As I write this, we are being drenched by the remnants of a tropical storm.
The gardens are thriving with all this water, and this is a PERFECT day to knit.
Today kicks off a 3 week FREE workshop for this lovely sweater
Do you have a baby you'd like to knit for? How about stashing this sweater away for a future child? Stop by on Sundays, June 21, 28 and July 5, at 10 am and knit with us on this top down baby bee sweater. The pattern for the striped cardigan is free on Ravelry, and I have worked out a chart to incorporate the bees at the bottom.
Bring in a copy of the pattern (available HERE) and join us!
12 Yarn shops of the Hudson Valley have banded together to create the Hudson Valley Yarn Shop Cruise Event. It began on Saturday, June 13, and runs to Labor Day in September. Get in your car and ‘cruise’ the parkways, highways, and country roads of this historic place we call home. This self-guided tour will give you the opportunity to experience the unique qualities that make each shop and each town beautiful.
Start by visiting Countrywool to
purchase a special project bag showing a beautiful map of the
participating shops. Inside you’ll find your passport and all you need
to participate in the events at each shop and be eligible for the
prizes drawn after Labor Day.

Knitting groups in Columbia County have gotten themselves organized on FACEBOOK's Hudson NY Knitting and Fiber Circles group page. I have enjoyed getting to know a few new folks, and some old friends, while knitting (and chatting) away. I will be in Hudson on some Tuesdays and Thursdays. (check FACEBOOK on Mondays to see who's doing what and where that week) These groups are VERY welcoming, so feel free to come and knit for a spell.
