Sleeping Through the Party

I can't believe we overslept!
I can't believe we overslept!

[We interrupt our exciting Dizzy Melodrama to celebrate the New Year!]

Alpaca! Wake up!

Hmm… what? I’m going to snooze for a few more minutes. Don’t worry, I won’t miss the school bus.

This is all Dizzy's fault.  You see, Dizzy was messing with the clocks!

The result? Alpaca and I had no idea what time it was last night and we stayed up very late thinking it was earlier in the day. So we thought we had better nap this afternoon if there was any chance of staying awake tonight.  And we overslept!

This is just great. I’m not dressed in my formal attire, Alpaca is barely conscious, and we’re late for the party!

Anyway... Happy New Year’s Eve from an under-dressed gargoyle and an unconscious alpaca!  Enjoy and be safe!


A Dizzy Melodrama - Rent Part 4

I CAN'T pay the rent!
I CAN'T pay the rent!

Dizzline: "Fred, you’ve raised the rent too high!"

Evil Fred: "You MUST pay the rent!"

Dizzline: "I can't pay the rent!"

Evil Fred: "Then you must... crown me King of DizzySheep.com!"


A Dizzy Melodrama - Rent Part 3

You MUST pay the rent!
You MUST pay the rent!

Dizzline: "Fred, what’s going on?  What do you have there?  And why do you have a moustache?"

Evil Fred: "I am Evil Fred… your new landlord!  This is your new lease and I demand that you pay the rent… or else!!!"

Dizzline: "But, Fred, this rent bill is $1,000,000.00!"

Evil Fred: "You must pay the rent!"


A Dizzy Melodrama - Rent Part 2

Fred bought the building!
Fred bought the building!

Ha! Ha! Ha!

I now own the building that is the House of Dizzy!

Wait until the Sheep sees that I have raised the rent!

There's no way payment will be made and in lieu of payment I will demand the unthinkable… I will be made King of DizzySheep.com!

Fred... with a mustache?
Fred... with a mustache?

[A Dizzy Melodrama in 7 parts.  Thanks to Carolyn for the mustache and the story idea!]

Ha! Ha! Ha!

It is I, Evil Fred!

I have grown a mustache over the holidays.  Yes it is spotted, shiny and sparkly.   What did you expect of a stoney gargoyle?

Now, let’s see what chaos I can create in the world!


All Wrapped Up!

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

Hello there! I hope you 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 and then an earthquake hit to knock over any remaining shelves!

Hmmm... Perhaps that is normal...


Happy Holidays!

Where you a good little knitter this year?

Did Santa Sheep visit you and leave you woolly presents... or did he just eat all your cookies?


Twas the Night Before... Unfinished Projects

All wrapped up - we hope you enjoyed the 'Twelve Days of Dizzy'!
All wrapped up - we hope you enjoyed the 'Twelve Days of Dizzy'!

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the towns
All the knitters were knitting, but all with long frowns.
The socks were unfinished, the scarves were not done
With the thought that Christmas would come with the sun.

The children were sent to sleep into their beds,
While I sat and wondered, no cap to be Fred's!
And Bizzy with a sweater, yet to be complete,
We'd settled our brains for an undo-able feat.

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I dropped my knitting to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
At such great speed that I knocked over my stash!

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the luster of mid-day to objects below.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a wise old knitter, smiling, with no fear.

This was a master knitter, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St Nick.
More rapid than eagles his stitches they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name!

"Now cast on! now, purl two! now, knit one and purl three!
YO, five knits! YO, three purls! YO, knit two and purl thee
To the end of the row! To the spot of the mark!
Now casting off! Casting off! Casting off all!"

As fine soft wool before the fast spinning wheel flies,
When faced with a hard project, he looked for the prize.
So into my knit room, the knitter he flew,
With a bag full of yarns and many patterns too.

He looked at our projects and looked at the clock,
And then he said in a voice that did not mock,
"You might not be finished but do not despair
Spend time with your loved ones while you finish with care."

"The gift will be doubled, the joy will be more."
And away did he fly, right out the front door.
But I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he left with that wit,
"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-knit!"

Peace to all!
Dizzy
