Long Island Fleece And Fiber Fair

This was our third year at this fair.  I picked up some sock ,yarn from Loolimom Fiber Arts and also from Groovy Hues Fibers. As always, Tabbethia of Long Island Livestock was there sharing her knowledge and love of llamas. It’s always a fun time. If you can make it next year, please do. Do a little wine tasting while you’re here and enjoy the beautiful North Fork of Long Island.

2nd Annual Long Island Yarn Crawl

It was rainy and windy. The worse kind of weather for an outing, however, IT’S A YARN CRAWL!!! We had a blast. We visited shops I never would have gone to and I got to touch yarn I’ve only seen online. I was glad to have contributed to some really nice yarn stores . The folks at The Knitting Store in Oceanside were so friendly and welcoming. They had great specials for the crawl.  A hot pastrami on rye and a bowl of matzoh ball soup was the icing on the cake. If there is a yarn crawl in your local area , go! You won’t regret it.image

The Pastrami King in Freeport was an excellent choice for lunch. Thank you to all my beautiful friends. I am looking forward to many more outings this year.
