~*Finished Projects And Pagewood Farm*~

This Summer I went to Montana to visit my hubby's family and visited Wild Purls.
I bought Itches signed by Franklin Habit and some Pagewood Farm sock bites for knitting up my wee socks.
I fell in love with the colors and texture of these yarns they are just gorgeous.
Above are pictures of my visit to Wild Purls and their lovely shop and pictures of the wee socks I knit using #9 Bird Of Paradise and #22 Really Red. Here is Robin and Chuck Page's story
Pagewood Farm grew from Robin and Chuck Page’s love of fiber arts.
As hobbyists, they mastered the art of spinning 2-ply and novelty yarns.
Selling their yarns at various venues they soon developed a loyal following.
Robin studied under master spinners and dyers to hone her creative abilities and color sense resulting in completely original colorways and novelty yarns.
As Pagewood Farm continued to grow Robin developed a unique dye process to create hand dyed yarn colors unlike any other.
While still maintaining their handcrafting roots Pagewood Farm has expanded to be featured in yarn shops nationwide and are becoming known worldwide.
Their goal, to be at the creative lead in the handcrafted fiber industry, has resulted in numerous hand dyed sock yarn and other weight yarn blends available in an ever growing list of original colorways and tone-on-tone solids.
For spinners and needle felters, roving, locks and needle felting kits have been added.
New fiber product ideas are a constant crop at Pagewood Farm.

When I was in Portland last year, I got to go a a couple of yarn shops. And if you're ever in Portland, there are bunches! One of the stores I went to carried Pagewood Farm yarns and I knit my diamond fantasy shawl from their sock weight yarn. It's wonderful! And what a great background story - thanks for sharing it with us.
