7 random book- and yarn-related facts tag

Captain's Log, Stardate 11.07.2008

Karla tagged me and gave this an interesting twist--she listed seven book-related facts about herself, so I'm going to follow suit, but I'm also including some yarn-related facts.

1. My TBR pile fills 3 bookshelves and 9 plastic bins. No, I am not proud of that fact.

2. In comparison, my yarn stash fills 2 plastic bins and 3 cardboard boxes. Knitters, be proud of me--the only yarn I've purchased in the past six months has been for gifts, with the exception of 4 balls of sock yarn and two colors of mohair yarn.

3. I am in the process of finishing Miss Lambert's shetland pattern for a shawl from Victorian Lace Today. I'm using Shadow laceweight yarn in Jewels color.

4. I am stockpiling books to give away for my NEXT website contest, and I'm excited because there are so many, they're already filling 2 plastic bins.

5. My secret ambition is to one day write a Regency romance.

6. My second secret ambition is to one day run a sheep farm or alpaca farm.

7. My third secret ambition is to one day actually knit up all the yarn I have in my stash so I can buy more.

I tag...
I'm so tired of tagging people, I'm letting you guys decide if you'd like to be tagged. Leave a comment here with your blog address so I can see your answers!


  1. Thanks for playing! Yeah, I'm right there with you... my yarn stash rivals my TBR stash! Goodness, if only we could spend all our time knitting and reading, huh? Well, writing, too... because if no one wrote then we wouldn't have anything to read!

    I hope you do write a Regency someday! I bet that would be a fun read!

  2. I posted this tag on my site yesterday here's my link.

  3. I enjoyed your meme!

    I love to read, but cut down on my TBR pile because I mostly use the library. I have a long list of ones I want to read.

    I don't knit. I have done a little crocheting. I dream of using all my fabric...

Year of the Dog serial novel, chapter 5

I’m posting a Humorous Christian Romantic Suspense serial novel here on my blog! Year of the Dog is a (second) prequel to my Warubozu Spa Chronicles series. Year of the Dog serial novel by Camy Tang Marisol Mutou, a professional dog trainer, is having a bad year. While renovating her new dog kenneling and training facility, she needs to move in with her disapproving family, who have always made her feel inadequate—according to them, a job requiring her to be covered in dog hair and slobber is an embarrassment to the family. She convinces her ex-boyfriend to take her dog for a few months … but discovers that his brother is the irate security expert whose car she accidentally rear-ended a few weeks earlier. Ashwin Keitou has enough problems. His aunt has just shown up on his doorstep, expecting to move in with him, and he can’t say no because he owes her everything—after his mother walked out on them, Aunt Nell took in Ashwin and his brother and raised them in a loving Christ

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures
