True value.

As it happens, I bought two Navajo rugs recently, which currently take pride of place in front of the stove and the sink in my kitchen.

And there is zero whining over how much they cost.

Apropos of which, Marian of my knitting group recently ran across this online:knitting time calculator.jpg

Handmade. It’s not for Scrooges.

  1. Wow. What a commitment. Love the rugs, by the way. And I am not a knitter of anything, except maybe knots.

    I met you at LCC last Saturday in the lobby and told you that I’d be writing a ‘favorites’ piece about you and Kate. You gave me your email address, but I promptly forgot it. Anyway, my post is up today and I wanted to thank you for talking with me and letting me ask a couple of questions, take a picture, be a ‘fangirl’. LOL

    If you’d like to take a look,here’s the link:

    And thank you so much again for so many wonderful hours of Alaskan dreams and Kate and Chopper Jim. 🙂

  2. Love this! I’m constantly asked about selling my knitting. Most of the time the cost of yarn turns them away. I like the good stuff. Your rugs are worth every penny that was spent.

  3. As a knitter, thank you, thank you, thank you! I also spin the yarn I use, and if one more person asks “why don’t you just use acrylic?” I will not be responsible for the Kate sized response. Meanwhile, thank you for the innumerable hours of pleasure I get from reading and listening to all your books. They are works of ar To!
