Art! Yarn! (not Artyarn!)

We have been very busy lately. Last weekend our co-conspirator in knitting pursuits, Maureen, had an opening at The General in Almonte.  Here is Maureen (incognito in her shades) enjoying the sunshine with another artistic friend, Diane Lemire.  I am acquiring quite a collection of Maureen’s pottery, well whatever my husband and son don’t break inadvertently.1IMG_1704

Back on the home front, it’s SPRING! (Although with a week of 30+ degrees, Summer is trying to elbow its way in).

This is the view from our studio. It looks just like our yarn, Wasabi! Should have called it Dandelion Field??


Kathryn has been furiously working away to create pieces for the upcoming Artists Studio Open House in Farrellton, and then next weekend, the art show in the Glebe. I’ll be helping out Friday night at the Open House, so come by for a glass of wine! Or a painting, or a skein of yarn – we will have a yarn table 🙂  You can also come by on Saturday or Sunday.1IMG_1731I think this is one of my favourites:a1IMG_1733 This rooster seems to be saying “You will be MINE” or at least those crumbs on your shirt will be.

I have been dyeing to add to our own stock for summer markets and upcoming fibre events. We have a few new colours and once Kathryn is back to dyeing more often, she will work on more new formulas. Here is a fun lemony one: Poppy Seed Cake (the name “Ants in Lemon Curd” was a close runner-up). 1IMG_1734

I will tease you with more pictures of piles of yarn, waiting to go to a good home (who needs puppies and kittens when you can have yarn).


I actually have lots of knitting to show but will write a separate blog post about that.

I will leave you with more nature… in my driveway! A fawn! Molting! (We have lots of deer around here but it’s still exciting when they come to eat my weeds).
