If They Were Yarn.....

If Addison were yarn, he would be wool.




Worsted weight.
Merino.
The yarn that is reliable, dependable, and sturdy with that delicious smell. Warm, but not too scratchy. You always know what you are going to get with worsted weight wool, but it still makes you so excited each time you purchase a new color.


It blocks well, and doesn't pill too much.

It is the kind of yarn you never want to run out of.




If Anna were yarn, she would be Mohair.
Feathery, wispy and light.

Glamorous and a bit sassy.
Always in fashion, and let's face it, a little hard to work with.





But so worth it.





If Jack were yarn, he would be chunky cashmere.
It looks big and tough on the outside, but you can't help yourself.
You just want to squeeze it all the time.





It is soft and squishy, smooth as butter.








Like getting a big hug all day long.
You know, sometimes when I find a great knitting pattern I run up to see if I have anything that will work in my stash. I did this the other day and while I was pulling out the yarn I said " Come to Mama."
Is that strange?
On second thought....
Don't answer that.

I'm still so new a knitting that I couldn't describe it vs my kids yet. I'm still cursng my fingers for not cooperating.

Well... that actually could be remarkably descriptive of how I feel about my kids some days! lol :D

So what kind of yarn be? Your kids are beautiful. You make me can't wait to have a daughter, or just kids for that matter, one day. I think if I were yarn, I'd be a super soft silk bamboo yarn that's a bit stringy but super soft and the tiniest bit of sheen.

I love it so much! Describing kids like yarn. I say that about days. Some are like acrylic and others are the perfect wool, you know?
