We have a new knitnighter. Sadly I am not there as I type because HusbandBob is mansick.
However, knitnightbarry will fit right in after this awesome Facebook exchange between several of our knitnighters. It also proves that the term "balls of yarn" is funny in any language.
P.S. Knitnightbarry has a PhD in French.
At this point, of course I had to look up la roupette. Wouldn't you? It was an invitation to dance.
