Long Time Gone

Yeah, me and the Dixie Chicks.

We've both been a long time gone, but I suspect that more people have been awaiting their return than the number who have been awaiting mine.

But I'm back.

I haven't blogged for about a year. I've been lying low and making all sorts of excuses for everything for far longer than that. The fact that I was ill doesn't negate the fact that I've done wrong by a bunch of people, but I'm back again and trying to make things right.

So ... here's the deal. I owe either money or yarn or roving to at least half a dozen people; maybe more. And now that I'm sane again I'm going to do everything I can to do to fix it. It won't be all fixed this week but I'll get 'er done.

If you're mad at me and would like to take a swipe at me in public, please feel free to post a comment. My comments are moderated but I'll take it on the chin and publish them all. I moderate the comments merely to avoid spam. If you'd like to settle the issue in private then my email is The deal I'm offering is, if I owe you some product then you have a choice. I will either a) give you your money back, or b) give you the yarn you ordered AND give you your money back or c) send you what you ordered and then give you another skein for free. Lemme know what you want. I'm sane again and want to make this right for all of us.

Yeah, it's sort of painful to admit in public that I've fucked up. But I did. I have lost most of the emails from when I was selling yarn long ago. My husband has them on hard drives from old computers upstairs but I'm going to get that data back just about the time he actually cleans the bathroom. Which is never. So I'm doing the best that I can here.

Public flagellation time is over. I just thought this would be the best way to get this out there.

And now I'm going to sleep. I'll actually blog about something other than how awful I am tomorrow, once I wake up.

Stay tuned. We may discuss why "traffic calming" leads to rage, at least when most of the drivers are geriatric.

I have not been wronged by you. I admire you for admitting there was a problem and not faking your own death. Or having your twin sister suddenly take over the business. I admire you for not just making it right, but going above and beyond. I admire you for putting your shit out there and being honest and just for being you.
Of course, I do have things in my head. So.....
Welcome back, I am glad to see you.
Wait, what? You're "sane"? Who are you and what have you done with our Rabbitch?! (hee hee!)

Two words: bacon yarn
(I'm still interested if you are interested in making it!)
Welcome back.
So happy to see you back!
You don't owe me anything. I don't even knit. But I always enjoyed your blog, and I'm glad you're back. I hope whatever evil forces have been at work in your life are through with you now for a long time.
Nice to have you back. You owe me neither money nor yarn, but I'm glad you're back among us.
I have no gripe with you apart from your prolonged absence. I've missed you. Ad I am happy to "see" you here again!
Hi, Rabbitch --

Happy to see you peeking out of the sucking black hole and back into the light. You don't owe me anything -- the gorgeous yarn I bought from you at Sock Summit 2 is a cherished part of my fiber petting zoo, and I'm happy to hear that you are returning to the crafting of beautiful colors. Best wishes!

Not wronged by you, either.

I have, however, missed your out loud musings and honesty.

Glad you're able to recommence blogging.
I haven't been wronged by you either. So glad I stopped by today-- I have missed you!
I'm one who's missed your posts, too; we all go insane from time to time, but it's nice to know folks are still hanging in there with you ... glad to have you back!
Hi! Good to see you!

Glad to have you back, and I hope your health is fully restored.

Money problems can look awful, but there is always a way to sort t hem out. They are fixable. Take heart!
Ditto to what everyone else said. Yours is one of my must-read blogs, and I'm so happy you're back. (You ARE back, aren't you? This isn't just a big tease, is it?)
Glad to see you back. I have certainly missed reading your blog. Hope things are better for you now.
