Too Long + 1 Year!

I can't believe it has been a month since I last posted on this blog. In that time I have been from East Coast to West Coast, but still working on projects! (I promise) I also hit the one year mark of the blog, so that's exciting!

I was in New England for 10 days and managed to check out two yarn shops: The Wool Pack (in Littleton, MA) and Sheep to Shore (in Nantucket, MA). Both of these shops were spacious and the ladies who helped us were warm and friendly. This seems to be a trend in all of the yarn shops I have visited in New England!

In Nantucket I also met Karen Sheppard of Island Weaves. She inspired me with her wonderful towels and blankets with colors of the sea. She also made me want to move to Nantucket and weave full time! I hope to return to the island to learn the production method from Karen.

It has been a busy month, but I am close to finishing my multi-fiber warp scarves at the ArtSpace and I am close to finishing a crocheted bag with new yarn from the Wool Pack. I hope that I still have some readers despite my long absence!
