Join me at the Knitter’s Nest!!

I’m very excited to announce that I will be having a trunk show at The Knitter’s Nest in Clarkston, MI from Friday, August 2nd – Saturday, August 10th. This coincides with the I-75 Yarn Crawl. I will be present at the shop on Friday, August 2nd and Saturday, August 10th. The yarn will be there the entire week.

I will have my most popular colorways available such as Autumn Speckles, Cathedral, and Life’s A Beach.

Are you a local Sports fan? I have yarns for the Detroit Tigers, Detroit Lions, Detroit Red Wings and college team yarns for University of Michigan, Michigan State, Central Michigan and Ohio State.

I got started dyeing yarn in 2016 when my husband asked for wool fingerless gloves for hunting. After failed searches for a soft yarn, I learned how to dye yarn using Easter egg dye pellets. After seeing the color bubble up and color a bare skein of yarn, I knew I was HOOKED!

I moved into using professional acid dyes and began to make my popular Woodland Camo and Hunter’s Orange yarn. I began experimenting with speckling and other techniques.

I am a regular vendor at the Ann Arbor Fiber Expos in April and October. I love talking with customers about my passion and various projects they’ve made or plan to make. It’s very nice to see how they pair some of my yarn colors together that gets my creative juices flowing!

I would like for you to plan a trip to the Knitter’s Nest and say hi.

Join me at the Fall Fiber Expo Oct 21-22, 2017!

I’m preparing for my second Fiber Expo show and wanted to tease you with some new colorways I’ll be bringing!

 

My newest colorways are available next week at the Fall Fiber Expo in Ann Arbor, MI. Show details listed below.  Listed top to bottom and left to right, choose from Cake Sprinkles, Let’s Roar (perfect for Detroit Lions fans), Sunkissed Berry, Cathedral, Garden Gnome Green and finally Burgundy.

I will also have plenty of my Woodland Camo yarn that I had at the spring Fiber Expo in both worsted and fingering weights.

Available Kits

New at the show this year are two of my recent designs kitted up with the color pattern and the yarn.  This way you don’t have to get the pattern from Ravelry and print it out. You can take the kit home and get started right away!

My Expedition Shawl kit features the pattern and two skeins of yarn – Sugar Plum and Gray, which were used in my sample shawl that debuted in the spring.  The second kit, In the Wood hat, features the pattern and a worsted weight skein of my Woodland Camo yarn perfect for you or your favorite outdoors person!
