Although Sievers will have to formally celebrate the first Local Yarn Store Day a month later on May 21st when we open our doors daily, we did want to share photos of our yarns as we are beginning to arrange everything that has come in, including the lovely work sent by many Sievers students and teachers. We hope you will be inspired this year, not only by yarn and knitting, but with any fiber art you love best. “Stairway to (Blue Sky) Heaven” “Norwegian Wood” (I mean Wool) “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” “Send in the (Knit Circus) Clowns” “Kashmir” Merino Silk DK Rowan Felted “Tweed-le Dee” “Mad (Tosh) World” “Sock It To Me Baby” Brown […]
If summer seems far away and you need a quick video visit to the Island, this “teaser” shows some of the scenes from the recent “Discover Wisconsin” Washington Island edition. http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001Ue1YgILjuZOcLA3bZI0tJOqLkIqdPEVEPZagPC1bAeRVhWuV0me8YSHAu80RmexJ3W_dTL9X1oy_OxaDNM-xIXQW04-bMO2024dHUfM0TJ2G-azexUD4llA7e6oGEoBcc-4Ly9cYZkbPlW7hBc6mJ3CZ4ZP7CHHwm5xlZhat2ZuH2gz2dw9yIQ==&c=1WySR_2NBxTtcguXpPkCu6uDYJQqDVmI72JNHQqMpQNBvo-TvkVxCw==&ch=00yqn_Fw9Gm0kOUm90gWXZQnS08seLl7QAJxynrDg1LthjvOkjRwsg==
My intent here was to provide a short-term time lapse view of the Walter Studio in the midst of a spring thaw. What we have today though, is Spring going in the wrong direction. Perhaps checking the weather forecast a little closer may have convinced me to postpone this posting until later, but here we are… There have been a few signs of Spring on the Island and at Sievers. We welcome back the Sandhill cranes… Yarns, books and other items for the shop have been arriving daily. New this year will be yarns from Isager Yarns and Madelinetosh. We are arranging all these lovely things now so they can greet you when the calendar turns to May!
