Yarn ads on a Yarnaholics Unanonymous LOL

The yarn stash gods are smiling and laughing down at the poor little souls who are trying to decrease their stash! I find it highly ironic that on the Yarnaholics Unanonymous web ring the Google ads that have appeared are for YARN!!! I do believe that defeats the purpose of their site teeheehee - here is the Yarn gods commentary:

"What?!?! They want to decrease their stash!!!! No way!! They must be stopped or we are out of a job! Hey Al - don't you bowl on Thursdays with the Internet Ad God Bob?"

"Sure do Dave!"

"Give him a call Al and see if he can set it up so their Google ads are for Yarn sites! Ha ha ha ha ha"

"Brilliant Dave! There they are, thinking that they can sign up for support to kick their wonderful yarn habit, and Wham! Right there before their eyes are lovely... wonderful... brilliant ads to buy more yarn! I'll go give Bob a call right now."

*evil laughter as he dials the phone*

"Hey Bob its Al from Thursday night bowling....yeah, all is going well...no, its not about bowling I have a work related issue that you can help me with.....well, these puny mortals are trying to kick their yarn habits which means I will be out of a job and not able to buy any more rounds of beer after the games on thursdays....yeah, we can not let that one happen! Do you think you can fix their google ads on the sign up pages to be ads for yarn? .....You can? ....Wonderful! I'll be sure to send your wife some on that awesome lang opal-color yarn for Christmas as a thank you......don't worry - first and last beer rounds next week are on me! See you Thursday Bob"

Hi Kimberly!
I'm another American living in Brussels (just briefly, for another three weeks) and desperately in search of yarn shops! What a nice surprise to find your blog!
Do you know of any stores that sell yarn? I refuse to return to the US without some cool Belgian yarn!
Thanks!
Lisa

Hi Lisa! There are two shops that I know of that sell yarn. The first is right down the street from me off of Avenue Louise on Rue Bailli - it is called Arts et Fils (open 9:30 to 6:00 Mon-Sat). The second is Phildar - a french company that only sells their own brand I believe (not been there yet) it is on Chaussèe de Wavre in Etterbeek.

Kimberly,
Thanks! I appreciate the advice. Hopefully I can stop by one of the shops tomorrow. If I get to Phildar, I'll let you know what it's like!

ROFL! And apparently they want them to stock up on Red Heart only. At least the yarn buying ads I saw were for that.
