Wow. I hope you'll be okay. I know all too well what it's like to hurt the ribs. I was pretty sick a few years ago and coughed so much and so hard that I tore the cartilage (bottom of ribs) from the actual bone. I cannot tell you how bad it hurt. Breathing hurt, sitting hurt, standing hurt, moving in any way hurt, and not moving hurt....LOL. So, I know your pain. Ugh, raccoons, my worst enemy! Can't seem to keep them from getting into the attic...nasty, terrible creatures! Love the reds!! Oh, and I'm one of those suffering through the -20's (with windchill) and it's terrible...at least I can imagine what it's like for it to be 70 and wearing a t-shirt outside.

Oh ouch. I hope you heal quickly!

Sam is just the cutest thing. I love that sleep face.

I also love those reds - see you at Stitches?


Tanglegirl told me about your injury - get well soon! We can't have you out-of-commission for too long.

I loooove those reds. Darn you. I didn't need that in my life. :)

Puppies really are silly. Mine apparently doesn't care what goes on between 1am and 10am. After that, watch out! Especially if you're UPS...


Ouch, feel better soon!

I'm still knitting with the indigo yarn and loving it -- this weekend I am determined to take a picture and post it.


Oooh, I love that red-over-brown yak. Tasty & delicious! So sorry about the owie. xo yr naybor Laine


Sounds like a good time to sit and knit while you heal. You need to finish some lace, right? Hope you feel better.


I hope you get better soon!

(Am I missing something, I can't find that red merino-yak in your store? WANT. Will you be at k11's spin in with fiber again?)


Envying everything but your injuries... I'm sitting here at -25 (without wind), with frozen pipes. And no red yarn or roving, or pretty black-and-white dog.
I've been through the rib injury thing, too. It seems like forever, but it does eventually heal.


My house has been taken over by red batts for my sweater spinning but as soon as I saw all the beautious reds in your post I bailed to rush over and pick up some Wensleydale to try out - had to have it! So now that I've satisfied that fiber lust....I remembered I didn't leave a comment! oops :)

Do heal fast! That sounds way too painful. Enjoy your beautiful weather, happy colors and snuggly sleepy boy :) I'm off to sit in front of the fire again to try and thaw out - hit a warm spell today at 2F - if you don't count the windchill and the new 6 inches of snow. At least the greyhounds have long legs ;-)

Golly, ribs/muscles really hurt and you don't know how many things affect them until you pull one. I "pop" a rib quite often and it is No Fun At All. Hope it settles down quickly!
You have been having fun with red!
