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.

Kitties Flying the Nest and Fall Yarn News

Two of our sweet little kitties - Chloe and Spike - have moved on. We are missing them big time as are their littermates and their mama. I know they are in a great new home but it is always an adjustment for all of us. I miss the patter of the little 8 little feet.

Check out Susan B. Anderson's new Monkey Socks made out of my Regia Garden Effects in the color Holiday here on her blog. Susan is such an amazingly prolific knitter and designer. I can't wait for her next book.

Here's the back-cover of the fall Interweave Knits - featuring an ad for Color By Kristin. (Thanks Elaine for the heads-up!) The photo shoot for the two new books was here at the farm in April. That's Ness and Kate at the lower left of the photo. They loved all the excitement created by the photo shoot crew. The books and yarn should be arriving at your local yarn store soon. Look for it!

Lisa Allen Lambert, a writer and knitter, has a nice post about color and flowers in her garden and a review of three of her favorite books about gardening. I was reading away and then found a mention of my new Color by Kristin and a Quarters Cap she has made. Thanks Lisa!
