Wind Powered Knitting Machine

Check out this Wind Powered Knitting Machine. (From what I can tell, it's a wind mill powering a vintage sock knitting machine.) Don't you wish we had one of those all hooked up last fall? We could have gotten a hundred socks, easy!

Thanks, Steven, for sending the link.

Baby Surprise Jacket

Last spring, Sally took our Baby Surprise Jacket class. And even though she sent me these pictures ages ago, I'm only now putting them up on the blog. But it was well worth the wait!

Sally says, "My granddaughter, Luci, is modeling the sweater. It was fun to make and I can't believe that blob turned into a sweater! What an interesting pattern!"

Thanks for sharing, Sally! Your granddaughter is adorable and that sweater ain't too shabby, either!

If you would like to make this sweater, we have a class coming up this November. And this time, it's not just for children! We've got the pattern sized for adults, too!

Our new schedule is not up on our website because we are in the process of redesigning it. If you would like a copy of our new class schedule, please email us ( or stop by and pick up a hard copy.

Baby Ava is here!

It seems like I can only blog these days if there's a baby born...

On Thursday, July 23 Jessica gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. Ava Jane is 8 pounds, 9 ounces (wowza!) and 20 inches. You can see pictures on Jessica's blog or on the Norton website.

Congratulations, Jessica and Chris! Your daughter is beautiful and we can't wait to meet her!
