Seasons of Vermont....
We've begun a new round of Seasons of Vermont Yarn boxes - this year we're organizing around a "Life in Balance" theme. They will be released as close as possible to the 4 seasonal turning points - the Vernal Equinox, the Summer Solstice, the Autumnal Equinox, and the Winter Solstice. The yarns and patterns will play on themes of light and darkness, as well as the seasonal indicators we all know and love. To enhance the idea of balance, we will continue to offer locally sourced items from Vermont-based providers that will appeal to all 5 of your senses - and have added a local beverage option along with a seasonally-inspired recipe from local chef Katie Webster, whose website Healthy Seasonal Recipes is linked here. We've just released EMERGE, the first box of the year and invite you to dive in and order yours now!
The beautiful local yarns are provided by Petersholm Farms and Bobolink Yarns (see section below). Petersholm Farm raises Shetland Sheep, a primitive breed almost extinct, known for their fine wool and eleven natural colors - and they provided the beautiful naturally colored sport weight yarn in our collection. They are located very close to us in Williston VT - about 5 miles from the store! Other products include a gorgeous project bag from one.stitch.back, hand lotion from Pure Energy Apothecary, flower seeds from High Mowing, and our signature sweet treats from Lake Champlain Chocolates and Dakin Farm.
