Friday February 2, 2018  Six more week of winter!  At least for Pennsylvania according to Punxsutawney Phil.  LOL   Woodland Utah must not be on his radar, or perhaps the weather will change and we can always hope for that.  One of our students for our knitting class tomorrow had to leave town…

Saturday January 13, 2018  Another 40 degree day in the "winter that wasn't".  It's so strange that we haven't even had one night below zero.  We often see snow here til April, so there's time to change the landscape yet, so we'll keep hoping.   Ed will be opening Yaya's Yarn Barn…

Thursday January 4, 2018  We got some gorgeous purple yarn dyed yesterday and I love the way it turned out. I tried a gradient method to give the depth of shading and it turned out exactly as I wanted. It's still drying and needs to be reskeined but I'll have…
