To the Friend of a Yarn Addict
You are here because you are the friend of a yarn addict and she wants you to enable her. The following is a letter from her heart to yours.
Dear Loved One,
It's the holiday season, one of warmth and snuggles by the fireplace. Or it's my birthday. Or you've screwed up royally and want to try to make it up to me. You've asked me what you can buy me because you're at your wits end trying to figure it out.
Nothing would make me happier than if you fed my addiction and bought me some of this amazing yarn that I've been drooling over. And you love me and want me to be happy so you want to buy me yarn.
I know, I know--you don't know the difference between wool and acrylic, hand painted and semi-solid... and what's this speckled stuff about anyway?! So that's why you're here.
I'm a huge fan of this Melanie chick here at Go Knit Yourself and she's got a solution because she knows how hard it can be for you to know exactly what to get me....
YOU buy the gift and I get to pick out the color and fiber!
Easy, right?! You can buy me one skein, 1/2 a Year of Yarn, or a Year of Yarn (it's italicized because that's what I really want).
To make your purchase, choose from the drop down menu of one skein, 1/2 a Year of Yarn, or a Year of Yarn and make sure to leave a note for Melanie during checkout of my email address and the date she can contact me. That way she won't ruin your surprise.
Once you've paid, Melanie will email you a printable card that you can give me (in case you'll be giving me this awesome gift in person) AND an email template you can use to tell me about the awesome gift (in case we won't be seeing each other in person).
After that, you don't have to do a thing! Melanie will email me after the date you give her asking me what color and fiber I want. She'll also get my address from me so that she knows where to send it.
So if you've waited until the last minute, it's cool! I'll forgive you because you'll be buying me this gift that's totally amazeballs. And I'll love you forever.
Thanks for being my enabler!!
Love you forever,
Your favorite yarn addict
