I’ve been having such a wonderful time this week staying with Gudrun and her family in New England.
We’ve visited a couple of yarn stores, of course! The first was an adorable, friendly store in Brattleboro called Knit or Dye that Gudrun and her friend Julia took me to.

There were lots of cute knitted decorations dotted around the store, like this huge fish.

And then there was Webs. My talk and trunk show on Thursday went well, at least I had fun – I never really end up remembering what I talked about after these things, so if you were there I do hope it was interesting. Connie, who I had such a wonderful time with in New York, came up for the weekend and then Angela Hahn also joined us for dinner on Friday night. Angela had to head home on Saturday, but neither her or Connie had ever been to Webs and I’d convinced myself that knitting Vine Yoke before Rhinebeck was a crazy but doable idea and that I needed yarn so we had to visit again.


Connie found a sample of her Henley Perfected.

And Angela’s gorgeous hat from the cover of Vogue Knitting was also there.


It’s always fun to see my book on display too!

I also spied Laura’s Thermal.
Webs certainly is huge, there’s so much yarn that it’s almost overwhelming, worth visiting just to revel in so much in one place, but everyone is also so friendly and helpful that it’s surprisingly easy to find what you’re looking for.

We reluctantly said goodbye to Angela and headed back to Gudrun’s where we cooked up a feast.


Several designer / knitter friends came to share it and it was so wonderful to hang out. I love what I do, but most of the time it’s just me working at home by myself.

There aren’t really that many of us doing this and we’re very spread out so I really cherish these times when we can gather together in real life, especially when it’s not for work, although we certainly can’t stop talking about knitting!
