For example: words in the English language. Comb = Tomb.
They both end in "-omb" but are pronounced completely differently.
That is dumb. But, that's also just MY opinion.
Another example in the English language, and one that I say frequently is:
If Freeze is Froze, Squeeze should be Squ-oze. Ugh.
Here's my weird thought for today: two's. How many things can I think of that come in pairs AND are related to yarn-y stuff? I didn't come up with many at all.
- Twins: As in the Double Stitch Twins, Erika and Monika Simmons. Designers and fashionistas by their own admission. They design with the team at Red Heart yarn and also have a couple of books.

- How about the obvious things like socks, mittens, gloves?

What got me started on this was that stupid! game Family Feud. The one that you can play with or against friends on Facebook? I play it, I'm pretty good at it. They asked a question wanting you to list things that came in pairs. I thought "easy". Do you know that they listed hands, feet and eyes?!?! Apparently everyone is born with two of those. They don't live in the real world. Not everyone is born with two of each. Again I say "Ugh".
So tell me, what things can you list that come in two's? AND are related to yarn? (I know, I sneeze twice too, but it's not related to yarn so it doesn't count.)
Peace and blessings,
