I was going to go with a theme edition of Yarnival. You know, Spring Break, or maybe St. Patty's Day. Lent, anyone? Yeah. I didn't think so. I was a little light on entries, probably due in part to February being such a short month. My theme idea ran out of steam as the entries rolled in, and I decided to play it straight. So, without further ado, I present the March 15th 2007 edition of Yarnival! Enjoy!
