I do EXIST, Canada Post says so!

Okay, I knew the package would be good.  I knew it would be filled with personality of the giver. I kinda thought with football season starting it might just be filled Denver Bronco coloured yarn…… Wow, is all I can say is wow.  I have no witty smart mouth comments.  I can’t begin to tell …

My secret pal is spying on me….

I’ve spent the morning searching the house for the cameras. A couple of days ago I was finishing off N’s sock (the knee high in pink) with a short row toe and I was searching madly for stitch holders. I found 2 out of the 900 million (or so) that I’ve had over the years. …

I FINALLY figured out how to get the camera working (solved the iPod issue as well, I’m a genius) and so now I can post the many many promised pics from the last few weeks. First Mr. McGoo has a birthday and while he loved the singing and the candle blowing he HATED the sparkly …

Note to self….

Oy Vey….when you post a comment to the Yarn Harlot and you happen to be first, perhaps you should check your latest post because your traffic is going to go way up.  All I can picture is knitters the world over spewing coffee at their screen’s or accidently dropping stitches when they ‘zip over’ to …
