I’ve finally shaken off the malaise that I’ve had since coming home from vacation and am back to doing crafty things. It’s been nice. This morning I dyed some yarn for the shop, which has been neglected for the past month. Don’t be sad, little Etsy shop! I will soon refill [...]

So, I actually did finish that hat from the other day. It’s a bit small, though, so I may just wear it on really cold days when I want my head smashed together. I started knitting Bela a sweater today, too. We bought one for her at Petsmart when we were on [...]
I have been a busy little Yarnzombie lately. Actually, I’ve been so productive that I like to think that this period of time more than balances out any periods of utter laziness or time spent playing Fallout 3. Yesterday I combed up some more roving balls and will be doing a big shop [...]
First off, here’s a link to a goofy story about a 12 year old British girl and Somali pirates. Yarr!
Okay, yesterday I made the bold step of taking down the loom off the bedroom wall. Yes! I know! Nutty. I had a shuttle that was already loaded with yarn, so [...]
In case anyone gets ground beef from Whole Foods (like we do), just a heads up that they issued a recall on meat sold during the past few months. More info available here. I guess if you take your receipt or the sticker that came on the meat back to the store, they’ll [...]
After a month or so of not being interested in the election (what can I say – I had post-primary depression), I’m now getting ready to have a big, flaming, international Obama geek-out today.

Or June. Whatever. It’s 6:00 pm and it’s 92 degrees outside. It’s hot-tacular!
Haven’t written in a few days because Travis unexpectedly wound up with 3 days off. We’re not sure what happened. Our only guess is that someone broke the railroad, because they were only calling one or two trains [...]
One of the top searches that lead to this blog is “what happened on zombie road missouri.” Unfortunately, I don’t know the answer to that. What I do know is that we went on vacation to Missouri last fall, and I certainly didn’t see any Zombie Road, so now I’m all pissed I [...]
There has been a flurry of yarn related activity here lately. First off, the rug I was weaving that I thought wasn’t going to turn out to be a rug turned out to be a rug after all.
Then I started knitting a hat for a friend. And then I had to reknit it [...]
Things I know:
1. Travis and I have survived this winter solely through a combination of potatoes, chili, and tacos. If it wasn’t for the jumbo 40 oz. bag of shredded cheese we get at Costco, I don’t know how we would have made it through.
Here’s some of the culinary highlights from the past [...]
