It’s a fog-soup morning here in my crumb of Maryland. I’ve been so busy dyeing and dyeing these past 2 weeks.
I am getting ready for a fiber festival on the Easter Shore of Maryland.

“We’ll collect the moments one by one
I guess that’s how the future’s done.”
That’s just one of my favorite songs.
I named one of my yarns Mushaboom this go round, in it’s honor.
I just finished a big update at the gnomegarden etsy shop. Here’s the scoop:
Here is an update that was a long time coming ! go to the ETSY! Please share it with your fiber loving friends and family!
Look for more frequent updates this Spring with lots of spinning fiber, and luscious yarn.
Many of the yarns in this update look fabulous in combination, thus alleviating the ever present question “well, what would I do with one skein??” If you need more ideas though, there is a fab website of low yardage genius at simple patterns to knit with 1-285 yards of yarn and on Ravelry for “free knit patterns– 285 yards or less”
Please visit me this Spring and let me know how you are!
Wool flapping on the line again….
This will be the post Thanksgiving feast!

This sassy little banner says it all. Visit the blog/countdown and catch the excitement as a new fiber artist is featured each day. Today is the knitting gnome’s turn in fact! There are amazing contests and f-u-n.
As a bonus– the blog is there all the time and a great new “finger on the pulse” of the fiber-full days at Cloverhill. Give that banner a click!
I am thinking about what I’ll be giving away here in fact as the awesome event nears. Stay tuned….
Tomorrow– Gnomes made for swapping and a roving hedgehog!
