Farmers

Are Farmers Forever

Well, as the saying goes, you can take the farmer off the farm, but you can’t take the farm out of the farmer. We have enjoyed tomatoes and cucumbers as well as fresh parsley and basil for salads from the plants Dan has grown on our concrete block patio. And even the planters in front of the shop yielded sweet potato types from the vines he grew in them. They look awful pink. Wonder what they’ll taste like, maybe woody, bland? In the past it has been us canning and freezing produce for the kids to take home but this year they have shared their garden bounty with us. How sweet it is.

Where to find the pattern:

Look on Ravelry under projects for K’acha. Also, Cat Bordhi has the pattern free on her website at this link. Sorry I didn’t think to put them on the other day. Thanks!

Finished en route

Just wanted to share the moebius I finished up while en route to the Quilt Show. After the initial cast on where I used Cat Bordhi’s method for continuous moebius, it was smooth sailing and only required a few hours to finish. This is what I will be teaching in October in class in the shop on Chincoteague Island. It will be fun and in time for you to make Christmas presents too! The yarn, Mirasol K’acha, is lovely to work with also.

Hats, Hats, Hats

Beads and Whales?

Hats seem to be what’s flowing off my needles lately. Cooler weather is coming and my grandson, Naaman, confided in me that the hat I knitted him last year has a hole in it. Well, I think grandma can take care of that although these two that I just completed won’t do for him at all.

This is a beaded hat using a Cabin Fever pattern and Frog Tree Meriboo. This yarn has become so popular, anyone who squeezes a ball is in love immediately. We have the kit available complete with beads (although you don’t have to bead it if you don’t want) on our kits page which is soon to be uploaded to the website.

Then there’s the Whale of a Tail hat which is too cute. Also a Cabin Fever pattern and this time I used Colour 4 You yarn which has great colorways in solids and plains. That little whale tail on the top is perfect for the tiny babies, maybe this will go over better than the blanket with our little Joshua. We will have the whale hat kit available on our kits page this week also.

Warm wools in just a beanie hat design are what the college kids want just to pull down over their ears. Who am I kidding, they want to pull it down over their hair on bad hair days! When winter comes, our family looks forward to discovering them tucked away to pull them on in Philly, towns in Delaware and here on the beaches when the cold hits.
