04 Oct Go Green Weekend Recap
We had so much fun this weekend! Thanks to all who came out for the Greater Boston Yarn Crawl and our “Go Green” themed weekend. A special thanks to our Friday guests, the always interesting, always fabulous, Ann Weaver from WeaverKnits (don’t forget to check out her Color Theory Workshop and Top Down Triangle Workshop…spaces are limited, and filling up). I was so amazed by her new book–vol.I–of knit designs inspired by Moby Dick. So wonderful and I can’t wait to get my hands on copy of the book, coming soon! Also, thanks to Adrian Bromley for spinning for us on Friday evening. Her KnittinK yarns are super special big ol’balls of bright colors. We made her leave us some of her one-of-kind skeins in the shop so stay tuned for a “yarn” post on her fabulous yarns. Saturday we had Lisa from Manos del Uruguay and Jocelyn from O-Wool with a trunk show and great info about the Uruguayan women’s collective and more on the organic process around O-wool’s organic wool. Not to mention all the lovely and inspiring patterns that they brought to the shop. Sunday brought our “green” workshops where we made market bags out of plastic bags (“Plarn”) and Taylor showed us how to transform old, beloved, T-shirts into handy aprons. So green! A final, heartfelt thanks to all our visitors for the Greater Boston Yarn Crawl. We were inspired by all the many new knitters we met over the weekend. A big shout out to Black Sheep Knitting for organizing. We can’t wait to do it again next year.
