|Who’s Your Farmer?|
Last week, Becky Herrick, the knitwear designer who is working with us to design patterns using our yarn, came out to the farm for a photo shoot with the lambs. She wore the sweater she designed and knit using our gray Romney yarn! The most cooperative lamb was “Gaia”. She spent some time hanging out with Becky so we could take some photos.

After our photo session ended, Becky and I began brainstorming. I just love Becky! I can tell that if we put our ideas together, we could possible get into trouble! Her new sweater pattern is absolutely awesome! As with all of her designs, it is unique and offers lovely features. I told her that I would love for her to come to the farm and offer a tutorial workshop on knitting our sweater! She was very open to the idea. We decided that first, this summer or early fall, we would offer a “Knitting Retreat” with her for a weekend at the farm. Then, perhaps this winter, we will offer a Knitting Workshop Weekend where Becky will actually teach the different techniques she used in knitting our sweater. The first Knitting Retreat would include accommodations, meals, and time to knit with Becky and ask her questions. I can not tell you the number of times I have wished I had an expert knitter sitting next to me while I was working on a project! So stayed tuned, as we have two exciting things happening: a new pattern coming available and a Knitting Retreat in the works!
