Bits and bobs

Thanks so much for your wonderful reception of The Charles Collection! Your lovely comments and compliments mean so much to us all. Now I can’t wait to see the projects people make with it!


I’m sure that by now you’ve heard of the dreaded Snowtober that rocked the East Coast this weekend. Our home was thankfully spared incident, but things were messy enough that we decided to postpone my Sunday class at Knit Wit in Portland, ME. We’ve rescheduled for Sunday, 20 November, and there are now a couple of spots open if you’d like to join us! After hearing from my dad about the situation in Maine, I’m glad we postponed, though it was a tough call to make before a single flake of snow had flown.

The freezing temperatures sent my kids scurrying for their hand knits. And guess what fits now!

He wore it out all day on Sunday and proclaimed it the “best ever”. And then requested to go to Peru to visit the alpacas. I told him we’d get right on that.


Finally, I present to you the best. mail. day. ever.

A new pair of shoes, a sweater’s worth of the aptly-named ‘Breathless’, and a t-shirt memento of my Rhinebeck weekend. Nothing better.

Although a fruit bat and his brother Mario come within spitting distance.

Happy Halloween!
