I knit. And I cook, write, take pictures. All for one low price.

warm welcome

This basket of my handdyed sock yarn will be on display and for sale at the MayFest this Saturday in Bennington, VT. Melanie of Dye-namics Yarn is there with her yarn and graciously took a basket of mine with her today. Thanks Melanie!! She is also hard at work getting her website re-vamped, so our yarns will both be for sale online!


This lovely lady is Liz Cassidy, the owner of The Spinning Room in Altamont, NY.
She recently began stocking my handdyed sock yarn. Prior to this armful, she had already sold 12 skeins within 5 days, and more orders were being placed by customers.



Today I went back because she needed more!





This is the new pile --- of you are in the area, go check it out.



I am glad my yarn has found yet another nice home. Thanks to all my and Liz's faithful customers!!
On Saturday I will be at the Massachusetts Sheep and Woolcraft Fair in Cummington, at the Sliver Moon booth. I do hope you will stop by and say hello!
Pretty soon, those of you who live further away from me, also can order up some Roasted Eggplant, Spilled Wine, Stawberries and Cream, and a bouquet of Hydrangeas or Fresh Lavender...(Yes, I've been having fun with color names.)

Congrats on your sales! Your sock yarns look beautiful. I hope you enjoy the Cummington fair. Wish I could go and meet you, but I'm missing it due to going to Fla. to visit my mother. Hope it's great!

I bought a skein of Poiple from the Spinning Room the other day - it feels and looks so nice, I can't wait to start knitting with it!

You are unbelievably creative and productive. Can't wait to be able to order some of your yarn online. Love those color names! Can you reveal what yarn and dye you use?

Must. Have. Some. of. That. Yarn! Love that bright yellow in the middle...and the green...and the bright blue/turquoise. And you know how much sock yarn I already have, right!!!!
