Iron Dragon Shop Changes for 2021

Iron Dragon Shop Changes for 2021

2020 was the longest year in history yet also seems to have gone very quickly. Not sure how that works exactly—must be some screwed up space-time finagling… But now 2021 is upon us! I hope it will see things really turn around for everyone. All we can do until then is continue to take things one day at a time.

To coincide with the new year, there are some changes coming to the Iron Dragon Shop.

Holiday Shipping Deadlines

Gross, right?

Hidden Treasure! and Writerly Updates

Hi! Have you melted yet? It’s been very hot in Calgary recently and I’ve heard other places around the world are suffering just as much. I hope you’ve found good ways to stay cool! Me? Lately, I go to bed cuddled up with an icepack wrapped in a towel. My queendom for some air conditioning!

When it’s this hot, do you still find yourself reaching for your yarn? On July 20 I started knitting my very first sock and have been able to make decent progress with it (even had to frog and start it over from scratch) despite the heat. There are pictures on Instagram and Twitter if you’re curious!

I also couldn’t resist creating a brand new colorway that I’m really excited about!

What’s In A Name?

I’ve had this website in one form or another, and at one URL or another, since 1999. Of course, its content has changed drastically over the years. Much of what I’ve posted here since then has been retired, archived, lost, or even deliberately deleted. The Wayback Machine could probably provide a pretty amusing trip down memory lane if I dredged up the old web addresses I used to occupy.

I can still remember the moment I decided to name this site Incyanity. It’s pretty close to twenty years back: I was posting in a thread on a phpBB forum moderated by some people I knew, casting about looking for a new name for my site for whatever reason. People in the thread knew me pretty well, including my tastes, interests, and my favorite color, and then there it was: a friend suggested Incyanity, and I knew that was what I wanted to change to. So I did.
