Beautiful Flowers and More

Had a great group of nine knitters for a fun Color and Flower Class here at the farm. 


Here's what they made! Gorgeous!


The kitties charmed them.


Tammy, one of the students, wrote about the class here on her blog "Life and Yarn or Yarn and Life." I'm working on the September 15th Fair Isle and Steeking One Day Class. Sign on up for my newsletter (top of right sidebar) if you want to learn more about the project we are making once I have it sorted out. A fun day of knitting and chatting with kindred spirits here at our farm.

Our friends Missy and Casey of Old Friends Farm in Amherst and crew grow these beautiful lisianthus. They resemble roses but also come in this gorgeous blue-purple shade. What a great cut flower. They continue to grow and bloom in the vase - each stalk has several blooms that keep on going. These are still going and they are close to two weeks old. 

How did I miss this "Creativity Series" over on WhipUp? Probably too busy working on a project and washing the floors. Looks like I should take it slow and read a post a day. Especially like the interesting post by Ann Shayne about her foray into the world of self-publishing.

There is a Color By Kristin Booklet and Yarn Giveaway over on Craft Gossip today. Sign on up!

Nice article on the friendship between the late Marion Cunningham and Alice Waters via David Lebovitz.
