A year in review

While 2021 is wrapping up, we thought we would offer you a quick reverse chronological review of the patterns that we launched during the past 12 months.  Since last December, we have developed a total of fifteen new patterns, including garments, accessories, a cozy throw blanket, and a dog sweater! We’ve gathered them all here […]

Living in a work in progress

Yesterday, almost 200 young people gathered in nearby Brattleboro to protest racism and police brutality.  The gathering was a peaceful one where teen organizers expressed their feelings of frustration and connected with others eager to show their support for change. The rallies, protests and riots that are predominating the news are an emphatic wake up […]

A helping hand

One of the bright spots of the past several weeks is that way in which communities are working together.  Folks are showing support for those working on the front lines by wearing masks in public to protect them.  Neighbors are caring for one another by checking in with one another at a distance, and dropping […]

A wonderful visit

Vermont is a destination location, especially at this time of year.  “Leaf Peepers” and maple enthusiasts head our way to enjoy long walks to enjoy the foliage, and scuff through fallen leaves with pumpkin flavored snacks of all kinds. In the spirit of celebrating the season, tomorrow morning, we are headed to the Vermont Sheep […]

Knit, frog, re-do

One of the wonderful things about knitting is how forgiving it can be.  When we find a mistake we can work back, tinking or frogging larger sections to rework, when required. Lifelines can be added as we go so that particularly tricky lace sections or finer stitches can be more easily recovered. Undoing weeks of […]

All that beautiful color!

Our Mill is small and our space is limited.  As visitors move through our production floor on one of our tours, they often ask, “Where do you dye your yarns?”  And the answer that frequently surprises them, is that we don’t.  We don’t have the space or the water to dye skeins here at our […]
