Poor, old blog

Friday, June 14, 2013

Don’t faint or anything, but I’ve been wanting to blog a bit again lately. I know! Now you’ve gone and fainted. I hope you didn’t hurt yourself when you fell off your chair.
The sad thing is that my blogging software is so old (WordPress 2.3.1) that it doesn’t work and play well with all the […]

Website update

Monday, September 26, 2011

Hello everybody. Dave here with a quick note about the Fiber Dreams website.
We released a new version of the site a couple of days ago. Most of the changes are in the background. A lot of the server-side code has been updated, and the site’s running on a new server. The main thing you’ll […]


Monday, May 9, 2011

About 2½ weeks ago I was hit by a malware attack. I have most of my computer world put back together at this point, but definitely not all of it. Don’t ever get bitten by one of those. It’s horrible. But if you do, make sure you’ve backed up everything to an external drive. It […]

Shop list, amaryllis, and…

Shop list
We received the most recent list of shops that my patterns are in from our distributor today. Our stuff is now in 347 shops, all but five of which are in the U.S. I updated the shop list on my pattern site. The shops that are not in the U.S., and the two Internet-only […]

Server up? Down?

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

Actually the server is up, but our host has been having problems today—a denial of service attack has had them scrambling since the wee hours. Sometimes my sites will be up, others down. Email is just as flaky. I had a plan for a post for you for today, but I’ll do it tomorrow when […]

Electronic format

Wednesday, July 22, 2009

I just got off the phone with my distributor. We talked a bit about delivering patterns in pdf format. I have some stuff to do behind the scenes, but in front of the scenes, where you are, pdf sales will continue after all. Woot! I know. I am so happy. The only caveat is that […]

Tilia kits and new shawl

Monday, June 22, 2009

Dee at Posh Yarn received the Tilia patterns that I sent her before running off to TNNA. She’s kitted them up with 26 glorious colors of her luscious Diana yarn, and will be selling them starting at 8 pm UK time on Wednesday. The official preview will go up on her site tomorrow (Tuesday), but if […]

Domus Aurea knitting resumes

Thursday, May 21, 2009

What with all the business of naming this pattern, I figured I’d better get a move on, and get some knitting done on it. I pulled it out yesterday afternoon, and knit a few rows or so of the central portion before deciding that it would be really nice to know how much farther I […]

Naming the shawl: a poll

Friday, May 8, 2009

Quite a few of you suggested names for my new shawl. They’re all wonderful. In no particular order, here’s the list. Vote for your favorite one. I’ll leave the poll up through the weekend, so you’ve plenty of time. As usual, this isn’t a democracy—if I find that I like one more than the one […]

Caught in the act

Wednesday, March 25, 2009

Posh yarn arrived!
Finally. It took ages for the British and U.S. postal services to do their combined thing and deliver this fiber-y goodness to my doorstep. The yarn from Dee got here on Monday, just in time for me to take it to knit knight for show and tell. It’s so pretty! And soft. Yes, […]
