About Me:
I found great appreciation of wool and its natural properties, while raising sheep as a child. I am thrilled to have found a company that appreciates the natural fibers and provides yarns that are not only practical, but beautiful!

Mittens and Gloves the lasting Gifts to Give

Posted on September 22, 2009 at 8:18am 4 Comments

Line by Line Mittens and Gloves Kits

The best attribute of this kit is the flexibility it contains. Flexibility is important- it allows you to knit these mittens and gloves up for just about any school teacher or coach your child has this year. You can make the size and design fit the personality of each individual teacher/instructor, whether it is your son’s science teacher who likes to hike through the woods searching for the creatures under the rocks, or the band instructor who… Continue

Knit In Public Day

Posted on June 13, 2009 at 10:30am 2 Comments

Honestly the only time I have to knit is out in public. My life is swirling with high school concerts, drivers ed , equestrian events, remodeling an old home besides working full time. So the chance to stop for a few minutes and knit a row or two is a real treat and great therapy. I am working on a little sweater for my youngest daughter. She is excited and I should have it done sometime this summer in time… Continue

For those of you who do not know who Sheldon is, check out the knit along. Sheldon, the Turtle is ready for adventure and a little bit of play. As a matter of fact he has traveled to the Orient and the Southern American Continent just in the last month.

Good day,
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very important to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site. Could you please get back to me on my private email:( for the full details?
Have a nice day and God bless you,

I have a product line question. The new catalog doesn't feature any lace weight yarn. Is it going away? Please say no!

(PS, I added you as a friend!).

Hi Deidre,
So glad to find you again. It's been too long since we worked together in Washougal! I'm thrilled to death for you that you've found a great company to be with. Vivian @PWM

You are welcome! I'm glad you liked the socks. I'm afraid I haven't done a thing on my blog. There are dozens of projects that haven't made it on there. I'm so slow at posting pics and such. And the night I spent so many hours on it only to have my entire post dissapear has really dissuaded me from trying since. I hope to work up the courage to try again soon, though.

Humbolt is too adorable. Isn't it great to have a job that deals with fibers? You know one day my hobby started to work for me. It was great. Hope to see more wonderful things.
