The Bird’s Eye Shawl, designed by Diane Zangl exclusively for Happy Fuzzy Yarn, features neck shaping so it sits comfortably on your shoulders without slipping …

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.

I’m not quite dead

I’m getting better. I’m still coughing, but I’m not coughing as hard as I was yesterday, when I was half expecting to see large solid objects pop out of my mouth as I coughed. Weasels. Alarm clocks. Refrigerators.* So when all I coughed up was a teaspoon of phlegm, I felt kind of cheated. I …
