All about Woollinn!

[Translate] Episode 4 of the show is now up! You can see it at this link – Episode 4! Fair warning – it’s a looooong one, but I think it’s worth it! Why? Well, it’s dedicated entirely to Woollinn 2019. If you didn’t make it you may feel like you had been there and if you did it will bring back some memories from just over a month ago! There’s a more comprehensive breakdown of it under The Show tab on this site, as I’ve finally gotten around to getting that page up and running. I’ll be putting up […]

It’s Time!!

[Translate] Well, by the time you read this, it will be! What time? 7:00 PM BST (British Summer Time). Time to register for classes at Perth Festival of Yarn 2019 and get your tickets! And by Perth, I mean Perth, Scotland, not Australia (maybe somebody should put together one there). I’m also pleased to say that I’ll be teaching two classes there as well, on guess what? CABLES!! There will be a beginner cables class on Sunday morning, then an advanced class that same afternoon. I promise I won’t have you twisted in knots though! I’ll also be joined […]


[Translate] #youshouldhavebeenthere If you didn’t make it to Woollinn this year, the above hashtag sums it up in one (okay, technically 5) word! I’m interrupting my regular postings to bring you this quick review of an absolutely stupendous event, especially for a first year! I would have to say the theme of the event this year was #colour!! It was everywhere, vibrant, and saturated. Here is a link to a walk through I did on Facebook. Unfortunately, because of the size of it, it didn’t upload in HD. 🙁 Woollinn Walkthrough There was an great list of instructors teaching […]

Cables of color …

[Translate] I have been a little quiet these past few months, so it’s time to start talking again, so to speak. It has been very busy and it always surprises me when I look up and realize that another day has gone by, which turns into another week, then month, and before you know it, we’re all celebrating Christmas and the New Year! Well, I have a few posts to get in before then, so I’ll start by continuing where I left off and give a little preview at the same time … Color can be a wonderful thing […]

A Common Thread Road Trip …

[Translate] Well, I have finally set a date for the first Common Thread outing. As it turns out, it will also be a road trip. For those of you not located close enough geographically to participate with our group, I invite you to try and organize one of your own and see what you can do. Even a dishcloth will be fine. If you are close enough geographically to participate with our group though, book Saturday, January 29th on your calendar. On that day we will be traveling to Victoria, BC to visit three yarn shops. I have worked […]
