  • Summer fun!

    Last week was a blast! Thursday was Stitch N' Pitch at Safeco Field.  We didn't have a booth this year but we had t-shirts, we had buttons and we had a whole lot of fun!  Karen and I enjoyed the game (and I enjoyed the garlic fries!), saw bunch of knitters and visited other LYS booths. 



    Friday was the start of Timber Music Festival here in Carnation.  I can't say enough wonderful things about this event!  The music was amazing!  I especially enjoyed Bryan John Appleby and Zoe Muth and the Lost High Rollers.  My family met up with friends there and we all had a great time, especially the kids.  The event was really well organized, family friendly (there was a free kids concert on Saturday morning AND a root beer garden), and clean (Klean Kanteen was there to provide reusable water bottles and reusable beer cups).  The weather was perfect and it was so awesome to see all the concert goers enjoying the the river, the park and walking around our small town!  I can not wait for next years Timber Music Festival!  (You can see more photos on Instagram, hashtag #timberfest.) 




  • What We've Been Up To

    We have been very busy here at Tolt Yarn and Wool.  Greg has been working hard giving 4509 Tolt Ave a little face lift.



    If you have driven by recently you will notice the new corbels and the lovely new paint color.  There has also been a lot of improvements on the inside.  The old wood flooring was ripped out due to some rotting and radiant floor heating has been installed and soon the concrete floor will be poured.  Greg has salvaged most of the wood flooring and will put it to good use building fixtures and shelving.


  • Shearing Day

     

    Once a year we gather our sheep together for shearing. We send the newly shorn fleece to a mill where it is processed and returned to us in the form of skeins. I'm always surprised how many skeins are made from our little flock.  Take a look at the process below!
