During November’s trip to NYC, I chose Brooklyn as one of my marathon-watching outposts specifically so that I could visit my friend Rachel at Woolyn. In 2018, she spearheaded the #28DaysOfYourLYS Instagram challenge, which saw even wider participation in 2019.
This year, it’s been a group project to come up with the daily prompts and fine tune them, but Yarn Folk will participate again—with posts on both Instagram and Facebook. Look for the hashtag beginning February 1st!

We were expecting Wool Local, one of our choices for the Hinterland KAL on Friday, but a customs delay resulted in the delivery being rescheduled for toda!.
Another video to share this week, so if the clickable thumbnail doesn’t appear above, this link will take you to it! Mainer Dottie Brown turns 105 in March, and has been knitting for 100 years. As the video illustrates, the community she has built among her stitching friends has helped her to continue living independently in her home, where she hosts a regular “Sit and Knit” circle on Thursday nights.
In addition to the video, News Center Maine published an online companion story here.
