Cotton Ease Countdown

So I was at Michael's the other day and I noticed that they don't have Lion Brand Cotton Ease yet. I was going to ask one of the employees when they would be getting the yarn, but I figured that they wouldn't know. It made me kinda sad that people weren't having Cotton Ease new release parties like many people will be having for the seventh Harry Potter book. I realized that I even fell into this group. I know that I will be waiting in line at midnight of whatever the release date for the final Harry Potter book, but I am in no hurry to order Cotton Ease off a website. I am perfectly content to wait until my local Michael's (not my LYS, mind you) gets this fabulous product in stock. It made me realize that as much as I love knitting, I am not as hardcore as (just as an example really) my Harry Potter obsession. I have to wonder if there are people out there, the more hardcore fiber lovers, counting down to new and exciting yarn lines. To be honest, I wish I was a bit more of a hardcore fiber love, but at the same time, I know that if I was I would be constantly sad that I couldn't afford the good stuff. Oh well, at least there are only seven Harry Potter books. :-/



  1. Sounds like Epcot was fun - I went several years ago, and can't remember if we went to Norway. We went on a boat ride in one of the Scandanavian countries, but it was more history - I would have remembered trolls.

  2. I doubt many people would stalk a Lion Brand line release, but I know several people (myself included) who are guilty of stalking some of the small independent sock yarn dyers scheduled updates for certain popular colorways.

  3. You know, I once dated a guy that looked like Harry Potter. I could give you his screenname.
    Also, please don't be that excited about Lion Brand. Hit up your LYS and find some of the beautiful, luxurious, pettable yarns there. It's worth it! I promise.

  4. I am a pretty big yarn snob but I also love Lion Brand Cotton Ease. It is really easy to knit with and makes great kidswear. I am knitting my 2 year old a sweater with it right now from the old colors that were on clearance at Tuesday Morning. I had about 30 skeins that I was hoarding but once I found out it was coming back I gleefully started using it.
