Iren’s new book: …it’s a cardigan

Posted on: April 29th, 2012 by Iren Rothenberger No Comments

As life continues with surprising and thought provoking tales, so does my ‘knitting’ of prosaic and poetic yarns.
It is told that when the policeman asked the truck driver to pull-over, he held up his knitting and said: It’s a cardigan.
Here it is: A diverse collection of poems, essays and stories with many photos and paintings.

You can preview selected sections throughout the book as well as purchase it at Blurb’s printing cost.

If you’d like a signed and dedicated book, let me know, or come by to borrow the book to read.
All the best

My first web store is launched!

After a substantial process of learning and the invaluable expertise of Design&Developer Aaron Hanson it all came together. Please check out the store and let me know your experience and suggestions that might improve it.

I welcome visitors to my studio in Fort Bragg, California. You will find works that are not listed in the store or we can discuss custom orders. You will also be able to browse Stefan’s woodworking workshop and his fun collection of new toys: Flip-flop geese, Olivia’s first toolbox, puzzles and more. They will be exhibited at the Mendocino Art Center this December. Please contact me to set up a time for a visit and get directions.

I wish you warm and delicious holidays. Iren

before and after

Posted on: May 5th, 2009 by Iren Rothenberger No Comments

on a gray, wet, rainy, not so sunny Sunday, what would you rather wear:
a somber bucket hat
or rather
one if Iren’s bright and sparkling fleece hats,
did you know they keep the water out
and stay dry and cozy inside? Just shake it off when you come back inside.
