Yak, Yak Yarn and YAHOO!

Whoa big fella.... These guys are enormous, eh? I wouldn't want to accidentally end up in front of one. Domestic yaks are smaller and less shaggy, but a wild male can weigh over a ton and be more than 6 ½ feet tall... that's a lot of yak! With both undercoat and over layer, they are happy to 40 below... better them than me, that's what I have to say about that.

And for your fun fact... YAK YARN!!! I have some knitting friends who might just have to add that to their list of media...

And finally... It's a BIG DAY for my buddy Tara—her first book release is TODAY:  If The Shoe Fits so I thought I'd through her a little party, with all the

and YIPEEs

such an event calls for.

You've worked hard, chica! Enjoy your big day and congratulations!!!!

And if I might trouble all of YOU... would you mind sharing a little love with her?


on Facebook

And add her book TO READ

at Goodreads

And if you want to buy the book:

Crimson Romance

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Congrats to Tara.

Yaks are such unusual creatures. Like extra parts all put together.

Amber T. Smith said...

Awww, thanks for the love, Tami!!! *hugs* Yaks... and yak yarn?? Awesome!!

I went with 'yay' and 'yippeeeeee!' for my two A-Z posts. Didn't think of 'yahoo' (though I think I mentioned yabba dabba do).

Thanks for the congratulations, everyone!! <3

Surprised you didn't go with yak loin. You know what it's good for. (Not that I need any...)
Congratulations to Amber.

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay TARA!!!! And I knitted a sweater for one of my nephews in yak yarn, his parents brought it back for me from Nepal and I saved it for their firstborn. :-)

Jai said...

That yak is way cool looking. But I wouldn't want to meet one in the wild.

Added another book to the TBR pile.

Congrats Tara!!

I'd say how effervescent your post was if I could spell it correctly.

Is anyone using Yahoo anymore? I think it's years since last time I used their services.

Congratulations to Tara. Will go check out her book.

As for yak yarn, I wonder if it's itchy?

Helena said...

A big hurray for Tara/Amber! May her book sell by the thousands.

I had no idea there was such a thing as yak yarn. Live and learn.

Shelley Munro said...

That yak has horns so I'm standing clear. The yarn, however could tempt me. Also your friend's book. I love her cover.

Mel Chesley said...

That is one big yak! Congrats to Tara! Yay!

~Sia McKye~ said...

Aww, what a sweet thing to do for your writing buddy! Love the champagne and strawberries.

Yah, the yak's can keep the -40. But their yarn makes a good blanket. :-)

Congrats to Tara and I'm disappointed you didn't mention that old song they used to play on Benny Hill...Yaketty Sax! :)
