Posted November 26

It has taken a long time to get the energy to begin a blog, but here I am. This blog is a way for me to keep you up to date on shop happenings, new arrivals and even my personal projects. I hope that you will add it to your favorites and check back often.

Island Crew

This is the perfect place to begin is to mention that I just returned from spending part of Thanksgiving weekend at Bois Blanc Island, home to Insel Haus ( where we have our spring and fall fiber retreats (number 13 is coming up the last weekend in April and still has openings). Going to the island is a treat for me, but it was especially fun this time because I was able to take my husband, Mark, and daughter, Mariah, along. We explored the island, even two-tracking to the lighthouse (now private, but you can see it from the lake), but mostly I knit and read a lot. I decided that I needed to finally make a pair of gloves and I’ve been wanting to knit something from the book Favorite Mittens, so I killed two birds with one stone and now I have a new class to add to the winter offerings. It was a really fun knit, but not for the timid!

Flying Geese Glove

Once back from the island and safely ensconced at the shop we got our first delivery of the day: six of the brand new Victoria travelling wheels from Louet. Three are spoken for, but there are three available — at the introductory price of just $550 and that includes a wonderful carry case. I am sorely tempted to make that two available and ask Mark for one for Christmas!
