see you this weekend at the first-ever Basilica Farm + Flea!

hello! hope you had the most beautiful Thanksgiving yesterday! i sure did, but now it’s back to work for the rest of this weekend, so i’m just popping in for a quick note to make sure those of you within range know about the first-ever Basilica Farm + Flea! if you’re anywhere near Hudson, New [...]

hunting season begins!

oh my! suddenly it’s THAT time of year again… you know, the one where you’re supposed to find (or make) the perfect gift to express just how much each of your loved ones mean to you. it snuck up on me so fast this year that i neglected to tell you about CRAFTED, the lovely [...]

this sweet video was made by the talented filmmakers i’m so pleased to be working with over at creativebug. it features Jill and me, talking with our friend and LYS-owner and sheep farmer Paula. we’re in the field with Paula’s Cormo sheep, chatting about how we all traded in our hectic lives in Brooklyn for [...]

if you know me, or even if you just read my blog, you probably have at least heard me mention my pal (and other *knot*) Jill Draper. you likely also know that she Makes Stuff. scrumptiously soft, vibrantly hand-painted, locally sourced YARN to be precise. you may be aware that she’s a brilliant knit designer.

2011 in pictures: february/march

ok, i’ve combined february and march since apparently not a whole lot happened those months… or at least not much picture-taking! still lots of snow, and i’m reminded that it was our first winter relying on our woodstove for heat. burning wood requires lots of work! fortunately i have a live-in woodsman. we learned a [...]

see you at Crafted!

HOORAY! it’s time again for Crafted: Handmade in the Hudson Valley. i’m leaving to set up at the lovely old church in a little bit, so i don’t have time to chat, but i hope you’ll come and see us if you’re in the area this weekend! it’s truly my favorite of any holiday sale [...]

stitches on parade

i have often found it hard to articulate, when i’ve been asked (by non-yarnies), just what it is i love so much about the NYS Sheep and Wool Festival. i mean, sure, there’s YARN, and fiber to spin into yarn, and fiber animals, and patterns to crochet or knit, all of which [...]

rhinebeck review

before i leave for the UK (today! squee!) i thought i’d better share my Rhinebeck adventures. i was there four days in a row, which you probably didn’t even think was possible! classes started on thursday though, and for the first time, i took one. it was a spinning class, called Creating the Yarn [...]

southern adirondack fiber festival

i’m sure that when some blogs are quiet, it means that there’s not a whole lot going on in the blogger’s life. for me though, the busier i get, the less activity you see here. i’m always trying to fix that, but it remains true… suffice to say, i’ve been a super-busy beaver since oh, [...]
