Early morning ups and downs

Friday, March 31st, 2006

Fake News is Bad News

Thursday, March 30th, 2006

For verily, I am full of woe. *sigh* First, look up. See that header graphic? The closeup of the Saxon braid from my Aran? That graphic used to be nicely scaled and fit neatly with my WordPress theme. Not since the hard drive crash. I have no idea what happened – I’m using the same […]

Pappa’s got a brand new bag

. . . of yarn. The Yarn Barn is having one of their rarer-than-hen’s-teeth sales. 25% off their entire stock. It was only through focused force of will that I refrained from buying any needles.
