I've had a tough week. Or two.

My wheelchair of choice - of the sparkly pinkish/purplish variety - has been out of commission. I ran into a table at work - which I've done hundreds of times with little to no damage - and jarred something in the joystick, rendering it inoperable. Then my backup wheelchair started having issues, with the battery dying much, much quicker than normal. Oy to the vey!

Then one of my teeth started hurting, so I made an appointment to see my dentist. Being a bit lackadaisical in going to the dentist in a while has come back to haunt me. My sore tooth turned out to be two problem teeth, one of which needed a root canal and both needing crowns.

So finally it's Friday. I've been root canalled. Both wheelchairs have been fixed. Sounds like a great night to relax and make something crafty, right?

Not so much. My family is having a garage sale over Labor Day and I'm in the midst of sorting through all my belongings for crap* to sell. And trust me, there's a lot of crap.

It's going to be a long weekend.

*Note: Hippos and gorilla not for sale. They're definitely not considered crap!


I'm in business!

As mentioned previously, I've been very into knitting, dyeing and spinning lately. One of my favorite fiber-related things to do is hand-dyeing/hand-painting yarn. Well, as much as I wish it weren't true, I can't knit/crochet fast enough to get through the yarn I've purchased, not to mention the skeins I've been dyeing.

So anyway, I opened a new Etsy shop - little critter knits - with some of the yarns I've done so far.

And on Thursday I made my very first sale! I am so excited. Here is the skein, named Pink Grapefruit, that was purchased.


Here's hoping to more sales in the future!
