Snow Day

It is still snowing. It's been snowing pretty steadily since Friday. The boys and I have cleaned off the driveway 3 or 4 times. I [heart] my snowblower.

The wife is getting ready to head back to Cleveland this afternoon. She has another appointment at Cleveleand Clinic. Her headaches are way better, but they still give her fits every so often. Hopefully this will be the last time she has to drive 5 hours each way to see the doctor.

Oh yeah, I'm working on a story on organic cotton yarn and LYS' (local yarn stores) that sell it. If you have a favorite LYS, please leave its name in the comment section of this blog post. I'd be happy to include them in the short article I'm doing to Eco Child's Play.

I've been a closet writer for a long time and this year I decided to take the plunge and start writing 'publicly'. I just signed on with ECP a few days ago. I'm writing craft-related blog posts for them at least three times a week. It's a great green site, so click over and see us.

Take care!

I liked the way you did your center pull ball of yarn! I made one up last night doing an older version (before I saw yours) and I'm pretty sure it's with cotton yarn. Not too sure if you've joined this revolution of recycling yarn (or t-shirts) yet, but if you find yourself in the mood to pull apart a sweater, it's fun! I haven't done more then just this one sweater (and I have a few jersey shirts on my mind to make into yarn) and I can tell you it's a lot of work! But I saw your post on cotton yarn, doubled up with my wanting to thank you for your version of center-pull ball of yarn and soooo.. thanks!
