A Good Time, Sarasota

I just got back from teaching at A Good Yarn in Sarasota, Florida. Susan and her crew are a class act.  I was treated really well, and her yarn store is nothing short of a candy store for fiber folks.  Who knew a yarn store in 80 degree weather would be packed!  But I witnessed it myself. 

Who doesn't love exclusives?  Susan has teamed up with several talents in the dyeing yarn business and has developed many colorways that are uniquely their own.  You can check them out on their shop here.  I was lucky enough to score a skein of the Madeleine Tosh "Tosh Merino Light" in the Midnight Pass color.

I will be designing a shawl for Susan and it will be available exclusively through A Good Yarn, Sarasota.  The yarn itself is also available on their website.


  1. John, Can't wait to see the new shawl pattern, I know it will be amazing!. The Tosh yarn looks fabulous.
    Your book outline done, Congratulations!
    Keep us posted on your progress.

    Cheers, Liz

  3. Thank you John!
