Yarn Harvest Time


The harvest moon has been shining these past few nights and it's time to offer up some of my home-grown crop of fiber for those of you who've been asking.  I'm planning a little harvest festival of yarn,  to be held here at the farm on Saturday,  October 13th,  from 11 am to 4 pm.  I plan to have lots of freshly dyed and natural colored wool/alpaca yarn and a selection of natural colored wool/alpaca roving in the studio.  Most likely, I'll have a few small, handknitted items to offer and there will be fresh, local apple cider and home baked cookies to reward you after your journey out to Nonesuch.

Even if you are not a knitter or spinner,  you're invited to come to the farm to meet the sheep and alpaca boys and enjoy what I hope will be a beautiful fall day in the country.  We are approximately 30 to 35 minutes outside of Lexington,  in Woodford county.  It's a pleasant drive and you'll get to see some picturesque Bluegrass countryside while you are on the way.

Tanglewood Farm is located at 4565 Cummins Ferry Road,  Versailles,  Kentucky.  Please feel free to email me,  if you should need further directions.  Depending on where you are coming from,  there are several options.  I'll have a sign up at the crossroads in Nonesuch and there is a Tanglewood sign at the entrance to our farm road,  so you can't miss us.

If you'd like to extend your time in the country,  Shakertown at Pleasant Hill is a short drive from here (20-25 minutes) and lunch at The Glitz,  just a mile away from the farm,  is always a good idea!  

We're looking forward to seeing you soon!

  3. I wish I could come. I've been lusting after that logwood yarn since you blogged about it, but I'll be on retreat in Indiana.
