Comet Jumps Over The Moon

This pattern was designed with our bunny Comet in mind. He is grey Rex bunny that we adopted from a pet shop. He jumps higher than any rabbit I have ever seen. My daughter said she bet he could jump over the moon. Of course it would have to be a carrot-orange moon!

This pattern is available in our Yarn Shop.

Lawn Mowers

The grass is getting tall with all of this rain. The lawn mower won't start.

Plan B ....

Shop Shots

Here are a few more shots of the yarns and other goodies I am offering this year in my yarn shop.

Almost Ready!

The dye pot has been bubbling and I, in my witch's hat ( I am thewoolwitch after all ! :):) ) have been creating some great colors for all seasons! My shop will be officially OPEN next week!

Hours are Mon- Fri 12:30-6 and most weekends. Best to call ahead if you aren't sure ... I am here most of the time ( when I am not delivering kids to baseball and girl scouts) and welcome you to visit!

This year I have found a new passion ... Dyeing and working with wool fabric! I have hand-dyed small strips for appliqueing and hooking. I also have my own patterns for sale!

And speaking of patterns I have ordered some very nice patterns from Cabin Fever and Knit Spot. I have chosen projects for we " knitters on the run", easy beginner projects, and patterns I felt would work best with our worsted and bulky weight yarns.

Green Mountain Spinnery spun my worsted weight yarns. The whites have been dyed, and now I await the browns to be finished. I also have an assortment of hand-spun hanks spun by yours truly. Sunshine Pottery has provided me with some wonderful and unique stoneware buttons, and Betty Stover of Spinnakees' Farm is preparing some wonderful roving blends from her farm. We have yarns from Grandview Farm and yarns from The Stonehouse Farm. You won't believe how much I have packed into this old pony barn! :)

Hope you will stop by. Directions are posted on my website.

Yello-Gold, Pumpkin-Orange

My fingers are yellow, gold, blue and purple ... but I don't care. I am surrounded with color!!!!!!

Winter seems so dull as it draws to an end. Even when the daffodils and the tulips bloom, I am happy to add more color to my life with help from the dye pot. This year, Green Mountain Spinnery spun our fleeces into a beautiful worsted weight yarn. This particular day was yellows and golds day.


When something beautiful enters your life, you need to give it a beautiful name. This is Socks's sweet little baby ....Marigold. She is a beautiful Olde Babydoll Southdown lamb.

Moon Pie ...again

Well I just have to share this sturdy little guy as he grows....what a doll! Can't decide wether to keep him or not. Socks finally had her baby two nights ago. A little white ewe. It was a rough delivery, but both mom and baby are thriving. I am happy to say ... lambing is over ...whew!
