I stopped by Avenue Yarns on Saturday to pick up a set of size 3 circular needles for hat-knitting, and discovered that they're selling reflective yarn.

Not this kind (acrylic-polyester blech). Nor the reflective thread I used to make [livejournal.com profile] scrottie's leg-warmers. (I should do more things with that thread).

Instead, it appears to consist of strips of the reflective thread held within a mostly-transparent tube made of some sort of synthetic material. There was even a sample sweater with a band of argyle knitted up with it, and it looked fabulous.

I'm just happy to know that it exists. I just think it's a fun fashion element.

In the last day or so, Livejournal updated its user policies, upsetting longtime users to varying degrees. There are a lot of potential reasons to be upset or decide this is the final straw, and I don't know to what extent it's useful to rehash or analyze those reasons in detail.

But I will say that I have finally claimed this same username over at Dreamwidth, and have started the journal import process. So if you've got dual identities, too, let me know, as I suspect I'll continue to work on transferring things there and may eventually completely cut ties here.
