Restocking Country Cotton Yarn

339000 country life country living free knitting patterns knitted washrags knitting women yarn

Over the next two or three weeks I will be restocking my shelves with my super soft worsted weight Country Cotton Yarn. I will be selling Country Cotton yarn in 120-yard project balls ($3.00) on my website and in my Etsy store, but I don't currently plan to stock the 680-yard cones. However, I will sell the 680-yard cones ($10.00) by special order only.

Some time ago I came across these gorgeous Espresso colored gift boxes that are 6" x 6" x 4" and I knew that all of the goodies I put into a Biscuit Blanket kit would fit perfectly inside of one.

We live on a farm, but as I have said before ... we are not farmers. We have (or had) corn out in our fields, but we didn't put it there. We dream of a vineyard and fruit orchard on our acres one day, but there will be much to learn in order to get there. When I lived in the high desert north of Los Angeles for a couple of years with my children, we tried planting some raised gardens. We enriched the soil, and put up wooden planks to build up areas to grow our vegetables and watermelons...

Weathering the nor'easter

Many of my readers live in in the Northeast, so I suppose many of us are huddled in our homes or offices today, weathering the big nor'easter that came up over the weekend. I love that word: nor'easter. Couldn't ever have used it in relation to my life until now. It has such a dramatic, romantic sound to it. Makes me feel as if I should be out by the sea waiting for a ship to come home carrying my love. I walk along an old stone wall by the sea. My long, dark cape blows and whips behind me,...
