Note from shop owner Thank you so much for your support of my shop.
I have decided to stop selling sock yarn mini skeins at this time. I do plan to relaunch the shop in the near future with handmade purses, project bags, quilts etc.

She has always been my go to for yarn minis. I don’t know what I’ll do now that she is no longer going to sell them. These are nice and exactly as she pictured.

About

For the love of yarn!

I've always been a crafter. When I was a little girl, I drove my mom crazy always wanting supplies for my next project. I was lucky that my mom sewed and she taught me to sew on her old machine - an old treadle machine in the basement. Our next door neighbor also supported my creative endeavors and she taught me to knit and crochet. I am forever thankful to these wonderful ladies for teaching me the joy of "making".

In 2006, I started designing knitting patterns and created my own pattern company, KalamazooKnits. When I sold the business in 2011, the hardest part of selling was giving up my Etsy store.

About that same time, I caught the Beekeepers Quilt fever and I fell in love with mini-skeins. The Beekeepers quilt is made from hexipuffs knit from a variety of yarn colors - hence the need to collect vast quantities of yarn! The hexipuffs are stuffed with fiberfill and sewn together for a knit version of a popular fabric quilt design. I wanted to create my hexipuffs in all of my favorite yarns and I thought others might enjoy them too!

Mermaid Knitting was born and I've been knee deep in mini-skeins every since! I love to live by the water, my middle name is Pearl, and I believe mermaids are my kindred spirits. I'm quite sure they can be found in my beloved Gulf of Mexico knitting sea weed into delightful creations.

I was looking for a yarn supplier that could offer high quality sock yarn in a wide range of colors - and Rhichard Devrieze and his new yarn company entered my life.

Knitting brings me so much joy - and I hope that my sock yarn mini skeins also strike joy in other knitters. Recently I added project bags to the shop - joining my love for knitting and sewing into each zippy pouch!

    I love knitting and being involved in the knitting business. Selling mini-skeins is a way for me to help knitters build their collection of minis with quality yarn at a great price.
