Since we moved to Bedford, lots of folks have recommended the Tavern at GrayBarns in Silvermine, Connecticut. We went for lunch recently and the food was delicious. Afterward, we crossed the street to check out Mercantile at GrayBarns, a market and café, and GrayGoods to shop gorgeous housewares. While there, I signed up for an arm knitting class with one of the owners, Nikki Glazer.
I’ve always insisted on handmade gifts from my girls, so, I thought this year I’d make them each something — a chunky throw blanket. And lo and behold, I made one (pictured top left in my kitchen). Last evening, we sat around a large farm table in Mercantile and Nikki taught us how to arm knit. It’s cool to learn something new, and rewarding to have left with a completed blanket. Thank you, Nikki.:
