I may be a Yarn Editor, but I have been asked (and agreed to) some fascinating things. [The following quotes have been exaggerated for effect and do not necessarily represent the views and opinions of their originators].
"Here, eat these so I won't."
"Will you reknit this entire cowl this afternoon so we don't have to mail it back to Kansas?"
"Tech edit and proof the copy on these 80 knitting and crochet patterns."
"Go 3 blocks to Purl and get some yarn for Loretta to knit a fairy with."
"Tell me what you think of this new Vickie Howell yarn before she comes for a photoshoot next week." [Needless to say, I agreed to all of the above]
