Tink and Wink have been partners at YITF for 6 years. The original Knitini gals, they have snorkeled with sharks in Belize, driven the roads in Italy, and hopped Harleys at ROT (Republic of Texas Bikers Rally).
About a year ago, Wink decided that the knitting life is a bit too sedentary, and decided to pass her half of the Yarns in the Farms torch to Tink (What, you never knew there was a YITF torch?). So last February, the flaming torch was tossed from Wink to Tink, in a firey arc across the sky. Tink suffered minor burns but luckily was not wearing any acrylic knitwear, so she has recovered nicely (accept for that scar but pretend you don’t notice).
In the intervening months, Wink has continued working at YITF, to our mutual delight. Alas, Wink has now decided to venture out into the wider world to begin a new enterprise cross breeding rare endangered VIRGIN ACRYLICS with PUERTO RICAN STREET DOGS to create a new fiber blend called “Chaste Chacha”.
It will only burn if it loses its virginity.
We are sad to see her go, but she will be making guest appearances in her (slightly scorched) new knitwear.
Please come and celebrate Carolyn at the original KNITINI bar,
