I ordered five sets of minis for a scrap blanket I am planning to make. The minis are beautiful! I love them, and am eager to begin my project. 😊😊

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.
