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 [...]

First of all, I was going to do a shop update tonight, but waited until after my light got all crappy so I couldn’t color-edit my photos correctly. Like this may or may not be what the yarn actually looks like!
Who can say? Not me! So, I’ll do it all tomorrow. [...]
Working on getting some yarn ready for a shop update tomorrow.
Yay, yarn! I’ll start putting them up tomorrow morning, barring any unforeseen weirdness. No fiber right now – I’ve been in a yarn mood lately, and a bit of a fiber slump. I did order some new dyes, and got some fiber [...]
Spring! I don’t care if the temps drop again and we get more snow, at least now I know that spring is near. For we have crocus! And pussy willow!
Yay! Nature hasn’t given up on us!
The past few days have been absolutely wonderful (we didn’t get anywhere near as [...]
I’ve accumulated a fair amount of leftover fiber debris from the combing of roving balls, so I started working on making some new Anarchy batts today.
I did seven and then my hand started hurting (I had an unfortunate run in with the wool picker yesterday – note to self – If something very, very pointy [...]
I screwed up my back a few days ago, which is always irritating. This time, I did it by stretching. Apparently, I’m a doofus. Anyway, it’s not as bad as it’s been in the past, and I expect to be combing roving balls again tomorrow. In the meantime, I’ve been hanging [...]
No potato pancakes yet. Travis and I completely slacked off for Thanksgiving. Maybe potato pancakes soon, though. We made some big pizza pocket things and chili today. Nom.
Got out the keggle this morning and did some post-Thanksgiving hobo dyeing. It figures that I would get in the mood to dye [...]
You know, I am stupid. I go through these phases where I don’t do something for a while, and then I get all whiny and lame about having to do that thing, and then after I finally do it, I’m all, “Oh yes! I remember now that I actually enjoyed doing this!”
Case in point is [...]
I just noticed one of the search terms used to find this site is “Dyeing yarn with avocado pits.” Uh, no? I’ve not tried that, but now am very curious… Tricia, check that out for me, will you?
Anyway, did the first big, pre-vacation yarn update at the shop. [...]
So, as has been the case recently, I’ve been a bit MIA. The blame for this lies in a week’s worth of misadvantures in computing. First, when the remnants of Ike swept through, we lost power for an evening (no big deal), and lost our cable (we have cable internet) for 2-3 days. That was [...]
