Dear $DEITY, I’m a total floozy!

So, Froggie Meanie mentioned today that, and I quote, I received a project in the mail last Friday from the yarn company I home work for…

WAH! How come I don’t get to do that? I could so totally do that!!

Because I love to knit, I’m rather proud of my knitting, and am too poor to support my habit would be happy to share my enthusiasm and skill with desperate worthy designers in need of a second pair of eyeballs and hands. You know. ‘Test knitting’.

So I thought, Hmm. I wonder if there’s, like, a…job board…or something…for test knitters…

And I went and looked and by golly! Sometimes people even get paid to test knit patterns! Wow! What a concept!!

Most of the time, it appears they don’t. They get to keep the pattern, and the leftover yarn. And the joy of having knit something in a sexy yarn that would have set them back $200-300-500. Even though they have to put that thing right into an envelope and mail it back to the designer.

I’d be OK with that. Yes. Throw me some scrap yarn and a cool (or not cool, I’m not that proud) pattern and I’m your needle-slave.

And then it hit me.

Stephanie Pearl-McPhee may be a Yarn Harlot, but I am a simple, shameless floozy. I don’t even care if I get paid for it.

I just want to lie down and roll around in sexy yarn. Even if it isn't technically my sexy yarn.

It’s just so…unspeakably sordid…oh, the shame…the shame

Ah, but the shame, like the pain, goes away in time. Leaving you with, well, wallowing around in sexy yarn. Somebody else's sexy yarn. Which, come to think of it, might be even better.
