So over the last year and a half, my yarn production has been low and my excuse making skills have been off the chart.  I have been knitting, spinning, and generally fibre-arting, but in a much lower quantity than before. What else have I been up to?  I’m glad that you asked. Over the course [...]

why have i been witholding all of this?? because cannibals ate my homework?  because i was held in hostage negotiations by terrorist pandas? well, mostly it was because i started christmas knitting and got caught up in the hectic insanity that is trying to finish a family’s worth of christmas gifts as the world’s slowest [...]

starting tomorrow i will be, for the first time in weeks, not terribly busy.  last week was filled with podcast research, recording, editing, a craft show, a knitting afternoon at Knit-O-Matic and lunch with my parents (on top of the day job and making christmas presents).  tonight’s schedule involves a trip to the post office, [...]

so the fact that it’s dark every day when i get home from work and that the walls in my house are painted yellow makes it very difficult to get half-decent yarn photos, and that’s the excuse that i’m making for my lack of web-site-updating. however, if you want to get your hands on some [...]
