I'm famous

Well, not really. Today I got a packet from Interweave Press, asking me to grant them exclusive rights to my pattern in Handwoven from 1987. Ideas about copyright aside, I was 10 years old in 1987, so there must be another person with my name out there. What's crazy is that if I do a google search for my name, the only results that turn up are me. Who is this other person? DP said that I should have requested a copy of my pattern to check for errata :)

I also got my December heating bill: $300!!! I called the gas company and asked if I could get someone to check my meter, and they said no way. I think something's wrong, because I keep the house at 60 degrees and our furnace is only 5 years old. You can bet that if my bill had been too low, they'd have been over here asap.

I'm about a third up the cuffs on my SiL's socks, and boy is this yarn splitty. I think that if I wasn't doing cables I wouldn't have a problem, but it makes me dread the cable rows.

I discovered a gross bug infestation in one of my bags of handspun yarn. I had to throw the whole bag away: 3 skeins of alpaca, 1 skein of linen and 1 skein of silk. Thank goodness I keep my yarn and fiber in different places and bags. If I had to chuck everything out I'd be quite peeved. I'm now afraid of what else might be living in my stash.

Ha! Take the fame and run!

We just found some bugs in my museum. Ew indeed. It's enough to make a person want a deep freezer for her fiber stash!
