Outside at Gaspereau Fibres, in Gaspereau Valley…about just 10 minutes into the countryside from our home…


Inside… Miss “Purl” sleeps in a basket which houses hand knitted hats. The wood stove is warming us all, but Purl has the wool beneath her, around her, above her…she doesn’t need anything more…she is oblivious of everything, in her slumber nest. We, meanwhile, about 20 women of varied ages, sit around a large wooden table, embrace the heat, and *knit…and talk, and talk, and fall silent, working on our knitting, then talk and talk.* Repeat from * to * for up to 4 hours.
