“Winners never quit and quitters never win.” Vince Lombardi. We will try this KAHUNA GIVEAWAY again this week.

Same tie breakers as last week and if Seattle wins we will try again next week.....and the next.....and the next....have a great 👍 day! #knitting #knittersofinstagram #crochet #crochetersofinstagram #chelseayarns #magicyarnball

“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.” Albert Einstein. Ok, Ok, Ok...I am trying something new to have fun with Kahuna Kountry and to give some much needed mojo to my Minnesota Vikings. Pictured is “Purple Soul” 800 yards of sock yarn atop a Kahuna Bag. ITS FREE to the person who FOLLOWS Red Bank Mike and picks the Vikings at Patriots correct winning score for Minnesota (for example Vikings 57 Patriots 3) If the Vikings lose.... we will try again next week...and the next...and the next.... first tie breaker if nobody selects each team’s exact score is the Vikings score, then point differential - finally ties will be broken with a drawing out of my hat. Entries must be in by 4:00 pm Eastern Time. Get involved, have fun and good luck 👍🍀! #knitting #knittersofinstagram #yarnporn #yarn #crochetersofinstagram #minnesotavikings #chelseayarns

“Well done is better than well said.” Benjamin Franklin. No point in me talking about Kahunas...just have to make them. This morning’s ball of fun was inspired by the music of Little Feat and those sizzling sounds from Lowell George - welcome “Time Loves A Hero” to the Kahuna world. It’s 7 colors of sock yarn, equal lengths each wound twice. It’s 1,100 yards of serenity and is shipped to your door along with a Kahuna Bag for $100. I can jam like Lowell and get this out in today’s mail. Lemme know, and if you just want to talk Little Feat that’s cool 😎 too! #knitting #knittersofinstagram #yarnporn #redbank #yarn #crochet #magicyarnball #chelseayarns

“If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don’t have to worry about the answers. Thomas Pynchon. Pynchon, Vonnegut, Robbins...my literary “3 Kings” of zany - the BB, Freddie and Albert of page to page jam...a guitar solo here, bass solo there, drum solo when you don’t expect it and Janis Joplin when you are looking for Billy Holliday. Confusing? Yes! Meet “Gravity’s Rainbow.” A hodgepodge of 1,125 yards of many sock yarns, colors and vibes. Different hues, different lengths, different moods - it’s Mountain Jam times two. Boom. $100 includes shipping and Kahuna Bag....and a whole lot of vibe.

So this morning I exhausted myself creating “HOLY SH*T” 2000 yards - that’s over a mile - of 15 colors sock yarn wound twice. It’s big. It’s badass. Its bodacious.

“Not making a decision is the worst thing you can do...” Bo Schembechler. Yesterday @chelseayarns had a trunk show with Liz from @treliz_colorispower. She saw these two Kahunas heading for the photo shoot and said “I can’t go back to Greece without them.” Right place, right time.

“It takes a long time to become young.” Pablo Picasso.

In the middle, “I’m going Home.” 1,550 yards of sock yarn with some glitter tossed in! ($150 includes Kahuna Bag and shopping.) On the right, “Rainbows All Over Your Blues.” A funky mixture of sock yarn with a touch of glitter to boot. ($150 includes Kahuna Bag and Shipping.).
