I got a lot of email yesterday from people because my site was down, and a phrase common to most of them was “Wendyknits Withdrawal.”
I never thought of my blog as an addictive substance, but apparently it is.
“Go on . . . just scroll down a little bit more. This one’s on me. You know you want to . . .”
By the way, the stats package I use monitors my site and sends me an email if the site is down, and another one when the site is back up. So I always know what’s going on. My site is hosted with a hosting provider, so it doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with me (I got a lot of emails asking if I was okay). It just means the provider is experiencing technical difficulties.
But I appreciate your concern.
From yesterday’s comments:
I gather you have a stash that is to die for! How do you keep it organized so you can find what you want when you want it? And how do you store it to protect it from m***s?
I do have a stash, but I know there are people who have way larger stashes than I. I am definitely a lightweight in the stash department.
As recently as five or six years ago, I had no stash. I bought yarn on a project-by-project basis. But that’s all changed.
I probably have enough yarn for between 20 to 30 sweaters in my stash. That’s just an estimate because my stash is totally disorganized. Some of it lives in my linen closet. A lot of it lives in my guest room (temporarily renamed the Mouse Room), and some of it . . . ahem . . . is currently living in the shipping boxes it came in, piled on my living room floor and on the lovely handmade sofa table that really should have nothing on it but a crystal hurricane lamp.
Moths? Never had ‘em. Hopefully never will. My condo is virtually bug-free. Every couple of years a spider might venture in from outside but that’s it.
Long may it continue.
I didn’t finish the i-cord for my current Booga Bag because I worked through lunch yesterday (again — grrrrrrr!). So at some point today the i-cord will be complete.
And due to extreme fatigue brought on by overwork, I haven’t made as much progress on the PiS sweater as I’d like. Here it is:
And by popular demand, Miss Lucy and her amazing chocolate tail!
Lucy, by the way, seems as fond as Kureyon as I. I can’t leave her alone for a minute with it. If I do, hijinks ensue.
Mouse-stuffers Jen and Rose have mailed stuff that will hopefully arrive today. If indeed it does, the Mouse-a-thon raffle will take place and the winners will be posted here in a special weekend edition of Wendyknits.
If I don’t get these last entries in time, I will wait for them, so you’ll have to be patient a teeny bit longer. But I’ll let you know what’s going on tomorrow, either way.
Good weekend, all!
