My Shop Story

I recently retired and moved, and made it through several other big transitions. My husband and I moved from the Minneapolis area to a lake home in Otter Tail County, north of Fergus Falls, Minnesota. I like to knit and spin, read, walk and hike, go bike riding, watch movies, drink mochas, travel, hang out with family and friends, and other things. I sell yarn and hand made goods. I never have trouble keeping busy.

In the fall of 2018 I bought the entire inventory from The Yarn Shop in Glen Arbor, Michigan, when the owner (my cousin) retired at age 86. I have some of the hand knit store samples for sale here on my ETSY shop, in addition to things I made myself.

I write a blog about my fiber projects and other adventures living in the country. You can find it at:
