Dudes. My store is closing. How's that for a kick in the ass? Yes, sometime in June, Knitting Arts will close it's doors for good. Jan, the best yarn store boss in the world, will be focusing on her design business and spending more time with her family. I'll be living in a box under the highway 17/280 interchange knitting with Red Heart.
Needless to say there's been a mad scramble to scoop up yarn to tide me over until I find a new LYS. We shall not mention the fact that are at least 4 other fantastic yarn stores within 15 miles of my home, one of which I can walk to. I'm taking my justification where I can these days, true or false.

And finally, here we have fish tank inhabitant #602. To say I've been having problems with this tank is a mild understatement.
A Pseudomugil signifer, also known as a Pacific Blue Eye. No, I didn't take this picture, I stole it off the innernets. I think mine is a girl but she's been decidedly mum on the subject. These little fishies are from the East coast of Australia. I figured if they could fly all the way from Australia to California they should be able to handle the Tank Of Death. Maybe.
