TNNA recap

  I intended to write about TNNA a few days after getting home. Instead I have been so exhausted I’ve been taking naps every day and still haven’t done half the things I was going to. This is what happens when I’m sick for six weeks with two viruses and then just start to recover …

12 million things are happening!

Well, approximately. I have no idea how many things are really happening. I’ve been too busy to count them or to tell you about them. I’ve been getting ready for TNNA, which means doing a ton of work. Probably more than a ton, if we’re just going by weight. Weight is probably not a good …

Dyeing like a Crazy Woman

Wow. Well, this has been a crazy month. Actually this whole year has been crazy so far. I dyed 640 skeins of Corrie Sock for Yarnbox. Actually that started last year. And it was supposed to be 900 skeins, but my supplier was waiting more yarn from their supplier in the UK, and that supplier …

Ibuprofen and Wool

Usually on Thanksgiving Day I post a list of things I’m grateful for. I missed it this year. It’s not that I’m ungrateful. I’m grateful for many things. But it was hard to focus on anything except my back pain. It’s been aching for the past month. Wednesday, after realizing I’d been saying “if it …
