Announcement   So, there are some changes happening within 2GDD that we’d like to share, in part because they won’t be obvious to visitors to the shop but they will be affecting some of the “behind the scenes” activities. The cast of characters remain the same, but the play’s a little different! With the kids grown and gone, Bronwen and her husband are striking out for a new adventure and waving goodbye to the coast of Maine. When she’s settled in her new spot, Bronwen will continue to create accessories for Bri’s fantastic yarn, but there will definitely be an “intermission” of several months while boxes are packed and unpacked and new neighborhoods are explored and new bead shops are located. All of her current custom orders have been filled; no new custom orders will be accepted until future notice. Bri and the puppies will continue to take center stage with new ideas and colorways and stories and the daily running of the shop. So - things will change a bit, but not so’s you’d notice!


**NOTE TO INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS** Due to a significant increase in international shipping costs, we have had to increase our shipping rates accordingly. We apologize if this causes any inconvenience, and thank you for your continued support!

The colours in this yarn are just beautiful. Very soft with lovely tones and mix of colours. I am excited to knit with this one as soon as I find just the right pattern

As always with Two Grey Dogs, great yarn at a fair price. Love the colours of this one. I adore the merino and silk blend of schnauzer snuggle.

Updates

Time for a new WIP! It's Firefly Thursdays with Jayne's hat, a Rebel IPA, and casting on a new project in our Not All Necromancers yarn.
Mom's zooming up a storm! What should she make with these adorable swatches of our yarn: scarf, cowl, table runner? And don't forget, everything goes with black, so pick up a pair of Little Black Earrings to complete any look!

About

A Mother, A Daughter, and Two Grey Dogs

Two Grey Dogs Designs (2GDD) is a mother-daughter collaborative between Brianna and her mother Bronwen. The original idea for this shop started when Brianna received a fascinating gift from her parents- several skeins of yarn each paired with coordinating jewelry.

At the same time, Brianna had begun experimenting with hand-painting yarn, and Bronwen had taken up jewelry-making. Then, they realized they could combine forces and create original, funky, creative gifts for others!

Bronwen now creates jewelry from locally-purchased (and often locally-sourced) beads out of her studio on the coast of Maine. Bronwen also hand-paints unique wooden beads for her pieces. Brianna dyes out of her home in the suburbs of Boston.

And the two grey dogs? Brianna's family has owned schnauzers for as long as she can remember (and before!). The latest duo of grey dogs are (Dropkick) Murphy, almost 8, and (Flogging) Molly, age 7, Brianna's standard schnauzers. In addition to being outrageously smart, funny, lively, dedicated, and compassionate, the contrast of their collars against their fur is what inspired Brianna to begin dyeing in the first place. It's only fair, then, that credit goes to the source, and Two Grey Dogs Designs is born!

    Owner, Maker, Spare-Time Co-Owner, Dyemaster, Two Grey Dogs Wrangler

    Brianna is one half of the Two Grey Dogs Designs duo. She hand dyes all the shop's yarn at her home in Greater Boston, while working full-time in Boston. A knitter of 15+ years, a photo of her two grey dogs inspired her to begin dyeing yarn.

  • Bronwen Bamford

    Owner, Maker, Co-Owner, Jewelry Maker, Schnauzer-sitter On Demand (actually, Just A Hint Will Do It)

    Bronwen is the other half of Two Grey Dogs Designs. When Brianna's new colorway samples arrive, ta-da!, in her mailbox, she creates coordinating jewelry. Happy with paint but rather rubbish with needles, she's learning to knit while her beads dry.
