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!

Who’s that girl? What’s that fur? Willy Wonka? What?

I am feeling very grumpy about it.  Grab it for me if you find it.

The Story of Stori

July 27th, 2012 by

This is Stori, Yarns in the Farms’ newest shop guru.  She inspires, right?

I first encountered Stori a few years ago, when she did not show up for a class at the shop.  I called her contact number. She answered, and when I told her that she was missing the class, she smugly told me that she was in the ICU after having open heart surgery.  I replied that that was a poor excuse and she could not expect a refund.  She showed up at the shop 2 weeks later with her IV pole.  What pluck.

She is wearing the Eden Scarf.

One day later… Maybe she needs more training?
