I mean, just look at this gorgeous thing!
And it looks like I'm not the only one who's caught the bug, if GothKnitty's Yule Ball finery is anything to go by.
I'm a little worried that a novelty-yarn epidemic might break out, so I popped in to the Potions classroom to see if anyone might have a cure - and look who greeted me when I walked in the door. Slothmuffin's Get-Better Owl, Pepper!
(Now, this might be a good time to admit I've got one skein of black eyelash yarn in my stash, and one of black and silver. And they're calling to me... calling... my... name...)
