The video below pretty much says it all. But if you own a shop or would like to join me on my crusade to donate to the Red Cross to help out with what is going on in Japan, email me and let’s talk firstname.lastname@example.org
And, let’s give thanks for what we have in the now.

Great picture eh? Mike took it of me when we were on a trip in NYC after visiting my mommy. We went to this wine bar and they were closed, it was hot, I was grumpy and voila….
So I just wanted to use this time to extend to you the forum to send me any questions or dilemmas you might encounter. Did you mess up your knitting? Are you having a problem finding patterns? Did your dog run away? Shoot ‘em at me and I’ll consult my power team and get back to you with an answer!

Bonjour mes amis!
So, if you’re hooked up with Darn Good Yarn then you’re a supporter of non-”big boxed” businesses. Many of us live in communities where these publicly traded companies have bled out the small “mom and pops”. This is why I wanted to bring another great company: The Goulet Pen Company: http://www.gouletpens.com
Go check em out!

Happy Friday everyone!
So, first order of business, amazingly, I had no idea it was Friday today. You should watch the video to hear the story.
And secondly, you gotta see the awesome necklaces I made last night with the new felt balls on the site. Click here to check out the new variety.

Good morning friends!
I hope you had a great weekend. I had a great weekend. Mike had off both days so we got to spend some nice time together.
Today, I’m expecting a HUGE shipment of new yarns to get here. I’m so excited! It’s like Christmas when they get here along with a killer bicep workout because the boxes are so heavy.
I wanted to share with you my first post as a guest blogger too! http://oaxacaborn.wordpress.com/2011/01/23/guest-blog-recycled-silk-ribbon-from-nicole-of-darn-good-yarn/
What do you think?

Hi, my name is Nicole. I’m a hard working US citizen and I feel that our rights are being violated and taken away from us at record breaking speeds. Last night, I got to thinking about an upcoming flight I’m taking. The thought of the overly-intrusive pat downs and virtual strip searches of the new scanners made me go into a panic attack.
I’m now reaching out to the CEO and CFO of Jet Blue for help. The airline company leaders are the ones that can make a real difference in helping simple Americans gain their rights and dignity back.

I don’t like to get into politics or policy debates that often but this morning I had Good Morning America on in another room when I heard about the story of Michael Roberts. He is a professional pilot who refused a full body scan and was grounded. Read more of the story here.
But, Michael, good for you.
Have you been through the airport’s new search techniques recently? Holy crap. As Michael and his legal council put it, “it’s a virtual strip search”.
Infuriating, unnecessary and humiliating. Where the hell have our rights gone people?!
Have you been through a similar search and want to vent…let it out here.
