Meet The Team
I am primarily a knitter, but I learned to spin during COVID and I love it!
It is always changing, but right now I'm really enjoying String Turin; a gorgeously soft cashmere tweed.
Definitely a process knitter! Give me miles of garter stitch and reruns of Schitt's Creek and I'm a happy girl.
I am the one thing in life I can control. - Lin-Manuel Miranda.
running a small business, raising 2 teenages boys, or mixing up cocktails with friends.
Knitting is my focus, with sweater knitting being my passion. I love modifying a sweater pattern to fit just right. The more math the better!
Hand dyed yarns, like Malabrigo, are what really fueled my love of knitting when I first got started. Lately the Farmer's Daughter hand dyed yarns have been my frequent go to for all projects from sweaters to socks. Their rich colors and luscious fibers keep me reaching for them with every new project.
Definitely a product knitter with a capital P. I want all the sweaters and I want to wear them now! I knit with every spare moment I have. My hands are never idle.
Always knit a swatch to check your gauge. And wash your swatch too! Most patterns will say some version of "save time by checking gauge" and it's really true. Swatch always.
Firstly I am almost always crafting, but when not I'm probably playing a board game or cooking...or sleeping.
I knit, crochet, spin and dabble in weaving.
I'm happiest when I can combine the two but if I had to choose, I prefer product knitting.
"Be messy and complicated and afraid and show up anyways" - Glennon Doyle Melton
looking for a new project to make!
I’m bistitchual (meaning I knit and crochet), but I also love frame loom weaving and punch needle.
Definitely a process knitter. No matter the circumstance, no matter my mood, knitting is my most effective form of decompression - almost a meditation. It doesn’t matter what I’m making, as long as my hands are moving.
“I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center.” - Kurt Vonnegut
busy being a mama, outside exploring the PNW, or blasting music in my kitchen while cooking something yummy.
I've been into hearty yarns lately and Ireland's Studio Donegal, Soft Donegal yarn is a lovely worsted weight tweed.
Definitely a process knitter. I like to enjoy every stitch.
I like to start the day with this question: "What would love have me do today?" - Jack Kornfield
Reading, cooking, hiking/walking, hanging with my husband and dogs.
Knitting, but I’m starting to crochet again.
Brooklyn Tweed Tones, Shibui Haven, Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light, Juniper Moon Farm Patagonia Organic Merino, and Spincycle Dyed In the Wool.. um I have more that I have in my stash that I haven’t gotten to yet.
Both. I need to like and hopefully love the yarn I’m knitting with and be excited about what I’m making.
I have lots of favorites but right now it’s “Every ‘No’ makes room for the right ‘Yes.’"
doing yoga, exercising, reading nutrition/wellness books, or in my garden (but not necessarily working in it)
Knitting. Also a fledging weaver on my 4 harness loom.p>
So many favorites! Currently: Isager, Rosy Green Wool, Biches et Buches, Juniper Moon Farm. I tend to enjoy a finer gauge for knitting and lean toward a more “natural” or rustic fiber…Unless of course its silk or linen which I also love!
Definitely a process knitter!
Again, so many! However, I do like this Chinese Proverb: “Keep a green tree in your heart and perhaps a singing bird will come.”
wishing I were! Presently consumed in the midst of a huge makeover of our new home! I love playing with our horses and savoring the beauty of Nature.
