Participated in the first annual I-91 Shop Hop this past weekend, which was a tour of 11 local yarn shops all along I-91 between Putney, VT and New Haven, CT. My friend, and fellow knitter, Catharine came down from Albany to make the road trip with me. We had a great time catching up, scouting out some new shops, and finding some great deals on yarn!
I’m not sure if that transformation is entirely possible, but we’ll see how things unfold…
I am a Midwesterner and an avid crafter, living in New England by way of Central Illinois, Ohio, and South Carolina…with a brief stint in Alaska. However, after living in Connecticut for 2 years on what was supposed to be a temporary basis, I’ve decided to stay for a few simple reasons:
- I found a really sweet job that is rewarding and gives me the flexibility and autonomy that I need to be able to enjoy coming to work most days of the week for the next, oh…30+ years.
- I love winter and the great outdoors.
- Despite my initial, preconceived notions, I’ve really come to enjoy living in New England (except for the traffic and taxes).
As a result, this blog is dedicated to sharing my love and passion for knitting and sewing. However, I promise you will also get a taste of my experiences living, eating, and drinking all that is New England. You will also likely get a flavor of my numerous other hobbies, including but not limited to: hiking, backpacking, biking, skiing, gardening, cooking, decorating, reading, and beer. Enjoy!
