Poor crocheted Little Loopy! Several of you saw the pic of him in my blog post yesterday and thought he was a monkey! He’s been very upset, but I managed to calm him down a little.
Crocheted Little Loopy is special. The Malabrigo people crocheted a few and sent them to Sheri. How cool is that? She very kindly gave each of the Spring Fling teachers one, and gave away the other two or three as door prizes. So no, he is not available, nor is there a pattern for him.
I’m coming down the home stretch on my current project. Here is the first sock:
Here is the second sock:
Tune in tomorrow for a pic of the yarn for my next sock project, plus some sock yarn eye candy!
Yep, I’m still washing my hair with Chaz Dean WEN conditioner. Yep, I’m still henna-ing. My hair grows about one-half an inch every month so I re-henna once a month. Rather than just do the roots, I’ve been doing a full application of two parts henna to one part indigo. That’s why my color has deepened. In fact, there were some people at the Fling who did not recognize me right away with dark hair. Heh. I like being incognito.
Online Tupperware Par-tay!
Reader Amanda emailed me the following:
May 12th is the National Fibromyalgia Day of Awareness. I was diagnosed when I was only 20 years old and it felt like a death sentence. I was 20, but I felt like I was 90. I wanted to live like a 20-year-old, but I couldn’t. I had limitations that I HATED! I still have limitations, but thanks to the research that the National Fibromyalgia Association helps to fund I can live a much fuller life today than I did ten years ago. I can do things like knit every day now, when before I wasn’t able to and that’s huge for me, as I’m sure you understand.
Plus, there’s more understanding of what Fibromyalgia is and so my life isn’t as lonely as it used to be and that helps tremendously!
In honor of National Fibromyalgia Awareness Day I’m hosting an online Tupperware party with all proceeds going to support the work that the NFA does to help those who suffer from this chronic pain disorder. For each piece of Tupperware that is purchased the buyer will be entered into a drawing for a Loopy Ewe gift certificate.

Can you use some Tupperware? Please consider ordering from Amanda here. Remember, the party ends May 10.
I’m loving the toys that my BFF Pat gave my Momma to give to me! Thank you, Pat!
