If you have been here before, you may notice a lot of missing posts. They are not gone, just made private. I’m rebooting the site. Starting fresh. Stayed tuned for a big announcement.

We will rule over all this land, and we will call it… This Land.

Catching up…

Last Friday was my birthday, so, this past weekend was very busy which bled over into this past week. I was planning on posting 2 new features (and 1 old) this week, but, obviously didn’t get around to it. I have pictures in my camera, waiting to be uploaded. Still need to transfer all of the sidebar stuff from my old blog.

I did get week #2 posted in 52 socks. Click the tab above for a look.

In the meantime, here is my revival of Aloha Friday. First, here is the Aloha Friday song which radio stations play every Friday. I miss that. 

And here is a video with some extras about Aloha Friday wear.

My version of Aloha Friday is to post a video. Here is the first Aloha Friday video for the new blog. Hope you like it.

Tuesday is my Monday…

Week #1 is up under the 52 socks tab. Tuesdays will be 52 socks day. Mondays are always too busy with errand running to get any “work” work done.

Now that the holidays are over, I should have more time to work on this blog and add more things to the sidebar from my old blog.

This was a strange Christmas. It went by too fast and it just didn’t feel like Christmas, this year. Don’t know what it was, either. We did the usual traditions. Maybe it was because we had family Christmas on Christmas Eve morning – against our will – or maybe it was because middle child was only home for five days. Youngest child mentioned the lack of Christmas lights on people’s houses this year, attributed to the economy, I assume. Even the stores were lacking in “Christmas spirit”. Of course, it didn’t help that they had everything Christmas marked on clearance a whole week before. p.s. WTBleep.

New Year. New Blog.

I am back. It’s been a year since I last posted. This has been, quite frankly, the year from hell for me. I won’t go into details. My Etsy store has also been on hiatus for a while, and I will be reopening that, too. I’ll be listing new yarn items including socks, gloves, and other tubular things, and some new art, too.

Please excuse the mess as I configure this blog and add stuff from my old blog, etc., so, it will be in a state of flux for a while.

I will be starting three projects this year. The theme this year is socks. Project #1 is 52 socks. I love making socks. I collect sock patterns. I thought I would post links to some of my favorites. Some have been knit and some are waiting to be knit. Originally, I was going to do 365 socks, but, I figured that would run into overwhelm. So, starting next week, I will post sock #1 under the 52 socks tab.

I need to work out some more details on project #2, so, I will announce that later, probably around spring-time.

For project #3, I will be submitting a Kickstarter project involving a special kind of sock. I am working on the promo video, so, more about that, too, once it has been submitted and accepted.

Look for more Aloha Friday, and other things from my old blog. Here’s to a better, more productive, 2012.


Secret Santa Swap update.

Just a quick update to let you know what’s going on. I’m still missing notification of mailing or will be mailing from one participant. If you are that participant, please contact me!

Otherwise, great tags and everyone who has received their package, so far, is very happy. 🙂

Look for more swaps after the new year. I’m also looking for new ideas for swaps – all are welcome. 🙂

Happy Holidays!


Same as before – put Paper & Yarn in the notes.

For #12 you will receive GRASS GREEN lace with GOLD YELLOW beads. NOT black lace with pink beads as shown.

The picture is showing up now – don’t know what was wrong with Etsy.
