Five on a Friday

My friend Kat, from college, has a lovely blog
 all about food, parenting and product reviews. She has a neat little weekly project called “5 on a Friday” That I’ve decided to join.
 Five on a Friday - What Ifs

Skeining Hero

We’ve been skeining for days…

Thank goodness Sean helps so much!
Sean’s looking to his left, at the yarn meter. It’s a Schacht meter and an Ashford skeiner. He was on skein 35 of 45. We hand skein all our yarn and then dye it, all one skein at a time. Really gives the true [...]

Marian

I’ll admit it. It was down to the wire.
I had 36 hours, a skein of Malabrigo Rasta, and a set of US 15 circular needles. It was the bottom of the 9th, 2 outs. (BTW - 46 days, 7 hours, 56 minutes, 24 seconds until Red Sox pitchers and catchers report. Just saying.)
I had precious [...]

Foodie Friday

Last week my paternal grandfather and our entire family celebrated his eightieth birthday.
We celebrated with clan members from near and far.
Everyone brought a dish to share, as is customary for our family. This means there was enough food to feed an army.
You will notice that there are no photos of food. I regret this, though [...]

A Wise Woman Once Told Me…

To never set down your knitting in the middle of a row, unless your hair was on fire. (We miss you Pam <3) Lordy, do I wish I’d listened. We’ve been so busy that it feels like I committed the terrible sin Pam always warned me about. I feel like I’ve been running in place [...]

Birds in Flight

I finally finished my Blue Bird Socks. I gifted them to my co-worker Amy. She’s a really sweet person and the colors match those of her alma mater. She has reunion coming up and was super excited to be able to wear them. I taugh Amy to knit a few months back so she appreciates [...]

Sneaky Peek…

Our Spring shipment for the Keegan Lane Yarns Sock Club for All Seasons will ship from my office tomorrow morning. I hope the members like the extras and love the fiber. This color way is my favorite to date…
I was going to use this yarn for the Chickadee Cowl, but the yarn is too thin. [...]

Baby it’s Cold Outside…

The snow started at noon on Friday and ended about an hour ago - make that around 8pm Sunday for those of you keeping track at home.  Do I mind it? Not one bit! It’s so beautiful! I hope to get some photos tomorrow when I exit the cave (our home) for the first time [...]

New Color Ways…

In the last dye batch we introduced a new color way…
This is a photo of Hadley, MA during a mostly clear night’s sunset. This is not the best sunset, but it gives you an idea of what we see nightly.
This yarn is currently available in Toasty Sock and En Pointe bases in our shop. There [...]
