Goodbye Where’sTheYarn?, hello lmprock on my website, my etsy shop, my Facebook fan page, and on my art group. I feel like ever since I’ve been posting all these great things on my blog, my title did not suit me as well as it should. I thought wanted to just focus on knit, crochet, and yarn shops but starting another blog for me felt like more work and readers bouncing back and fourth from a personal blog to a business blog. Not to mention I have a wonderful and creative life and would like to share. See more on my blog and group.
UPDATE ON WHERE’S THE YARN?
Hello October, just to let everyone know, I changed both my blog title and domain to Lauren Prock. With moving our shop on Upper Union Street back home, wanting to talk more about just my knit, crochet, polymer clay, I figured it would be best to change the website/blog to my name. My Etsy shop will remain as Where’s The Yarn, for that’s my business name and the product I work on. I’ve already been posting all these great things on my blog, I just felt that having my own name would be best.
New eBook on amazon.com with old world photographs of knitters, quotes, black and white, vintage postcards, and more. This is a unique book because there’s no how to projects, just photographs.

Happy September and looking forward to a beautiful Fall. Took pictures of these beautiful, but deadly mushrooms in my backyard at home in Niskayuna New York. Still moving our business from Schenectady back home to Niskayuna. Had more things to move then we thought. Looking forward to bringing the business back to our home studio and being able to focus on our online shopping business. See us move back to our home studio at the end of September.
