Storyteller

Let me tell you a story. It’s the story of a love affair one knitter had with some yarn in her stash. She loved this yarn so very much, but couldn’t figure out exactly what it wanted to be.

Brownstone Hat

When I first started researching the buildings of Brooklyn, I was intrigued by the interplay of the red brick with the metalwork and windows.
