I just made a chart of my total miles per month (I’ve been keeping track of all these numbers via Daily Mile since 2010) and it looks like my cycling has actually INCREASED in the past few years.
In a past life I must have REALLY pissed off someone – or maybe in this life – because the pain I’ve had the last few days is crazy. A sore back sent me to bed early on Tues, where the pain became SO bad at 3am that Gerry said we should go to the…
I love it here. I’m a woman who likes cold weather, and I LOVE chilly Summer evenings and sleep-with-the-windows-open nights. I love Minnesota. And, being a Virgo, I love home. Being home is better than anything else to me (and I do love travel!) so this is a very special time – I know I’ll…
The Olds Fiber Week is small, not a huge extravaganza, but the folks here are PASSIONATE about spinning, weaving, dyeing and – perhaps with a foot in the door this year – knitting #FiberWeek
New colors, new inspirations and ESPECIALLY new ways of dyeing yarn is on the horizon.

Provisional cast on? ICord Bind Off? Short Rows? Grafting? Creating a Thumb Gusset? These are all techniques that you can try out with this simple pattern. Note that I said SIMPLE, which is not the same thing as EASY!
We’ve heard from some of you that shipping costs can be a deterrent, and we really want to get our beautiful yarn into your hot little hands, so we’re offering flat rate shipping on all orders! No matter how much you order, you’ll only pay $5.50 for a US Domestic package, $15.50 for an International package of our fine yarns!
I’m hopeful that all of you had a MAGNIFICENT holiday, and will continue on through next week (and BEYOND!) to celebrate the light and warmth that we can create in our own lives when it’s so dark outside!
If you want to hear about our newest colors or latest batch of fresh yarns ready for purchase, follow me on Twitter or like our Facebook page and watch for the messages which start, “COLOR UP!” – that means something really good has just come out of the dyepot and it’s ready to purchase!
I really want to be able to achieve a uniformity so we can market our colors as colorways, not just as ‘one-offs.’
