Let's start today with a beautiful photo of our sheep on the hill in the midst of autumn foliage.....
For the second season, I've teamed up with the fine folks at Regia for my Garden Effects Sock Yarn. Seriously - how exciting is this for me.... to have my colors all over the world. Whoa! Pinch me!
You all know how I wax poetically about the influence my garden and its plants and blooms have on my work. Sometimes I just think I can't think of anything else to say. But a few weeks ago, when I was photographing the new Garden Effects Sock Yarn colors, I was astounded by the truth. Here - in living color - you can see the summer flowers from my garden next to the new sock yarn colors. Wow! It really is true.
These are the new shades I designed. They add to the already established Garden Effects colors you can find on the Regia webpage here.
Check them out at your local yarn store. You'll need 2 balls for a pair of adult socks. Can't find them at your LYS? They are available on-line here.
It's Friday and I'm celebrating the launch of the new colors. Here's what I have for FOUR lucky winners......... 2 skeins of one of the new shades of Garden Effects (my choice of colors) - enough for a pair of socks for you or a lucky friend.
Here's how to enter.....

BOOK PARTY - MAY 5-6
to celebrate the publication of my new book
CRAFTING A PATTERNED HOME.
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.
