YARN LOVER AT LARGE

Knit Local Getaway & Washington County Farm and Fiber Tour

LINK to more information about the Hudson Valley Textile Project.

A very special purchase: 2 yards of crepe weave fabric from Lilly Marsh (center).
Thank you Selma for getting our group to take this photo — a first for the getaway.
Romney mother and lamb at the beautiful Wedding Hill Farm, a new location on the tour this year.
I got to hold a lamb! This is Halo, a lamb at Foster Sheep Farm.
This massive spinner, imported from a mill in Portugal, will be able to spin thread-fine fiber to be used in textile production.
Mary Jeanne Packer of Battenkill Fiber Mill and I are wearing sweaters knit from the same yarn! The mill shop has been relocated since the arrival of the new spinner.
I got to drive around the county with these beautiful women. Marybeth, Jessie and Jennie were awesome dining and shopping companions. The weather was perfect for knitwear!
Retreat craft: these adorable chicken pin cushions are so much fun to make. I’ll be giving one away in the #mariewallinkal
