Product Description

·

We spent our honeymoon in D.C and in NYC. Our best couple friends planned their trip concurrently, and we spent our trip with them and their Aunt Violet.

Aunt Violet is in her 80’s and has always lived, worked and gone to school in NYC. She quickly decided to take me under her wing and show me HER New York. This included stepping in between myself and my new husband, to sit next to me on the tourist bus to tell me how everything the tour guide was saying was total “horse pile.”

As we walked the streets she pointed out every building and rattles off their histories, as they pertained to her. “I used to work there, before those bastards fired me,” “this place was a jazz club, then a tailor, then a bistro that used to serve a beautiful white fish.” Then, my favorite “no honey. We aren’t going in that shop. They’ll take one look at your sweet little face, and eat you for lunch. Reminds me. I’m starving.”

She yelled at a cab driver who only wanted to take four of us in his cab. “If you didn’t have all of your crap in the front seat, you wouldn’t be complaining. You got five, now DEAL with it!”

He dealt with it.

She was all fire, sass and absolute sweetness. She showed us her NYC, as an absolute force of nature.

Aunt Violet is 462 yards of fingering weight 75% Superwash Merino, 20% Nylon, 5% Stellina and 100% awesome. A vibrant mix of purple, violet and shocking fuchsia, this yarn is only half as brilliant as Aunt Violet, herself. Due to the hand dyed nature of Tinsel Factory yarns, no two are alike. I suggest alternating between skeins for large projects, as there are no dye lots.

Please ask any questions you may have, before purchasing, as different devices may not show as true to the skein. This product currently has two in stock, backordered skeins have a 21 day turnaround time.
