  • Dreaming of Shetland

    Posted on July 31, 2013 by annetarsia in Blog.

                  Dreaming of Shetland is a very special e-book that Donna Druchunas thought up as a dream-funder for Deborah Robson to do research into Shetland sheep and Shetland wool.  I happened to be present when Donna had her epiphany, so I got involved, too.  Then, of course I volunteered […]

    I’m finishing up my book, in the middle of training for the Portland marathon and knitting Chelsea’s shawl, and preparing for a new computer and software.  Here is the weekend wrap-up! New computer is in the house!  Moving from .5 gig to 2 gigs, which should solve the slow-down problem.  I’m not hooking it up […]

    Knitters are very generous people, and we love to support good causes.  This particular one resonates strongly with me because feeling safe when running is something that I take very seriously, as well as crimes against women.  I have been knitting with Dream in Color yarn lately, as they have generously supported the Book with […]

  • An Entertaining Yarn

    Posted on July 6, 2013 by annetarsia in Blog.

    I reached the end of The Broken Circle today.  It is Book One of the Potluck Yarn Trilogy by Cheryl Potter.  I’ve been reading it for awhile now, which is unlike me in two ways.  Normally, I wait until all of the books in a series are at hand, and read them all at once.  […]
