my favourite neologism of the day:
/‘bärf-gläb/ noun (plural -s) A wad of
tangled yarn that comes out of the middle of a center-pull skein of
yarn when you are attempting to knit from the skein.
i’m suffering from barf-globs at the moment.
(i’m knitting this asymmetric jacket thingy (waves from rowan’s all seasons cotton pattern booklet) out of this shade of all seasons cotton,
a colour that alternately makes me say “oh god did i choose to wear
beige, i must be entering middle age” and “ooh, chocolate milkshake,
mmmm, someone get me a frappacino now!”).
