to celebrate the publication of my new book


Our colorful 1751 farmhouse will be open to the public. On view will be many of the projects that are featured in Crafting A Pattern Home along with many other things I have made over the years.

This event will be a celebration of the handmade. I hope the day will inspire you to add some pattern and color to your home.

The event is FREE. Books will be available along with some other things I have made. For more information and directions, see the EVENTBRITE PAGE HERE. Although tickets are not mandatory, it will help me get a count to know what to expect. Hope to see you here in western Massachusetts in May.

Planet Purl Tonight and Deborah The Jewel

Time is very short for me today. I have a deadline looming and I am behind. What else is new here at Leyden Glen Farm? Don't forget to call into the Planet Purl interview with me tonight at 8 p.m. Eastern Time. I would love to talk to you. You can find the information on the post below.

There's a lovely post about my friend Deborah Newton, the Author and Knitwear Designer, over on this lovely blog Knitting New England. Since I have no time to write today, I would love to point you over there. And yes, Deborah is the Jewel. She has been a friend of mine since my early days at Classic Elite. Deborah is one talented designer, illustrator, and genuinely lovely person. Pick up her book Designing Knitwear because it must be in EVERY knitter's collection!

Happy Day!

p.s. Thanks to Marly at Yarn Thing for the interview last night on her call-in radio show. It went nicely and I'm beginning to understand the call-in thing. Whew!

Thanks for the link, Kristin. I'm looking forward to continuing the conversation about knitting inspirations in the New England area, and welcome suggestions from readers of your blog and mine.
