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.

The kindness of butterflies

Butterflies drinking the tears of a sad turtle. It is true.  Springtime is the time of small kindnesses.

The quiet beauty of sand

This is sand, under a 250x microscope.

Look at the tiny shells. I am strangely comforted to see these tiny creatures living their full lives, in such a parallel universe to mine.

Look at me!

Okay, look at the guy if you must. Nice. Right?


What is Tink praying for?  Just a quick wink would be appreciated.


Prayer obviously not specific enough.

The best guy

January 12th, 2011 by

This is Bob.

So, Bob comes into the Yarns in the Farms looking for a Christmas stocking for his adoring wife. Alas, he finds that there are no ready-made stockings to be had. He must make it himself. Alas again, he cannot knit.

BUT, we have an old felted woolen poncho from someone’s stint as a foreign exchange student in some South American country in 1969. AND some of sister Lou’s Texas bird feathers. Would he like to use those as inspiration?

Yes-sir-ee-Bob! He sits at the shop table, takes the old poncho, scissors, needle-felting tools, fleece, and feathers, and viola!

By the way, these are sister Lou’s birds…

And THIS is Bob’s magnus opus! Next year he will be teaching the class, don’t you think?
