Welcome to our newest members!

As a reminder: don't forget that you need to copy and paste the alt-webring ring code into your blog before you will be activated. There are about a dozen blogs which are inactive right now because they're only showing the old RingSurf code. If you aren't sure how to find the new ring code or how to add it to your site, just send an e-mail to msmorenna (at) gmail (dot) com or leave a comment here.

RingSurf Progress and Name Change

I finally have control of the RingSurf ring again, so I can delete it yet again.  I never did get a reply from their support people but it appears that there was a server problem and they restored the data from an old copy.  I am once again deleting blogs and will then delete the ring itself.

As always, feel free to let your fiber friends know they are welcome to join the ring at

Name Change
You may have noticed that the name listed under "About Me" has changed.  Morenna is actually the name of my primary online gaming character. Much as I would like to claim it as my own invention, I cannot. I actually saw it at a fiber festival many years ago and borrowed it to name my game char. It has since become something of an online alter-ego for me. Over time, I came to the conclusion that it's a bit unfair to Robin Edmundson for me to continue to use the name she came up with for her company, regardless of how beautiful that name is. (By the way, Robin dyes gorgeous rovings and yarns. You really should go check it out. I'm particularly fond of the Hummingbird colorway.) So I have changed the name associated with my blogs. Yes, it's confusing and I'm sure it'll aggravate some of you, but it's the right thing to do, so I'm doing it. My apologies to Robin.

The new name is Ruby Louise, which is a combination of my grandmothers' names. I find this particularly appropriate since both of my grandmothers knit, crocheted, and/or quilted. I actually have my paternal grandmother's knitting and crochet tools, including one sweater in progress.

Anyway, I wanted to let you know in case you were confused by seeing Ruby Louise instead of Morenna.  It's still me.  You can still send e-mail to me at msmorenna (at) gmail (dot) com.
