Web Site Update

Hello all, Thank you for all the calls and e-mails telling me about my website problems. Yes, it is down, No it is not fixed yet. I was on the phone to California for 45 minutes this morning, no results! I have to "Give them 24 to 48 hours to find the problem" How much longer to "FIX" the problem? Computers are wonderful...

Newest Group Project...

The fires in California are a horrific event unfolding before our eyes. Here we are on the East Coast helpless...You may ask...How can we be useful? Let's put our needles together and knit/crochet squares/blankets for these fellow Americans, some who have lost everything. We can wrap them in a hug and blanket.
Here is what one woman is Check out her blog and you will get the picture.
I am making squares,#8 needles with WW yarn, CO 32 sts, knit to 8", they should be 8" square. I am knitting,collecting from anyone who wants to participate and as with the Daduza Dolls, A Knitter's Garden will pick up the cost to ship them out to Sandie in California. Let's help make a difference...

Answer to the questions...

My button on the top of the page with the adirondike chair, the summer drink and our yarn garden...My very talented oldest daughter, Laura, designed that for me. I wanted to put it on my business cards, stationery, labels...everything associated with A Knitter's Garden but we couldn't shrink it down enough and keep the details. It changed the integratity of the art work as a whole. Do not ask me how but I managed to transfer it on my blog...I am so proud...

Saturday, June 30, 2007


Check it out...I figured out how to add Buttons ALL BY MYSELF...and alot of time wasted trying!!!

...Dog Days of Summer

Here is the Questionaire for the "Dog Days Of Summer" Swap...Round 2...

1. Do you knit, or crochet, or do both? How long have you been knitting\crocheting?
I do both, I love to knit but I like to crochet. I learned to knit first, maybe around 8 or 10. Crocheting came next...I had great shawls, rugs and blankets for my Barbies!
2. Have you knit dishcloths or dishtowels before?
Yes, I had made many facecloths, dishcloths and potholders (two cloths sewn tog), they are great!
3. What are your favorite cotton yarns? Is there a cotton or linen you’ve been dying to try but have not?
My favorite is TLC Cotton Plus, Halcyon's Casco Bay and Lambs Pride Cotton Fleece.
There are many out there I haven't tried and would love to.
4. Are there any cotton yarns you don’t enjoy knitting with?
Yes, I do not like to knit with Sugar and Cream, it is very stiff. But I must say, it is great for an exfoliant in the shower...Thank you Maria!
5. What type of needle do you prefer using? (Metal/Wood/Plastic)
It truly depends on what yarn you are using. I prefer Bamboo first but I love Brysun, they are a nylon. Then of course, Addi Turbos
6. What other projects do you enjoy knitting or crocheting?
I love making baby clothes and doll clothes. They are small take-along items. Plus you use small amounts of yarn so you can go for the more expensive for trimmings etc. I have also started to make "SOAP CADDIES" for handmade soap I sell in my shop, what better addition but a caddy to put the soap in!! Swapper Maria from my first swap made one for me...I love it! Great idea, I stole it!
7. Do you have other hobbies or enjoy other kinds of crafting?
I love to read, I borrow "Books on Tape" from my library. Read and knit...perfection! I also enjoy container gardening. We have always had a small vegatable garden but lately, my knees do not want to bend and my back hurts when weeding, so Container Gardening is the answer. I love house plants and flowers, I was a floral designer before I opened my yarn shop.
8. What kind of treats do you like? Chocolate? Candies? Nuts?
Popcorn, pretzels, m&m's, cashews and almonds...sweet and salty together! Yum...
9. What colors are your kitchen and bath decorated in, if any?
Kitchen, Gray and Red...Bath...Wisteria and Navy
10. What are your favorite colors and what colors do you dislike?
My favorite is greens and blues...least fav black
11. Do you drink coffee? Tea? Other beverages? I love my COFFEE, Gevalia coffee club is wonderful!
12. Do you have any kids (human or pet variety!)?
We have a ton...2 dogs, 2 parakeets, 2 sheep, 11 chickens, 2 angora bunnies, 2 daughters and 1 husband...quite the crew!
13. Do you have any allergies?
Penicillin...please do not send any!!
Please share 3 tidbits about yourself that you think your pal and other swappers might find odd or interesting.
We own a 217 year old farmhouse in southern NH, 18 months ago I opened a yarn shop in the front parlor. It has been great fun, a dream come true.
I told you all about my animals. My husband wants more sheep. We went to the local MSPCA and found 2 up for adoption...maybe?
I swore I would not do this blogging and swapping stuff...This is my second and I'm loving it!!!

