Learning features prominently in my life. I have an environmental science degree and am currently back in school to get my education degree. I try to dye yarn in the rare moments I have some time to myself but more often end up dyeing as a form of stress relief and self expression.

I have two little girls who often make requests when they see the yarn soaking in the sink. If you frequent my shop you will see my creations influence by the imagination of a 2yo and 5yo.
