Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,
Today we visit another stop on the book blog tour at the fantastic Oiyi’s Crafts. This is a blog I have been following for years now. Angela is an incredibly talented knitter, designer, spinner and mother, check out her etsy shop. I love how she shared her adorable 3 year old daughter’s look through Spud & Chloë at the Farm. This girl is the cutest thing and she is lucky to have such a talented crafty mom. I have loved seeing all of the handmade items Angela has made for her daughter along the way.
Little Lamb is a favorite project.
The Farm Dog is perky and energetic.
The cartoon children’s story is shared frame by frame throughout the book and then all together in one place at the end.

Onto other news, late last night I finished up a big two part project for the upcoming Spud & Chloë pattern line set for June release. Remember the fair isle project in Fine I shared a sneak peek of a short while ago? That’s the one in the blues and greens. I am really excited about the way it turned out. My only wish is that I could keep it for myself but turning your finished knits over when they are done is all part of the job.
Also, I’ll be in Lexington, Kentucky at the Kentucky Sheep & Fiber Festival on May 20-22nd. I am teaching a toy knitting workshop on Saturday, May 21st and on the same day I’ll be signing books and hanging around the festival for a bit if you’d like to stop by and say hello. Hope to see you there.
