About ToilandTrouble

On Etsy since 2008

Geeky Fiber Fiend

It all started with an 8 year old girl and a crochet hook. That little girl spent all her time designing her own crochet pieces and dreamed of selling them one day.

Soon after learning to crochet, I learned to knit. I spent all my time playing with yarn, designing (admittedly not the greatest) pieces, and pretending to sell them on a table outside my bedroom door. I didn't get many customers, but it was the beginning of a dream.

Over the years, knitting took a back seat and I experimented with many loves, including illustration, watercolors and oil-painting. I even went to school and got degrees in psychology and architecture, but the call of fiber never stopped. In 2009, I gave into my love of fiber. I started my business and found my way back to that original childhood dream. When I learned how to dye my own yarn, I got to combine my love of playing with color, painting and fiber.

I love creating fun accessories and colorful yarn! I hope you love them too.

I believe that yarn is a manifestation of possibility! When I design knit pieces, I am investigating the process of creation and embracing the blank slate that is yarn. When I am dyeing yarn, I feel like I am creating little pieces of possibility to share with the world.
