Y’all been hearing rumors about some new gal in town, Lurlene. And you are wondering who is this gal?

Lurlene is a 1963 Airstream trailer. She has seen better days, as she was abandoned in an Adirondack field for years. Poor baby.  Even Chucho was sad for her.  So we took her home and are loving her up.

Here she is after a deluxe spa exfoliation treatment.

Lurlene is getting a makeover: facelift, new guts, the works.

When she comes out of surgery, she will be a traveling yarn shop, visiting underserved populations across the northeast.
YARNstream. Coming to a roadside near you.  Stay tuned.

Beverly Hooligans Captured on Camera!

June 28th, 2014 by

This just in:

Five notorious Beverly hooligans, in the glare of mid-day sun, crossed the Kernwood bridge into Salem.  They brazenly carried a ladder.   They were trailed by an investigator and a bomb sniffing dog.  They proceeded to BOMB Felt St with Kool-aid dyed felt squares.  Then they escaped by leaping off a high bridge and disappearing into the Danvers River.

If you see these hooligans, do not approach. They are armed with knitting needles. Call 978-927-2108.

Red Birds are singing…

The Red Birds are singing, it must be Spring!

I am not lost… take me I’m yours!

January 23rd, 2014 by

Y’all, this Polar Vortex is killing me. And I am safe and warm in front of the fire.

I read about this initiative in Ontario, where some kind soul is leaving scarves draped artfully about the city, for anyone who is cold, tagged with a small note saying this….

And I thought, ouch, scarves take a long time to knit! And hats more fun.

So, EVERY THURSDAY MORNING anyone who wants to have some tea and company and free yarn for knitting hats for those in need, come on down to the shop and cozy up on the couch and we will knit hats. Then we can label them and yarn bomb the world with them. Or at least Beverly.  Come with your ideas and creative juices!

I am not sure where we will yarn bomb with our hats, but yarn bomb we will!

Please come!

Nekkid Chucho

April 8th, 2013 by

Poor Chucho. He had too much fun in Texas with his cousins, and he had to get shaved down to his nekkid pink skin. So i made him a pretty little mat to snuggle up on.  But still he was trembling with shame and the chilly New England Springtime.

The after-school Yarns in the Farms Kids Kamp came to the rescue. They measured his neck, picked out 3 skeins of Spud and Chloe Outer, a soft velvety bulky washable yarn with 50% wool and 50% cotton.  They figured out gauge, and we made it  up as we went along.  No fear!  Now Chucho is all gussied up. And warm!
