It was HOT!

That's one way to describe our annual Ravelry Yarn and Falafel Fiber Fest at Hayarkon Park in Tel Aviv this past Friday. The temperatures here were crazy both Thursday and Friday, soaring  into the upper 90's/low 100's Fahrenheit. While it isn't entirely abnormal to have temperature spikes at this time of year, it was a shame it… Continue reading It was HOT!

Yarn Destash – Round 1

Turns out that culling yarn is more emotionally challenging than books. Each yarn acquisition, whether purchase or gift, has a story behind it, but I'm slowly getting through the containers I can get to. That's another story. You can find my first round of Destash yarn and contact me on my Ravelry Trade or Sell… Continue reading Yarn Destash – Round 1

My hopes for financing both this site's ad-free status and the custom domain I bought back in 1999 through the Ko-Fi button have fallen, so from today… Continue reading And so it goes

This site and the GDPR

There’s been a lot of concern, confusion and angst by site owners here on ahead of implementing the EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation on May 25th and the impact that will have on site owners and visitors. At the moment, the only thing I can suggest is that you take the time to read… Continue reading This site and the GDPR


Buy Me a Coffee?

Due to recent changes in the CafePress agreement, I've had to close my Yarnaholic Confessions CafePress shop permanently after nearly 12 years. Hopefully you ordered enough of my sheepy Holiday cards to hold you over until I find a good place to publish them again. In the meantime, if you've found any of the information… Continue reading Buy Me a Coffee?

Move along. Nothing to see here.

I've so neglected my blog as to be criminal. I'd rename it "The Solitary Knitter" if there wasn't already a site by that name. When I stopped working over a year ago, I finally had the time to join up with the knitting group in my area.  The meetings I attended were fun and inspiring and… Continue reading Move along.
