Well, its that time of year again; time for a new beginning, a new discussion.....so.....
Won't you share a thought or two?
A joke...or maybe a story?
Perhaps a snippet of your day?
Or your life in all its glory......
I invite you, one and all, to visit this new 2015 discussion and share whatever is on your mind.....the good, the bad...and the not too ugly.
Remember, you are among friends.
Even kittens like to share a yarn......
The 2014 Share A Yarn? discussion will be archived, but still available for reading and reminiscing.

http://blog.lionbrand.com/2015/06/03/how-to-join-yarn-seamlessly-fe... this is a great way to seamlessly join two wool yarn strands---no weaving/sewing in or knots. Wow,neat. It's called a Felted Join. Anyone tried this?
I like the look of that trick I will try it. I have been using the magic knot.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention Jeanne. I'm certainly going to try this. Like you Sue, I've been using the magic knot. But this looks as though it would be much smoother.
I just noticed a very small note on the explanations.....this only works on 100% wool yarn!!
I wondered about that Valerie as wool has more little fibres to cling on with. I'll stick to the magic knot until I have some wool.
It seems like one is felting the ends together, given the amount of work involved. Do let me know if it works, I'm right now doing a pattern where knots don't matter so I'm knot in the mood to try something else haha. Anyways it's all acrylic yarn so the technique wouldn't work for me right now.
That's the exact opposite in our house......hubby gets half the bed and the dog and I have to share the other, with the result that the dog hogs half of it (she is only a little silky/yorkshire cross, but she knows how to take up a lot of space) and I get a little thin slice along the edge (most nights), like in the picture.
Bev, I had the same problem as you....But substitute cat for dog. There was also the additional problem in that when my husband goes off to sleep all his muscles relax and his arm has an automatic reflex reaction and I often almost got a backhander. We now have twin beds. I feel safer and the cat gets a little more room.
omigosh! This is our bed, too, except change the His and Hers around. Luckily, I don't have to share my tiny slice with any pets. True story...the other night I went to turn over and my foot slipped off the edge of the bed because I was so close to it. I thought I was going to fall out...lol.
And Valerie, I get bopped in the back of the head from time to time, as well. I'm surprised I've never ended up with a black eye in all these years...lol.
For years we wondered how we would ever convince anyone that I wasn't a battered wife if ever I did get a black eye or a tooth knocked out. Luckily that never happened. It gave us a good giggle thinking about it though.
And YES I feel these are often very true indeed, lol!
