Sheep and Wool Festival Season Begins

Groomed goats, sheep herding, hand-dyed yarns, lobster rolls…the trip to Deerfield for the New Hampshire Sheep and Wool Festival is worth the 2-hour road trip on the weekend of May 12th and 13th.   I wander somewhat aimlessly, appreciating the garments everyone wears to exhibit their skills, admiring the beautiful goats and sheep, delighting in the fibers, watching with respect the relationship between people and their animals in the competitions and the shearing and herding demonstrations.  If you have never been, treat yourself and your family to an outing.  The demonstrations and classes are free–you may be like me and want to learn how to darn your socks!  Check out the schedule

We’ll be carpooling from the shop at 8:30 on Sunday if you’d like to join us!

Make Gnome Ornaments!

Saturday, December 2nd, is Christmas in Bethlehem, an annual kick-off for the holiday season.  This year at Love.Yarn.Shop. we’ll be making Ann G.’s simple gnome ornaments from 1-2, so grab some friends and come on down!  We’ll have cider and cookies for a little mid-afternoon refreshment.  The festivities begin at 10:00 with the Methodist Church Bazaar and Santa Claus at the Heritage Center.  Find out about all the events at Christmas in Bethlehem. This year in Bethlehem, we are offering for the first time special discounts at local shops, so make sure to pick up your card at local businesses and get it stamped.  The entry deadline is Wednesday, December 20th, and with 6 stamps from participating shops and restaurants, you could win a $100 shopping spree.


Round Mountain Fibers at LYS

While awaiting my order from Round Mountain Fibers, I’ll be featuring them at the Yarn Tasting on February 12th.  Hand dyed in Brattleboro, Vermont, these superwash merino yarns are scrumptious.  You’ll particularly enjoy the fingering weight colorway, Kestrel.  Join us from 5-7 for nibbles and sips and a great feeling yarn.
