On the Sixth Day of Dizzy...

I assure you that no feathered friends were harmed in any way.

On the sixth day of Dizzy, Dizzy’s deals to me…

Many stunning colors,

Acc-cess-o-ries!

Chunky bulky yarns,

Soft single plies,

Something al-pac-a,

And a great yarn for socks for my feet!

Baa’aa! I had no idea geese could be such a handful. I’ve been told that geese make for an excellent security system because they have good senses, are quick to become alerted when something is amiss and aren’t afraid to make noise about it. I can also tell you from personal experience that they are quite intimidating when they gang up and start chasing you around!

Forget high tech alarm systems, everyone should get themselves a gaggle of security geese. That would definitely keep me in line. Oh and they could wear cute little security jackets and hats, that would be so cool!

I'm glad everything is calm again. The geese are laying down somewhere comfortable, the birds are happyily chirping in someone else’s tree, and most important, the presents are safe. Though we are getting into the second half of the Twelve Days of Dizzy, and I can't guarantee things won't get out of hand again. There are a lot of exciting deals coming!


On the Fifth Day of Dizzy...

We're experiencing technical feathered difficulties and will return shortly!

Not to be the one to ruin someone’s festive bird brained idea, but I told you this wasn’t going to end well! Alright, time to round up these feathered pests and send them back to... where did we even get all of these birds from? Dizzy, you shoo them out of the tree. Alpaca, chase them towards me and the net and –

Ahh! Who let the geese out?! It’s not even time for the geese!

I don't remember the verse where we get overrun by a festive gaggle of crazed birds!


On the Fourth Day of Dizzy...

Stop squawking at me!

Is it just me, or is this heading in a festively… ominous direction? Don’t misunderstand, I love birds! But I just finished calming down about the idea of fuzzy trees, and that tree over there is close to having more feathers than needles and – Hey! Leave that present alone, you fancy chicken!

Oh now they’re all squawking at me! Quit it! Dizzzzzy! Freeeed! Tell these birds to settle down!


On the Third Day of Dizzy...

I'm a weather vane!

Ooo chickens! Oh wait, I was told not to call them that. These are faverolles, or French chickens. They’re a bit fancier in appearance, often featured in exhibitions and have five toes per foot, rather than the usual four. Apparently that makes them a little sensitive and puts them in a fowl mood if you lump them together with the “common chicken”.

Yes, that was baa’Aad, even for me. I’m such a cluck!

Now I’m no expert, but I doubt they’re paying attention to the baa’ing and awful puns of a sheep wearing a Santa hat. They’re probably way more curious about what’s in those shiny presents over there like I am. Hmm, it would seem that they’re surrounding me. That’s interesting…


On the Second Day of Dizzy...

I am not a statue to perch on!

Some thing al-pac-a!

More birds. Cute. I do hope whoever decided on this very literal interpretation realizes just how many feathered friends this song calls for. Last I checked, we weren’t running an aviary. At least I managed to decorate the tree before it, and myself, became bird perches.

That silly alpaca was supposed to take care of the tree, you know, before the event started. Instead I found him too afraid to touch the thing because the tag on it says “Douglass Fir”. Why that makes any sense is beyond me, but Alpaca wouldn’t stop muttering about how trees are not supposed to be fuzzy. Sometimes I worry about the stability of that one. I have yet to meet a tree that’s any fuzzier than I am, and “fir” isn't even the right word if you’re talking about fuzz!


On the First Day of Dizzy...

Look! I'm a pear tree!

Ok, the real pear tree is outside, covered in snow, doesn’t have any leaves or pears on it, and this partridge expressed exactly zero interest in hanging out in it. Just use your imagination! Pretend I’m a big, majestic, fuzzy pear tree.

Wait, forget that. I think fuzzy trees might be weird. I guess a fuzzy forest might be pretty neat, but would you have to brush a fuzzy tree? Oh what if they were all tangled, that would definitely be bad. And think of the shedding! Nope. Definitely no fuzzy trees.


A Merry Winter Yarn Advisory is in Effect!

The Twelve Days of Dizzy!
The Twelve Days of Dizzy!

Our 10th Annual Twelve Days of Dizzy!

We've been having this event since 2007.  Ten years - that's like 54 sheep years!  

We hope you enjoy the festivities!

What happens during the Twelve Days of Dizzy?

For Twelve Days there will be amazing themed deals, starting with one wonderful deal on Day One, two new twinkling deals on Day Two and so on up to a blizzard of twelve tantalizing deals on Day Twelve!

There will be so many deals that it might be hard to squish that many goodies into a standard size stocking!

There will be deals with themes like "Soft Single Plies", "Tweeds & Marls Exciting" and much more, so follow along with our "Twelve Days of Dizzy" story starting December 11th right here in my Blaaag!

And of course I am doing Free Shipping!  That's right - U.S. shipping is still FREE!

Don't get caught unprepared!

Make sure you have that last minute project handy and are keeping an eye on DizzySheep.com.  We'll be posting hints on the home page showing when the deals will be changing starting Monday, December 11th at 8 PM Eastern Time!  Indeed the main themed deal does start at 8 PM the proceeding day.  Why?  I'd like to beleive that we don't want our East coast friends to have to stay up late, but perhaps it's becuase I'm a dizzy sheep!

Deck the Halls with Bags of Yarny!
Fuzzy fuzzy fuzz, fuzz, fuzz, fuzz, fuzz!
