Ebay is Evil

I am on a yarn diet, really I am. Next weekend is MD S+W, and I will buying fun things there. I have too much stash as it is. I don’t need more, even if I would like more. Ebay has other thoughts. Ebay is not helping. This morning I received this standard email: ============================= […]

Yes, I Can Be Funny Sometimes

I don’t tell good jokes (“A guy walks into a bar.” pause “The second guy ducks.”). I don’t tell funny anecdotes. I do have a good sense of humor and I always laugh appropriately, it’s just that I personally have trouble delivering a story or joke in a way to make someone else laugh. But […]

Sick Day

When you’re healthy, you sometimes fantasize about taking a sick day. A free day to spend at home with the fuzzy ones, catching up on TiVOed programs, knitting/crocheting/spinning. Then you actually get sick. I spent the entire day yesterday sleeping. I tried to watch an anime dvd — I fell asleep 30 minutes into it. […]

Sunday Sock Update

Well, with my time being sucked up this week with family events and the Komi mitten, I didn’t make much sock progress. I did get to the heel on the Ladybug sock, but the ribbing is really boring me right now (doh): ladybug socks I also swatched three yarns… I’m not quite sure why since […]

New Feeds and Such

I’ve moved the new WordPress site over to replace the old site. The biggest problem right now is that I’m having some issues adjusting it so that the new site feed can be read at the old site feed locations. Bloglines/other aggregators aren’t happy about it. I’m working on it. If you did make it […]
