One cold day can change everything
I started knitting nine years ago, when my husband and I relocated to New England from sunny Florida. One blustery October day I had a stunning realization: that day was as cold as the coldest winter day in Florida...and it was only October. A little fear overtook me when I started to think about what February in New England was like. On my way home from work that day I stopped at the store buying needles, yarn and a little booklet. I curled up on the couch for the next 12 hours, and knit a scarf to wear to work the next day. I haven't stopped since.
Like any good hobby, knitting allows me to explore my interests while continually providing a challenge. I've branched out into hand dyeing yarn, spinning yarn on Adina, my Polish castle wheel, and learning to weave on my rigid heddle loom.
Thanks to my customers, my shop has taken a turn in the direction of including photography props. Please feel free to convo me with any suggestions or ideas for special orders. I'd love to help!

I originally started dyeing yarn for longies and shorties--cloth diaper covers--at the request of friends. Here, you will find some of the more popular colorways of theirs, as well as some newly created ones. Many are even self-striping, creating fun patterns for kiddos.
