YPF-The Crushed Version

The name of this colorway definately expresses my mood this week! (you all are saying what's with her and the YPF moody versions by now huh????)

009
Crushed Velvet!!! Gorgeous greens, reds, pinks, blacks...

Crushed 'cause as as I enter the phase of one leaving the nest. You all are sick to death of hearing about it. So supportive, Thank you for that! :)

Velvet as in the song "Black Velvet and that little boy smile!" Which was his favorite song when he was a baby. He'd get fussy and I'd dance around holding him and sing with the radio to that song. He'd calm down and smile at me and all was well! It'll always be our little song.

That yarn is fabulous! Its such an unusual combo, but it works oh so very well.

What a sweet story. I got a little teary eyed. You are such a sweet momma.

Oh my poor Zonda. You make me wanna cry. You will be just fine after a few. Just remember to wear your yoko ono shades and noone will see that you are tearing up. Have a safe trip and keep me updated..(since you are now the text queen)

I know you'll make it through the transition, but good luck!

Beautiful colors! When my son was little, he loved the song 'Kiss me', ( I don't know who sings it), and every time it came on, I would give him smooches. He's thirteen now, and I just heard the song the other day in the car and smiled at the memory.

What a great story. You need to make that up into a cowl so it can hug you when your son can't be there to do it himself. (hugs)

I like the idea of a huggy nostalgia cowl! It goes perfectly with your Black Velvet singalong story!
