I know thats kind of cliche right? But Im so happy its fall. We had an amazing experience this month. Rhinebeck,NY. is where we went to see and enjoy their sheep and wool festival. Let me tell you, it was outstanding! Postcard perfect weather, scenery, and people. I was truly in awe of the beautiful animals that bring us the amazing yarn that we knit and crochet,weave with. These folks who raise these sweet beasts are as American as you can get. That impressed me too. We were all just enjoying our beautiful America,crowds of thousands coming together to celebrate the basics of our life. There were no agendas there, just warm "hellos","I love that shawl you're wearing," "where are your from?," It was a breath of fresh country air! The communal effort that was made to remind us of how great and blessed our nation is, and that WE made it that way, not the buffoons who say they represent us. Hardworking farmers,craftsmen,inventors.. the people that keep us up and running. God fearing men who weren't afraid to show their faith, and kindness to others. Anyway, I hope you get where Im coming from. I am extremely proud to be an American, and am also proud of the business I am in. We try hard to buy American products, and what I saw this weekend was the reason why.
Much love to you all, you enrich and infuse my life with such joy. Thank you... Penny
I am just a simple knitter who is living the dream of running a yarn store, where beautiful yarn is turned into wonderful products and friendships are knit together just as wonderfully! I hope to just share my joy of fiber arts and the joy of sharing with you, as well. Enjoy!
