Month: March 2017

March Madness


With mother nature fooling us the last two weeks, we’ve had warm weather, and it’s right back to feeling winter with temperatures that are below zero.  Not to complain about Upstate New York, but as I get older, the more I can’t stand winter.  Wanting spring so badly, I wore sandals for a few days.  Now I’m right back to wearing a closed shoe.

With a few more weeks of winter, it’s time to think about spring, flowers, fashion items, and painted items from Sow’s Ear Studio.  Figuring out with doing knit, crochet, or both knit and crochet, I’ve been coming up with some new baby blanket and blanket ideas for the home, along with table runners, rugs, scarves, and shawls.  Cowls will be worked on this summer and will be presented for the fall.

New handmade items are also in the works for both Sow’s Ear Studio and Where’s The Yarn.  Items include painted candle jars with poured candles by Rosemary and Lauren Prock.  Ever since helping out a friend with his daughter’s school, I forgot what it was like to burn candles and the lovely fragrance that comes with burning the candles.  I’m currently doing research on types of candle wax, fragrances, and designs for the outside of the candle jars.  It seems to me that soy and palm waxes are the most popular with candles.  See these candles come alive with Rosemary and Lauren this spring and summer.  Purchase these handmade pieces on Where’s The Yarn’s etsy shop, Sow’s Ear Studio’s etsy shop, and Sow’s Ear Studio shop in Schenectady.
