Yarn along 7
Joining in with Ginny today, even though have nothing on the needles. However, Iam thrilled to report that a new yarn shop has opened in Stornoway - A Good Yarn. One of the members of the Knit and Natter group decided to do something about our desperate need here on the Island, and she opened a shop. Lots of lovely things - yarns, notions, fabric, quilting stuff, spinning wheels - it is now a firm destination on my itinerary when I make my weekly trips into town. Now - I must really knit something....
I am still reading this book, having finally prised it away from my husband. I am savouring it slowly, a chapter at a time. I love it - this man just talks so much sense, about the way our food is produced and about those who are responsible for producing it. I could go on and on for hours, quoting chunks of Mr Salatin's wisdom, but I won't - we are heading out to our local agricultural show, my husband is jingling truck keys around, and my son is already sitting in the back. Suffice to say it is already playing a big part in our farm management strategy.
Visit Ginny at Small Things and see some real knitting.
