Or this one:

Eleanor Scarf--spun from Eleanor's undercoat and knitted in my favored checkerboard pattern.

Dizzy Blondes: 
Finally! I washed some coat from Baron. On to the combing...!

Strategy:

Make YES Happen



Something I Really Like:

Dizzy Blondes: 
Baron helpfully continues to blow coat! A bit about the eternal issues of spinning doghair. Weaving it: so far it has worked better as weft than as warp. As warp, the hair did not stand up well to friction from the heddle.

Strategy:

Win-win solutions: the end of all good negotiations.

The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People
The Happiness Advantage

Put a Lid On It:

No, not really...
