A pattern for your entire list

With the holiday season quickly approaching, many of us here at the Spinnery have started planning and crafting our handknit gifts.  When the knitworthy list is long, smaller projects are a perfect choice; and those that can easily travel move to the top of our list.  We wanted to share our current favorite with you […]

Just around the corner

Temperatures are warming up here in Vermont and that has us eagerly anticipating Spring, which is likely to be delayed by a few more messy late winter storms.  In an effort to change our perspective on any upcoming precipitation, we’ve got a new pattern to play with: Wintery Mix. We hope that this project will have us looking […]

Spreading sunshine

Sometimes we are drawn to work with a particular yarn because the color speaks to us, at times its the texture or quality of the fiber; and occasionally our selection can be influenced by larger, global considerations.  When our choice makes a positive impact on folks we’ve never met, every one of us wins.
