Better to be bit by a bug than a coyote

Last week didn’t exist for me – or I didn’t really exist last week. Imagine, no knitting for a day due to either a virus or parasite that knocked me for a loop and caused me to sleep 18 hours a day for four days. But, I’m back, feeling mended and ready to charge back into the work week.

Better a bug than the coyotes. They howled across the road the other night. This is what they sounded like from our porch.

I managed to get some work done on a few projects. I spun and plied some luscious blue faced Leicester on its own and with some local alpaca. Since Tim lost his f***ing deer hat, Some of this may be used in the replacement.


I was ready to dabble in some pretty fiber colors in preparation for this Fair Isle Vest I want to knit for myself by Eunny Jang. I plan to use the organic merino I spun on my drop spindle on Deal Island and then dyed with all the onion skins we used during our three month stay. I may use some navy and this rose yarn as well.


I’ll be visiting my darling daughter and need some handmade items for her. I’m working on a knit market bag and may need a few for myself. Maybe I’ll actually remember to bring my own bag into the store if I made it myself!


This rug may be finished by next winter but chicken little is running around saying, ” the cabin is falling, the cabin is falling!” I hope not.


In case my coyote sound track doesn’t work above, here’s another way to hear it.

One thought on “Better to be bit by a bug than a coyote

  1. Sitting on the front porch of the cabin, I noticed some of the rafters above seemed to have twisted, implying the roof may be tilting to one side. Who knows. It may have been that way before. But I have a plan.
