July/August 2018


It is blueberry season!!  I look forward to blueberry picking each year at this time.  Because I eat them every day, I fill my freezer with berries to last the winter.

Summer is in full swing, the gardens are blooming and the days are warm and sunny.  The evenings are mild, and perfect for sitting outside, knitting, stitching, or reading a book.  What could be better?


Hikoo's Concentric Yarn


Concentric is made from four non-plied strands which creates the distinctive color change.  Beautiful color gradients in super soft baby alpaca.
