Spinning Yarns with Crafty Storytellers June 2, 2009

yarn3Grand storytellers Jeffrey Rudell and Michaela Murphy will be telling crafty tales this Thursday, June 4, at The Lion Brand Studio in NYC @ 6:00.  This show will also feature first time storytellers who submitted their stories to the Lion Brand blog and it promises to be a fun evening.  Hope that you can all make it (the new studio is worth a visit all on its own.) Both of these folks are tremendously talented and entertaining and all around great people. Here is the link for reservations:http://www.lionbrandyarnstudio.com/lionStudioBlog/?p=1018
Please pass this invite on to anyone who likes a great yarn.

book_cover_new161102012_stdAn expert knitter once said to me, “Knitting is my friend—I can take it anywhere.” Boy, is she ever right. I’m a sewer, but when I want a portable craft, knitting is my numero uno choice. And there’s a book created for exactly that purpose: Knit 1 for the Road by Margaret Nock (who knitted her way through inaugural day making chemo caps!). Margaret also publishes a companion blog for her book. So grab your No. 8 needles and hit the road!
