SoXperience 2010 Registration Information Posted

SoXperience is ready!

All the workshops are lined up, the Island Motor Inn on Chincoteague Island is ready for us, and boy are we ready for spring after this last blizzard. Thankfully we did not lose power this time. Our grandaughter Jaina’s school did have the roof collapse on part of it. Wonder what they will do? All schools in the area are closed until Tuesday of next week and there is a state of emergency issued so no one is to be on the roads. The size of the equipment that is being used to clear the roads keeps getting bigger and bigger. Dan said the last plow which went through must have been from the forest service for pulling logs. Gigantic! that was two days ago and the roads are closed once again.  Soooo…. Looking forward to the Spring Garden & Flower show in April which will be the same weekend in April as our SoXperience. To find all the information about SoXperience just go to that link on our website.

The Blizzard Cometh

Posted by Caroline Hershey

jasmineThe snow has started falling and it remains to be seen if the predicted blizzard develops as they promised. We are set to outlast it with our knitting projects lined up. I’m working on an Easter basket from one of the Fiber Trends patterns, alternating that with the shrug and vest. Gotta keep a lot of them in the works. And to lift our spirits considerably, the winter jasmine we brought in last week has opened up along with the pussy willow and red bud. The red bud looked absolutely dead and took a day or two to start swelling but now we see color. But the jasmine has been gorgeous. So, perk up, spring is coming!

SoXperience 2010 on Chincoteague Island, VA

SoXperience is in the works for this year and will be held on Chincoteague Island, VA on April 10-11th. Even though we are not settled in our new shop on the Island, we have rented a conference room overlooking the bay at one of the hotels and will hold this year’s event there. Wendy Johnson of Wendy Knits is graciously allowing us to use one of her sock patterns, called the Seaweed Sock (how appropriate!) for one of our workshops. Please check back for details and registration information. It will be a great weekend full of info, techinical tips, and plain good fun.

Big Needles, Little Needles

Giving your hands a break

Thank heavens for being able to switch back and forth between large and small needle knitting. I am knitting a little shrug out of Rowan’s Lenpur Linen on a size 4 needle, lenpur-linencasting on in excess of 100 stitches for the back. WHEW! colourscapes1And of course the edging was on a size 2 in seed stitch. Loved finishing that edging. Sweet to change to the Rowan Colourscapes yarn on these lovely size 8 needles and only cast on 49 stitches for working a side to side vest. The color changes are terrific by the way.


The yarn I ordered over the net has arrived safely today. I am delighted with the colours & can hardly wait to get knitting. Last year when I was in Germany I purchased some of the Regia brand & was wondering how I would get some more until I found your website.Thank you again for your efficient service.
