Fall Knitting + Color Retreats at
Hello Knitters, Stitchers and Farm Friends,
Kristin Nicholas' Sheep Farm
I can feel autumn encroaching. The days are getting shorter, we're thinking about closing the windows in the evening, and the fall color is starting to happen. There is still time left to enjoy the shorter days and all that autumn has to offer - including the cooler weather for knitting and creating. Here at the farm, I've planned some new classes and I wanted to take this opportunity to share them with you. You will notice that in 2012 I have introduced some One Day Classes for those closer to our farm.
