One of our own makes good

I can remember the first time Ariana Parenti came to my shop with her mom. She was seven years old and her mom, Dale, had just learned how to knit. Well, Ariana is now a soon to be senior art major at Yale University. She is currently participating in a summer internship program with an organization called StudioWorks in Louisville, Kentucky.

Studio works is a charitable organization that helps adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities experience a sense of belonging to community through the arts.

While Ariana's main focus has been helping the artists prepare for the Kentucky State Fair, she has also been teaching them how to knit. It is great to see someone passing on the art of knitting to others and I can only hope that The Tangled Web played some small part in Ariana's interest and enthusiasm for the fiber arts.

We Got Yarn-Bombed!

Have you heard of yarn-bombing? Knitters and crocheters leave knitted or crocheted pieces anonymously in public places, usually to beautify a manmade object. I like it!!

Well, Annie and I were looking out the window at the store today and saw that we had been yarn-bombed! Look!

This beautiful and colorful crocheted piece has "Knit, Play, Love" embroidered on it. It is so awesomely awesome I can't believe it.

Thank you, anonymous yarn-bomber!!
