Sad Photo, Beautiful Landscape

Posted by Caroline Hershey

This photo is a pretty sad thing, but what can I say. Driving across the Kingston NY bridge over the Hudson River, you could not stop and standing on the roof of the truck with my ipad taking photos was not an option. Soooo… this little glimpse of the beautiful fall they are experiencing is all I’ve got for you. But it was glorious. The NY Sheep & Wool Show was the very best. Do wish I had more time for MY shopping. If you can ever make the show, it is well worth it, unless of course you don’t like crowds!

Look at what’s been going on in my shop!

They’ve caught the bug! Hooray! They even knitted in the car going home.


Small Catastrophe in Dye Room

Posted by Caroline Hershey

I always assumed that if I had a disaster with my dyes, it would be because I knocked over a bottle of the dye solution, which really would be a disaster. But, as the case may be, it came in the form of my side-swiping a supposedly closed jar of dye powder only to find the lid not on tightly. Blue powder descended onto a box of 20 some cans of cat food, down the front of a wooden washboard, several assorted containers and finally hitting the floor.

Thankfully I had my mask on or I would be sneezing blue. YUK! I turned an afternoon of peaceful dyeing into a horrendous clean-up detail.  That was not fun. Still trying to find the lesson in that one – maybe be more careful, double check, etc, etc.  The next day proved to be much more satisfying in the dye room.

We Survived MD Sheep & Wool

Posted by Caroline Hershey

People? What people?

If you have ever been to the MD S&W show you understand exactly what I mean. And being a vendor adds a whole other level of stress to the picture. But, we got to see people we hadn’t seen in a year, catch up with a few snatches of conversation and generally had a good time. I even broke away and went to the sheep barn, and found some Romneys to hug on, shed a few nostalgic tears, and got my sheep fix for another year.  And my dyeing class was wonderful adding a new dimension to what I have previously been doing. Vickie Jensen of ProChem is a great instructor with a wealth of knowledge to draw on.

Look at what’s been going on on the Island while we were gone! Foals are dropping.


And what’s happening in the shop? We’re finishing up classes – the market bag, top-down sumer cardigan and coming up is the next installment of the washcloths. A new one every month to increase your knitting skills with new stitches. In October we’ll make soaps to package with them as possible Christmas gifts.


Bermuda Complete!

Posted by Caroline Hershey


Always a celebration when a project is finished and especially with such dramatic results. I used 7 – 50g balls of the Gina yarn and size 8 needles.  Here it is being blocked.

Enjoying the predicted dusting of snow which actually became the unpredicted 3-4 inches before it finished up this morning. Came down so hard I couldn’t see the light from the lighthouse. Glad I was snug inside and not on the water. YIKES!

The Eagle Has Landed!

On Snow Goose Pond

Eagles taking a bath? That picture never came to mind until the other day when we happened upon the eagle doing exactly that in Snow Goose Pond. Your typical splashing with the wings, gotta get the water underneath it, how about the back feathers? It was a riot to watch. He probably realized his bath time had the paparazzi attending and flew off to join his mate in a nearby tree. This paparazzi needed a telephoto lens but hopefully you have a bit of imagination.

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.
