: Oh, you should have it, I already have lots of yarn.

AK3: Well, I only want it if nobody else does.

AK1: Seriously, one of you guys take it.

AK2: Well, if you're totally sure, but I think you should have it.

AK3: I'm okay, I got this skein of crappy acrylic already from the swap, I'm fine, really.

NK: Somebody take this yarn!!

Heh heh. You've missed your calling as a playwrite.

I think all it's missing is a Greek Chorus. I think that's where Henry and Mauve could play a part.

Heehee. We are so very Canadian...too busy being polite to each other to grab the damn yarn.

However...the swarm around the "reject" pile was a sight to see.

Jennifer said...

That's hilarious! I wish I could've been there. :)

Are you kidding? I would have totally punched anyone in the throat for the silk cashmere I scored. Luckily, it didn't come to that.

p.s. nice yarn description

Seeing Moe's comment I am glad I didn't fight for the silk cashmere. Could you imagine going to a job interview with a black eye and having to explain you got it at a yarn swap?!
