Yarn haiku

Lion Brand is featuring a contest: submit a haiku for a chance to with a $25 gift certificate. I thought I'd share mine.

Oh center-pull skein...
Where's your pesky hidden end?
Got it! Nope. Yarn barf.

I think that "yarn barf" is a commonly known yarn term. Sometimes it's hard to find the end of a center-pull skein. A lot of times you pull out what you think is the end, only to pull out a huge lump of yarn instead. That lump is yarn barf. I can only win the contest of they know what "yarn barf" is. Fingers crossed!
