That kind of week

I am having the kind of week that really makes me wish I had a fast forward button. Except, then it would cut into my Christmas knitting time and I’m down to the wire, so I guess I have no choice but to tough this one out.

I woke up with a toothache on Monday and made an appointment for the next day, even though I’m terrified of the dentist. That in and of itself was a big deal for me, because I’m scared of the dentist. I really am. Like shaking and praying for the earth to swallow me up…

SOCK Club: Psych

With Megan-Anne and I gearing up to mail out the next installment of the Society of Caffeinated Knitters (SOCK Club) at the end of October — I’m in love with the Pie stitch marker, but you didn’t hear that from me — we thought it was time to reveal the theme we had chosen for August. PSYCH!

It’s my natural tendency to bury the lead, but since I love y’all I’m getting straight to the point: L&L is going to go though some changes over the next few weeks. It’s OK, this is normal. All young blogs get to a very special point in their lives and have… well, let’s call it…

Yarnaholics Anonymous

This is the story of how two well-meaning crafters came to terms with how they’re Yarnaholics. It’s a common story in the knitting/crochet community. A women buys her first skein of yarn and suddenly ten years have passed and her yarn stash has taken over an embarrassing large portion of her house. It has its own storage area in the basement and the office. It’s hidden inside the end tables in the living room. It’s squirreled away in clear plastic…
