A Laugh a Day

There are proven health benefits to laughing.  Studies show that just a few minutes of laughter can lower your stress levels and blood sugar, raise your natural antibodies, and help you get a better night’s sleep! I prescribe the following photos, guaranteed to make you smile with no nasty side effects (except perhaps the urge to buy more yarn).


Ball of Wool Deckchair

Ball of Wool Deckchair by Robert Bailey, found at Thoughts from the Bus Stop. Photo by Ashley Pickering.

This chair was made circa 2005  for a competition to design an Alternative Deckchair.  Ok, ok – so these are knitting needles – but come on.  It’s still pretty funny.  The only problem is that I would start to crochet my chair into something like a lovely blanket, and soon I would have no chair! ¹


Being a crocheter is sorta like being a magician.

Found on Facebook.

What is it about cats and yarn?

Sorry friends.  That’s just the way the yarn tangles.



Sew-in labels by Sublime Stitching.


My grandmother used to make me the most adorable outfits when I was young, always accompanied by a “Made by Grandma with Love” label.  I wonder if she would have used these if they had been an option…
