Yarn









If you ever pass through Madison (Wisconsin), look for the store in the town of Verona, which is just west of the city.

What a wonderful place The Sow's Ear is.No such shops in India maybe I should start one.

Wow! I visited a few great yarn shops in California last year, but none that had coffee! What a great combination. You've portrayed it wonderfully.(And I think I recognised that Wisconsin accent!) Even though you don't knit, don't you feel impelled to buy yarn for the colour?

Caroline said...

Wow Caroline you are no longer Potato Prints - I'd lost you - but found you when Imelda (the greenishlady) just posted about you.

Looks like I've some catching up to do...

Wonderful! I love your artwork... as always, so charming. I could almost hear the Wis-gon-sin dialect! I stayed in stayed in Lake Geneva for four months on business and I fell in love with Wisconsin. I never made it to Madison though.

I love the porch scene; and if I let myself dream a bit, I can even her the creak of the rockers on the floor planking. Wherever the place, whatever the name, whatever the language; the agenda is the same.

My wonderful old grandmother used to sometimes take me along to 'Circle' with her when I was a child. A weekly gathering of ladies would sit in a circle around the quilt they were quilting and talked the afternoon away. Your wonderful pictures brought that memory to mind.

Thanks for sharing! We have a knitting group that meets at the library I work at every Thursday. From the sound level, you'd think it was a rock concert!

Wonderful detail. I miss the cat, but he/she could create chaos in a yarn shop. The colors are lovely.

Sigh... yarn shops - I go for the colors and the textures, for the walls with their vibrant skeins and jewel-like hues. Quilting shops have the same effect in me.

Another great folksy post. It amazes me that kitting has caught back on the way it has. I think it's totally cool that people are going back to the "old ways."

You always seem to amaze us with your drawings!

Suzy said...

Take me with you some time! I have not been there yet, for all that it's been around a few years now. I keep intending to start a knitting group (and a singing circle and a ...)

I'd like to see a cat in a yarn shop ...

Great posting. I love to knit - sock mainly but with beading and drawing - okay, and with blogging, sheesh, it's difficult to find the time. One simply can't do everything much as one would want to!!

I love how you make so many different people with their own personalities!

Knitting is a fantastic craft that is a complete mystery to me. Amazing tradition and artwork when it comes to knitting, I can see why you're drawn to the Sow's Ear. Wonderful illustrations as usual! Love the colour and energy Caroline.

lila said...

So glad to have found you again...we missed your potato prints! You are still doing wonderful illustrations for your life!!![thanks to Imelda's passion for knitting and yarns!]

Mary said...

You sound just like my neighbors, from cheese country. LOL! You got the accent to a tee.

Hey, keep on. I love it here.

Hi from Lizzzy, I loved the potato prints, and wore a black arm band in deep sorrow when it left. I am so thrilled to see YOU back. It really gives my day a spark thank you.

Yah, hey!

I just found you through a link. It has been months and months...
I didn't know you started posting again.
Hope you are well.
I miss you!
I hope I didn't do something to offend you. I am commenting instead of emailing because I don't know if you received my previous emails.
I really do wish you well.
It is nice to see you here.
XO,
Melba
