Skinny yarn and a shawl challenge


Howdy, sister dear.
You say you love this yarn:
and you plead for it: "OHHHHHHH I WANT ONE OF THOSE CONES!!!!!" and "Pleeeeeeeeeeease?????" Geez, what a little beggar. But I am prepared to be generous, as I am your (much) younger sister, after all, and everyone knows that the youngest child is never a Shrimp, nor a Brat, but verily the Bestest of the Best.

Ok, getting a little carried away there. However, it's nice to return to the alleged topic of our blog. I was about to suggest changing the name to Sibling Rivalry, or Hi-Line Honeys (referring to the northernmost train route in the US - but a name that has to be explained is never any good). At any rate, I must warn you. These are very skinny yarns. You'll have to closely examine this picture to see how skinny they are because either my camera does not do extreme closeups, or I don't know how to make my camera take extreme closeups. I think probably the latter.
So, with that in mind, what do you mean when you say, "Maybe we can do a shawl challenge?"
Also, here is a picture of the card I sent Jeni for her birthday (to arrive late, as is customary.)
Inside it says, "Your Male Strippers are Here! Happy Birthday!
Love, Mary

There is absolutely nothing whatever to stop you from doubling or tripling that skinny yarn you know.

BTW thank you for reminding me of Jenny's birthday.

Nothing to stop us from doubling, tripling, or mixing it with another yarn. I still want to know what a Shawl Challenge is. Do you want some of each color, or just one cone to yourself. I can ball some up. There's so much of it that it would take me years to use it all up.

Well a shawl challenge is whatever we decide it is. We are the deciders.
Wow you mean I would have to choose which or how much????
I want some of both I think. (greedy) But I do like the lighter one better.

Well, I want some of both, so you get some of both.
