  • The Future of The Yarn Office

    I know it’s been a while; I think of writing (and things to write about) and then I put it off. But today I made an important decision: I’m letting all my etsy listings expire and am closing down The Yarn Office on etsy (my studio space at home will forever be The Yarn Office).…

  • The Week July 17-July 23

    Last week: Begin knitting the commissioned shawl. One of the yarns has already arrived and I can get started on the first part of it before the second skein arrives. Done. The second skein arrived last Monday, so there was no lag time or head start at all. I’m roughly halfway through it, maybe a…

  • The Week July 10-July 16

  • Spring Cleaning

    Yesterday I tidied up part of The Yarn Office, my work/studio space (and the name of my etsy shop). I used to occupy the room in our house known as the office but outgrew that several years ago and took over our formal living room. One of my sons called it “The Yarn Office,” which…

  • The Yarn Office, The Post Office, and Fleece Washing

    Over the last week or so, I’ve been super-busy. My knitting friends have been encouraging me for a long time (trust me: for at least a year) to start a shop, if not a brick-and-mortar yarn shop, then a shop on etsy, or really, someplace online. A brick-and-mortar yarn shop seems like a pretty high…