Well, I guess that should do it for now...I am going to try to figure out how to put "buttons" on my blog...can't seem to do it...Tomorrow is another day...J

**Well, most of the Swappers have their packages in the mail and the rest are waiting patiencely for their spoiling. My Swappee was "a little" pleased with her package, go to and check out Shannon's blog. I looked at a few other blogs, everyone has been so generous with their "Spoiling" What fun! Everyone should try a swap at least once!
**This Dish Cloth Group is doing it all over again. Interested? Rush on over to sign on...same address as above, just click on join...all the rules are very well explained...I am going to sign up for this one again!!! Sign up starts June 20th, don't wait to long to decide!!! You won't be sorry!

Besides they are fun to make 'cause there are so many cool patterns. Have you ever searched for patterns? There are millions out there, one prettier than the next! Try it, you'll understand why I did it. Plus, they are GREAT summer projects...lots of great cottons and patterns out there...Send me an e-mail, I am going to start selling on-line.

My Pal...

Hello Pal,
Thank you for your note and I truly look forward to all this fun! What do you think of the Duduza Doll? Thanks for attempting one, such easy and fast knitting. Did you go on the site and watch the video, it is inspiring. We have about 12 waiting for their stuffing! Again, Thanks...have a wonderful day...Joanne

A Contest I get to participate in...

I have joined a Dish Cloth Swap and part of the fun are these little contests.

So here are the questions and answers to mine...
1. What is one baked item you love to bake or buy and why.
I love to make "Swedish Apple Pie" It is the easiest recipe, no crust, just a batter consisting of 4 ingredients, your sliced apples and a pie plate!

2. What is one item you love to knit and why.
I love making doll or baby clothes. They are a small lap project, work up fast and are so adorable. And you can fool around with small amounts of funky yarns to change things around. Try it you'll see what I mean!

3. Favorite outdoor activity and why.
We have a trailer at a seasonal campground. We are only weekend campers, have been there 12 years and have made so many awesome friends that we only see at camp. So we get together, watch the guys play horseshoes, go for walks in the woods or by the lake and just enjoy being outside most of the day and night. Last year I taught 5- 13 yr olds to knit! Can't wait to see how they have done over the winter.

4. Favorite and why to relax.
Either at home on the porch in my favorite rocking chair knitting and watching the cars drive by. Or at camp by a roaring fire, just staring into it, it is soooooo relaxing!

I just realized, I am looking forward to going up there this weekend...Catch ya later

DUDUZA (comfort) DOLLS

As many of you know by my e-mails, last week I was watching Fox TV and they interviewed a woman who is very involved with CHABHA..Children Affected By HIVAIDS...There are thousands of parentless children in Rwanda and other African countries. These children have no change of clothes, no shoes, no toys. The group wanted to make a difference, they knitted dolls, counted 219, thought it was plenty, brought them over and were so overwhelmed by the response of the children. They loved, hugged and cried for these dolls but there was not enough to go around. The group returned to the states and is requesting...If you can knit, Please, follow these simple instructions and create this much needed "Lovey" in American, "Duduza" in African.
I have much donated yarns, you do not need a large amount but lots of different colors and textures to make them cheerful and fun. Here are two sites where you can see the dolls, retrieve the pattern and read for yourself the and also
When we have collected a good sized box full, A Knitter's Garden will pay to ship the box to Vermont. I will also have a collection jar for monetary donations to send along as well. Please help me make a difference....J

Up Coming Sale

Just a heads up...I am planning another "One Day Sale" on Saturday, May 19th from 10am to4pm. 30% off on Select Yarns. 20% off on hardbound books. Check back...more to come...

Bunny 101

On Sunday, Heather, Martha and I took "Caring for Bunnies" class with Nancy Bender of The Spinning Bunny, at the Fiber Studio. It was awesome! We were three of eleven ladies, twelve counting the Bunny! Learned lots of very useful info ranging from feeding, grooming, housing and mating to actually shearing, blending the raw fiber and spinning. What fun!! I can't wait to shear my Jacob sheep and blend her fiber with either Gracie or Bonnie. The fiber, thus yarn, will be phenomenal!
Martha and her, human girls, Sophie and Bella, visited today. They colored at the dining room table while Martha and I groomed the bunnies. Their first official "Shearing". I will ask my daughter to take have to see them...SO small with no fur! Bob was shocked when he saw HIS girls! Martha promised, the fur grows back so quickly and it's actually a relief for the bunnies to be shorn. I put an extra fleece blanket in their hutch, incase they are chilly tonight! It's the Mama in me.
Saturday, if all goes well this time, the sheep are being shorn...check back for that saga!
