Helpful IRC Tips:

  • If your chat window isn’t scrolling, scroll to the bottom of the chat manually and then click on the “#darngoodyarn” button at the top of the chat window. If successful, it should mark the bottom of the chat with a horizontal rule and start scrolling automatically again.
  • Put “/me “ in front of your message to role play.
    (e.g. “/me hugs Jen” yields “* Brandon hugs Jen” in the chat rather than “<Brandon> hugs Jen”.)
  • Type “/nick NEWNAME” to change your nickname. Warning: there are a lot of people on the IRC server so expect the generic ones to be taken.
  • If you lose connection to the chat room, the best way to get back in is to just reload the page and log in again. You may need a new nickname until the server realizes your old one is not responding.
  • If the chat window is too small for you, you can use use a full-screen version at Just put in #darngoodyarn as the channel.

    I brought some that raw silk and it have an odor to it.
    How do I get the order out? and what do you make out of it. I love the color that I brought. help

    • Jen says:

      Hey Adrienne! Which silk did you buy? You could probably gently handwash it with mild detergent and softener if you’d like, or you can use a home dry cleaning product called Dryel. Does this answer your question?
