I got this from my dad. I’m still seeing trailers.

I’m out of TimTams.
Chocolatey goodness from Oz.
No “good day, mate!” here.

Curse you, Australian fiend!

October 30th, 2005 4 comments

Thanks to my Australian knitting secret pal, I am now addicted to Arnott’s TimTams. My Secret Pal helpfully included a note saying that the best way to eat one was to bite off opposing corners and suck a hot cholatey beverage through it. And she was right. Now I’m having hot chocolate every night and drinking the first long draw through a TimTam.

Must… hoard… precious… TimTams!

More yarny goodness

After being internetless for almost a day, it feels good to be back online. It’s like water in the desert, I tell you!

I did go back and get more Cherry Tree Hill. Sadly, they did not have the Indian Summer in the merino boucle, although I picked up a few more skeins of it in the Ariel.

Pics below the cut.

I might have bought a little yarn.

Just a little.

Many pics below the cut.

Everything must go at Crazy Tvini’s!

Yarn store pics

October 23rd, 2005 40 comments

If you don’t knit, you probably won’t care about this at all.

Pics of what’s left in the yarn store are here:

As you can see, the Noro’s been picked over somewhat. Lotta Kochoran left, not a lot of Iro or Big Kureyon. And why is there so much pink and red Cascade? Is that a less desirable color? There are exactly four skeins of ArtYarns superwash merino for socks, and four skeins of their silk in the matching colorway, on a shelf with the books above the Cascade.

There’s still a lot of Mango Moon stuff, but none of the sari silk. Some Cherry Tree Hill, lots of Trendsetter, lots of Berroco.

If nothing else, I know a couple of talented dyers who might like a crack at the white Crystal Palace Cotton Chenille. Hm.

DR weddings

October 23rd, 2005 4 comments

Sometimes I look at my life and all I have to do, and I think, “you know, a leave of absence from Dragonrealms might be helpful.”

Then I have a nice fun wedding like Roxana and Sunhammer’s last night, and I realize that it’s pretty rewarding and I’d miss my DR compadres if I didn’t see them.

I heart Dragonrealms.

I was presented with the possible opportunity to buy the entire contents of a yarn store which is going out of business for wholesale cost.

How far into e-commerce do I want to go?

I have no idea what to do.
