Fix-A-Stitch(tm) has arrived

February 18th, 2011

Last night at Stitches West Fix-A-Stitch was shown and sold for the first time.   The response was wonderful … knitters of all caliber just “got it” what a wonderful tool the Fix-A-Stitch really is.  They were able to appreciate the subleties of the short length (for quick turning), having both hooks facing in the same direction and the elongated throat.  Adela’s Yarn made lots of sales, and we added our second vendor, Abstract Fiber of Portland, OR. 

Once in a Lifetime Experience

January 1st, 2009

Preparing for my photo safari in Kenya, I kept saying:  ”It’s a once in a lifetime experience.” 

Then of course I realized:  every experience is “once in a lifetime.”

The best is forever yet to come!


A new beginning

November 25th, 2007

And so it seems that in order to avoid retrograde I must proceed.  Was it really only 12 years ago that I first used a Pine editor to create a simple website … how things and time have changed. Reading through the documenation for WordPress made me feel like a foreigner.  Words for which  thought I knew the meaning have been kidnapped and redefined in the contect of internet usage.  Where was I while all this was happening?  How did I ever get so far behind?  It feels as if keeping up with the technology is a full time job in and of itself … forget about simple things like physical fitness, running businesses .. and oh, what happnened to knitting and listening to a good book.  “Sorry everyone, I’m learning about blogging now and should come up for air around 2010.”  Of course, by that time blogging will also be obsolete!

This does have great potential, though.  I get to rant with all the fun and none of the grave looks from listeners.
