A Brief Announcement (or, Losing My Mind)

1 September 2011
  • Me: I think we need some more compression bags.
  • Mr. Trask: Why?
  • Me: For the very small amount of yarn I will be bringing to England.
  • Mr. Trask: …How small?
  • Me: Well, if we don’t get more compression bags it won’t be as small. It’ll be more like medium.

You all are really polite. I posted the most recent giveaway on Tuesday, and forgot to announce the winners of the last giveaway, and no one mentioned it in the comments, or sent me e-mail, or anything. Clearly, you know, or somehow guessed, the state of shock I went into when I found our living room couch had turned into this:

Adirondack Chairs

Those Adirondack chairs belong on the porch.

Sad but true: Mr. Trask and I are now living like very poor students. We’re sort of regressing: from too-much-stuff adults, to minimalist adults, to adults just starting to furnish their home…and now we’ve gotten to students just out of college who eat mostly yogurt.

At any rate, I apologize. The giveaway must go on! Here are the winners from the Franklin Habit post, for which the signups closed on Monday:

  1. Debbie Bliss Donegal Tweed Chunky: Jeannie
  2. Fyberspates Scrumptious Aran: Karen
  3. NFC Sock Yarn: Cathy
  4. Sheep Shop Yarn (TWO winners, because I found two more skeins): Beki and Gwendolyn

Congratulations, one and all! Check your e-mail, so you can send me your snail mail address. Everyone, check back tomorrow, when there will be more yarn to give away…and possibly books as well.

    On a lighter note, the chairs seem to go well with the hardwood flooring. 🙂

      Now that is an excellent point. There’s always a silver lining!

    Oh, your poor sore bottoms! No cushions? Those chairs (with cushions) are fine for brief visits to the great outdoors, not so good for an evening in front of the telly.

      No cushions. Maybe we should find some cushions, or pillows, or – hey! – yarn to sit on.

    Took the words right out of my mouth …. Sit on some bags of yarn! ;-@

    Haha, I have visions now of a yarn explosion as the compression bags give up the ghost and yarn erupts all over the baggage handlers at Heathrow!!
