At Vogue Knitting Live 2013, I had the pleasure of meeting Laura Watson from Full Moon Farm.  Laura’s yarns were extremely colorful – and so was she! – so I was immediately drawn over to her booth.  It was wonderful to learn that she’s a New York State local (about 90 minutes north of New […]

Though it was […]

Years ago, I was in a job I didn’t love which required me to travel to Phoenix for a conference.  After a long, dreary day under artificial, hotel conference room lighting, I stepped outside just in time to see a stunning sunset. The beautiful browns, yellows, and oranges really lifted my spirit.  The colors were […]

Today was the last day of Vogue Knitting Live, and I felt a bit under the weather (perhaps that cold shower yesterday was to blame).  I did actually take my obligatory pre-event picture, but I looked so grumpy that I decided not to post it.  I was wearing my All Weather Cowl (you know, the one […]

My second day at Vogue Knitting Live started off with no hot water at home (and who doesn’t love showering in cold water when it’s sleeting outside?).  In the rush to get out the door, I forgot to take the ceremonial pre-show picture of me in my handmade goodies.  (I was wearing my 2013 Temperature […]

Ice Age

Temperatures are dropping in New York City.  Yesterday, it was so cold I could barely stand being outside for even a few minutes – which I did anyway, just to take pictures for this blog post (and to buy cat litter). I bundled up with my current favorite cold weather scarf, my sample for the […]
