Hey there!  I’m Heddle. I like long walks in the meadow… Oh, not yet? Answer the questions below?  Oh! Oh yes, now I see…


Mountain climbing, sub-zero temperatures, and my posse (AKA “the Herd”).


Uneven warp tension, snow leopards, and habitat loss

Yaksmas! As a child the stories of Stinky Wizzleteats and his Shaven Yak were always my favorite.

Favorite Number:


Favorite Type of Food:

I love a Smorgasbord.  Or Tapas. All those delectable little plates. So many choices!

Craziest Thing I Have Ever Done:

Agreeing to mountain climbing with Heddle. I mean, do I look like I was meant to sleep out of doors?

About myself. It’s not about me. It’s about loving others. Of course I love myself, but I’m more interested in admiring the abundance of variety in the world.

Most Embarrassing Memory:

Falling off the mountain on that trip with Heddle. I know I’m “officially” a mountain goat, but really.  I mean… really?

Historical Period I Would  Like to Visit:

Ancient Rome. Did you know, my family provided Cashmere to the noblemen of the Roman Empire?

Do I Collect Anything:

I have an oddly large collection of tatted stars and yarn pompoms.  I couldn’t say how either started.

Describe the mascot below in one word:


Hey there.  I’m Batts. And what do you mean “woolgathering?” Just because I can’t always keep up with my thoughts… I mean it is funny though.  Woolgathering.  Because I’m a sheep.  Ha!  Oh, right about me.  Sure, let’s play.

My Secret Talent:

A Houdini-like ability to escape any confinement.

Do I Look Like Someone Famous:

As wee lamb I was told I look a lot like my grand-sire who was the inspiration for “Baa Baa Black Sheep.”

Last Project I Finished:

Wow. That’s not really fair.  I LOVE a new project so much!  I’m sure I must have finished something.  Although, you know, I HAVE worn a shawl out once that still had the needles in.  Just tucked them into the fleece and no one was the wiser.  And it WAS close to finished.

Best Friend:

I can’t say I have a BEST friend. I’m friends with so many. Brioche is a delight. 

Favorite Holiday:

Knit in Public Day!

Favorite Ice Cream Flavor:

Apple and Walnut.  What!?  It would be delicious, but I’m lactose intolerant, so just the apples and walnuts for me.

Favorite Fibercraft:

I’m Bi-stitchual, as they say.  Ha Ha! I love cooking as well.  Tried my hoof at papercraft, quilting, floral design… those are not fiber though.

Favorite Color:

Lime Green. It’s so juicy! Oh, but I saw this sky blue the other day… No, it’s lime green.  I think.

Superpower I Would Most Like to Have:

Super strength.  Or, maybe flight would be better? Reading minds would be interesting, but can you imagine having even MORE thoughts in your head?

My Favorite School Subject:

Penmanship. But also Earth Science.

My Favorite Season of the Year:

I love spring.  The new grass is tasty, the skys are clear, and I get my annual haircut.
