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.

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!

Fried food. That is Chicken fried steak, fried okra, fried catfish, and fried hushpuppies, y’all.


The Divide one room school house in Real County.  That is Re-AL, y’all.  Note the stretch Cadillac school bus.  And there is a black one out back in the pasture. The cattle guard keeps the livestock from getting out onto the road.
