Details, Schmetails

So you all want more info on the yarn club, do ya? Well tough! You can just sit there and ponder like the rest of humanity. And when you've guessed wrong, guess what? I don't wanna hear a peep! No running over to the Big 6 on Ravelry and raising a fuss on how disappointed you are because The Mean Girls Yarn Club didn't meet your expectations.

Well, what did you expect? WE'RE MEAN! Duh! You're just gonna have to sit there in your big girl panties and take it, and you're gonna like it, want to know why? Huh, how does it feel to want? Hello...Mean Girls Yarn Club. I think that sums it up.

First, I'll answer questions from the comment section:

1. Michelle:
Q. Who did the house REALLY fall on? Will the club answer that question?
A. Yes. Your mom

2. Blogless Weebil (What's up with that?)
Q. What? No rules about trading/selling/ebaying? Or is it just assumed that your clubmates in MGYC will put a hit out on you if you try to do anything of the sort? Because we will, you know.
A. Let me introduce you to Guido & Luigi. They're here to ensure that yooz guys don't even THINK about it.

The solution is very easy. IF a colorway isn't for you (and we don't see why it wouldn't. This is the MGYC, it's implied that you get what you get and you like it), anyhow... if for some reason you and your colorway aren't getting along, just follow these simple rules...
  1. First and foremost...NO WANKING ALLOWED!
  2. Email either Bobbie or me, and in 50 words or less inform us of your decision.
  3. We'll put the word out to your fellow members that there's an unwanted, unloved skein, ABUSED skein of MGYC yarn out there in need of a good home.
  4. We'll put the abandoner/adopter in touch with each other, and you all can iron out all the payment/shipping details to your little black hearts' content.
  5. If, in the unlikely event that no one wants your castoff, you can do with it what you will, but only after 6 months.
  6. If all else fails, see rule #1.
3. KittyRiver (another blogless wonder, WTF?)
Q. Any ideas on yarn weight?
A. Yeah, it weighs about as much as a skein of yarn...duh!

Sharky's Yarn Specs:
100% Merino Superwash Sock
440 yards/402 meters; 3 oz./85 g.
6-8 spi on US size 2-4

Knotty's Yarn Specs
100% Merino Superwash Sock
560 yards/512 meters; 4 oz./115 g.
8-10 spi on US size 0-2

The shipments will go out as follows:

June - Sharky
August - Knotty
October - Sharky
December - Knotty
February - Sharky
April - Knotty

And now from the forum boards:

1. Xen
Q. Will you be doing international shipments, and if so, how much would they be?
A. For all you international hoars (besides Canadian hoars, that is), PM, PP, DM or email Bobbie or me immediately. Basically, we're thinking of a number. If there are less of you than that number, there will be no extra shipping. However, if there are more of you than the number, there will be a small additional shipping charge added on to your membership..

Further clarification before you nice Canadians get your panties in a twist. No, we are not excluding you, though, we should on principal...cuz, you know, you're an entire NATION OF NICE. But no, we're making an exception, hoping that you all can tap your inner Mean Girl, and indulge her from time to time. We just don't consider you "international", so yes, Canadians can join, and no, it won't cost you hoars extra. Same goes for anyone living in Mexico.

2. Mehitabel
Q. And are you going to do the signups when I’m out of town and away from my computer??
A. Well, duh. Of course we are! First week of April...or perhaps the second...depending on how lazy and mean I am then. Even thought we should, we're not gonna go all Loopy or Sundara on you. We will give you all ample warning of at least, oh, an hour.

Any other questions? Good! I didn't think so.

I will cut a bitch if I don't get in. I'm stealing my kid's birthday money to fund this so if it sucks, I will cut a bitch. If I don't like the colors, I will cut a bitch. If I don't get candy with my yarnz, I will cut a bitch.

I going to cut a bitch no matter what.

I will cut both bitches and hoars! So watch it!

It's a good thing I'm not a bitch so Crazywig can't cut me.

I've got lots of iodine, mercurochrome, band-aids, neosporin, and I'll be over here playing Medic to all the cut and battered bitches. Then Crazywig and I will split up their skeins of yarn amongst us.

Assuming, of course, that I get in. If I don't get in, then there will be a good reason to use all those medical supplies cause I will be cutting a bitch too!

Go ahead, Crazywig. Try to cut me.

Why, yes - I AM still channeling my main man, why do you ask?

I'm joining so that I can sell the yarn on eBay for $500!
