Last Day of a Decade

I am ready to bring in the New Year with style!
I am ready to bring in the New Year with style!

New Year's resolutions are important. It's always good to set goals and make sure you're heading in the right direction... or any direction at least.

That's why I took the liberty of making some resolutions for my coworkers! I want to help them better themselves and grow to their fullest potential.

Let's see, first of all I think Bizzy should supplement knitting with a new hobby. Let's face it, at this point I'm pretty sure if you put needles and yarn in her hands while she was asleep, you'd have a new sweater in the morning.

Fred should definitely work on bringing a larger variety of lunches to work this year. I'm getting pretty bored of stealing his yogurt granola crunch.

And Alpaca? Alpaca needs to work on getting shorter. He's so tall it's hard to fit him in focus with the camera.

As for me, I tried to come up with something, but the only thing that came to me was eat more delicious clovers and sell more yarn. I am happy to work on both of those!

Have a fun and happy New Year's Eve!


What Year is it??

Maybe I'll just call it the year after oh-nine
Maybe I'll just call it the year after oh-nine

Tomorrow is New Year's Eve.

It occurs to me as I make my large list of New Year's resolutions that I'm not quite sure what to call this fast approaching shift in calendar...

Think about it for a moment, how are you going to say what year it is about to become?

Did you say two thousand ten or twenty ten?

It's funny, before the year two thousand it was always split in two parts, like nineteen-ninety-nine - no one said one thousand nine hundred ninety nine. But then after two thousand, it didn't make sense to say twenty-oh-one or just twenty-one, so it changed to two-thousand-one.

Then to make it all easier, usually people just shorten the whole thing and say ninety-nine or oh-two, but that doesn't work well when you just say ten! Ten what? Ten cookies??

So here we are, a year with a number that breaks the norm and I am thoroughly confused...


No Coal for You

I don't know why people think coal is bad... it's pretty cool actually!
I don't know why people think coal is bad... it's pretty cool actually!

I hope you all are having great holidays, but I'm pretty upset. I was unable to send you all my special present with your twelve days orders...

Apparently coal weighs too much to add to your shipment and would throw the Dizzy Shipping algorithm off and bla bla.

It's not that I'm saying you've been a bad knitter this year or anything. I just like rocks and coal is a very useful and special one. Did you know it's different than every other rock because it's made out of organic carbon?

Anyway, I hope you're enjoying your fuzzy yarn, but you were all supposed to get coal too... maybe next year.


Cookie Overdose

Mmm cookies...
Mmm cookies...

Ok, maybe... and I do stress the word "maybe"... I've had enough holiday cookies over the past few days.

I don't want to jump to any conclusions or point any fingers or anything. I mean in addition to eating a lot of cookies, I have been breathing a lot too, so it could be just as likely the cause. But I am feeling a little strange with bursts of bouncy energy then a bit of a drooling stupor.

I suppose there's no need to be concerned though, I'm bound to run out of cookies eventually. Oh holidays, why are you so deliciously bad for me...


Where is Dizzy?

Where is Dizzy?
Where is Dizzy?

We interrupt our normal Dizzy Daily Deal to present this late breaking news.

As midnight EST approached, we all became concerned because Dizzy was not to be found.

Fortunately Fred has located the silly sheep.  Dizzy is stuck in the store room and will not be able to personally present today's deal.

However, in a prepared statement, Dizzy would like to thank everyone for their support of the 12 Dizzy Days of Christmas!

Dizzy is working on fulfilling everyone's order - part of the reason for being stuck in the store room.  For those confused by the order of shipments, Dizzy is using a proprietary algorithm - in other words, no one understands the logic.  Therefore you might have something ordered last, shipped first.

We hope to have Dizzy freed from the store room shortly.

With the 12 Dizzy Days and the holidays - and now Dizzy stuck in the store room - we are running a little slower than usual with our fulfillment and we appreciate your patience.
 


Wrapped Up

I may look festive, but this is the official Santa Sheep Order Packaging uniform...

Hello there! I hope you've had and continue to have lovely holidays with delicious food, good times and plenty of fuzzy yarn!

I'd say things have calmed down and are back to normal around here after the grand twelve days event, but let's be honest - the yarn storage room looks like a couple of football teams were thrown in for a few plays, then an earthquake hit to knock any remaining shelves over.

Don't worry though, Santa Sheep will sort everything out as quickly as possible!



Twas the Night Before...

Shhhh!  Do you think anyone heard that??
Shhhh! Do you think anyone heard that??

Twas the night before Christmas and placed in your living room,

A pile of cookies with milk left for you know whom...

 

The scene was picture perfect and ready for Saint Nick,

Until Santa Sheep arrived to play a wee trick.

 

For cookies are Santa Sheep's secret delight,

and it is well known they are left out on this night.

 

With great masterful stealth and tip toeing grace,

Santa Sheep moved quietly towards the cookies' resting place.

 

At least that is what Santa Sheep had envisioned and planned,

But we all know that this sheep is balance challenged.

 

So if later tonight you awake from a crash and a clank,

As your living room lamp falls against your fish tank,

 

It isn't Saint Nick, but a mischievous cookie crazed sheep,

Who loves entertaining you all when you should be asleep!


On the Twelfth Day of Christmas

Baaa Baa Baaaaa! Merry Christmas!
