Happy New Year!
2007 - It doesn’t quite seem possible, yet, we’re
here! This turn of the calendar is always a good time for reflection
as well as vowing to do a better job of whatever it is we think
we don’t do well enough. Somehow so many things that I reflect
on touch on fiber and knitting as it must for many of you. Just
look at Hudson Valley Magazine’s article, “Everybody’s
Doing It: Knitting” in the December issue or the latest issue
of Cooking Light where knitting is described as a fun, purposeful
pursuit that can bring fulfillment to your life. Why do I knit?
It’s therapy, it’s relaxing, it helps me organize my
thoughts. It’s social and it’s solitary. It’s
frivolous and practical. It’s thought provoking yet relaxing.
I could go on and on with “excuses”, but the truth is
I ENJOY it. It makes me feel good. I feel one way when I knit alone,
another when I knit with friends, and another when I’m sitting
with my husband watching a movie; and it’s all good. Why do
you knit or crochet? Share some of your reasons on the website message
If you’re looking for “purpose” to your knitting
or crocheting check out the Red Scarf Project and join us by making
a Valentine scarf for the Orphan Foundation. Make one at home or
come to Red Scarf Sunday on January 21.
I am thrilled to offer workshops in February with Beth
Brown-Reinsel. She is one of the best knitting instructors;
a great teacher and a wealth of knowledge. Take a peek at Beth’s
article in the Winter 2006/07 Issue of Vogue Knitting. I’m
hoping many of you can take advantage of her workhops.
While browsing through Vogue Knitting, check out the knit bit
on “A Well-traveled Yarn”. Cynthia and I had the pleasure
of meeting Dr. Nancy Shand last summer. I will soon have a scarf
knit in the wonderful camel yarn.
Please take a moment to complete the survey
on the website. Let us know what YOU need. We’ll adjust the
class schedule to accommodate your requests as best we can.
New yarns – Mountain Colors Bearfoot – one of my very
favorite sock yarns introduced solitary colors (which took about
6 months to arrive) are going fast.
Boku from Plymouth – looks something like that other multicolored
wool and silk blend yarn – but at $6.00 a ball. Take a look
at the one skein felted bag when you drop by.
Tofutsies from South West Trading just arrived and CashVero from
Cascade – be sure to take a look and feel.
If your New Year’s Resolutions include finding a“worthy
cause” think about Literacy Volunteers. As part of Literacy
Volunteers of Eastern Orange County – I can tell you we need
volunteers to act as tutors as well as extra hands for other projects.
