Busy Spring!

Posted by Caroline Hershey

We have fallen behind in the blog because it has been incredibly busy here. First the Quilt Show in Hampton, then Knit Lite in March, Margaret Fisher in March, SoXperience in April just a couple weeks ahead of the MD Sheep & Wool Show. Lets catch up in these next posts.

This is the group from Knit Lite. We studied the Slick Slip Stitch over the weekend with lots of models and patterns supplied for trying it out in the afternoon.

What was also incredibly neat was the sharing of projects on-going and finished. A wealth of inspiration for all of us.

We Survived MD Sheep & Wool

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.

Celebration on Chincoteague Island

We gathered in Robert Reed park and enjoyed the lovely breeze off the Chincoteague Bay and knitted the afternoon away.

We were even able to help a new knitter with questions. The day was a sucess!

KnitXperience Lite

What a weekend! For a lite weekend, we got pretty intense with the cast ons and bind offs. And then the majority of us discovered Portuguese Knitting. Fun and educational for all.

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.
