Pardon the indelicacy of my phrasing, but that says it best.
I have to close comments on my blog entries after a few days, thanks to hackers going in and leaving links to porn sites. And yesterday I removed my blogroll (list of links to other blogs) thanks to hackers.
And when the blogroll service was restored, my blogroll was empty, even though they were supposedly restored from a back-up. I hadn’t gone in and deleted anything after the hack attack, so I don’t know why my list disappeared.
I initially decided to not use the blogroll service from now on, but it’s considerably more convenient then hardcoding links, so it’ll be back. Slowly. Because the ability to add links was down for most of yesterday, and still is unavailable.
Some people seem to have misunderstood and thought I was commanding everyone to stop buying yarn. Those of you who left rather vehement comments on my blog understood that I wasn’t recommending a yarn diet for one and all. The comments were all in good fun. But believe it or not, I got a couple of downright nasty emails about it. Along the lines of “How dare you tell me what I can and cannot buy?”
Okay, I’ll stop whining about stuff.
I am proud to announce that I have bought no yarn since November 6.
It’s the Big Booga Bag, ready for felting! Ooh! Ooh! Ooh!
And the pieces after felting.
Lucy was surprisingly “paws off” during this process.
We have gone over six baskets! Wow!
