Ok...which one of you cheek rubbers got make-up on the ball of yarn I bought? LOL

The suspect wears a medium base foundation with blush.

Not me-- I never wear makeup whenI shop. I was in a new LYS yesterday, rubbing Debbie Bliss Cashmerino on my face, right in front of the shop owner, who didn't even flinch!

Oh! Make-up on a ball of yarn. That pains my heart. How lucky that it went home with someone with such a terrific sense of humor.

I've seen all sorts of habits at the LYS, and I'd much rather have the ball of yarn with a bit of makeup over the ball that I saw getting dabbed in a bare armpit to test it's softness.

I feel a little weird when I rub the yarn against my neck. How could someone rub it on their armpits??? And in public???

I never wear full face makeup unless I'm going out. So it wasn't me. The funny thing is my boys will want to rub it on their cheeks when they shop with me. They like to give it a rating like "soft-tastic"!

ROFL! I think the woman that dabbed her pit thought she was alone. I spied her with my little eye through one of the wire yarn bins on the other side of her isle.

I test on my lower neck..sternum (sp)? I don't usually buy white yarn, and alone, you can't really see the makeup. When the ball sits with the other balls of white, you can tell "one of these things is not like the other".

I definitely don't rub yarn on my face (unless I've already bought it... :-) ). Lower neck, yes, but that's about it. I wear tinted moisturizer and a bit of blush, so I probably would leave a slight trace on white yarn...

(Armpit?? EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW)
