The Spring feeling! Tulips from a friend sparked the fresh creative feeling and I created my Spring stripe sock yarn. It is 450 yards and creates nice size stripes on socks! Available only on my website in a limited quantity and ready for preorder and shipped out the beginning of June. Visit yarn/online only section of the website.
The Chancellors Sheep & Wool Showcase in Clermont, N.Y., on April 21 (11 a.m. to 4 p.m.) marks the start of the new fiber season. It’s so great to see old friends and meet new ones! It’s a very small show, but it is a great day and the scenery is just beautiful at the Clermont State Historic Site along the Hudson River. I hope if you are near the area you will come on out and enjoy the day. It’s one of the best things to see and talk to knitters, crocheters and fiber artists and see all the creative minds together in one place.
Not only is April 21 the Sheep & Wool Showcase but it is also Local Yarn Shop day! I hope you will all get out and support the local yarn shops — we don’t want them to go away. We need to support them so they will be there when we need classes, advice, supplies and of course for a knitting emergency! Lots of local yarn shops are having special events that day. Maybe while you are in the LYS you can ask about indie dyers that need your support, too!
