In celebration of the first hints of Spring that have appeared in Vermont this week, we have a new pattern to share with you that has made our winter months more colorful.  We’ve been hard at work over the past several weeks knitting up samples that have made us feel like artists.

Holiday Knits – toasty toes

All kinds of people stop into the mill to visit us.  Often the group includes a knitter or two as well as some friends and family who are along for the ride. We love to ask our visitors what kinds of projects they like to knit, and often the non-knitters in the group will chime in […]

Queen Anne’s Lace and Circular Shawls

There is a bumper crop of gorgeous flowers growing by the side of the road at the Spinnery this week.  These blossoms have us thinking of circular lace shawls that might mimic their delicate finery.     One of the most widely knit circular shawl is the Pi Shawl from Elizabeth Zimmerman.  Over 2,100 Ravelers have […]
