Shop #7 on my Yarn Discovery Tour reminds me of a phrase I love – “small but mighty”.

I always enjoy […] Continue Reading…

YDT Shop #6 – Crochet Innovations

The Artful Yarn in Chagrin Falls was shop #5 on my Yarn Discovery Tour. It’s the closest store to where I live, and feels like “home”. Part of my affection for the store is that when I had my trunk show and taught a class the owner and staff made me feel […] Continue Reading…

YDT Shop #4 – River Colors Studio

Stop #4 on the Yarn Discovery Tour took me to Cleveland’s west side. River Colors Studio is an amazing place. It’s enormous, with an astounding range of yarns. This picture doesn’t begin to convey how big the store is; there’s a whole additional room in the front.

Don’t you love the name of this store? Fiber Addiction, as well as being an accurate description of the knitting obsession, is a nice new store in Chardon, Ohio.

YDT Shop #2 – The Flaming Ice Cube

 My stop #2 on the Yarn Discovery Tour was in the Boardman/Canfield area near Youngstown. When I first looked up The Flaming Ice Cube on the internet, I thought, “Huh? I thought this was supposed to be a yarn shop, but here’s information about cafés. What gives?”
Well, was I ever in […] Continue Reading…

YDT Shop #1 – Knit Wits

My first stop on the Yarn Discovery Tour was Knit Wits in Salem, Ohio. When I stopped in there was a table surrounded by friends knitting together and sharing lunch. I loved the camaraderie, and was made to feel welcome.

Over time I’ve been releasing individual patterns from my book Reversible Scarves: Curing the Wrong Side Blues. I’ve re-written the “Aran” design to use Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock yarn.
