I've known how to knit my entire life, but when I was 19 I had to wait for the bus one winter day (winters can be quite harsh here), and I decided to go in to the LYS to keep warm. One thing led to another, and I went home with a ball of commercial sockyarn and some DPN's, and I've been a vivid knitter ever since.
In 2016 I started dyeing yarn, in the beginning for my own personal use, but I quickly realized that I could never use up all of the yarns I dyed, so I started selling a little bit online. It quickly grew into a "real" business, and today I enjoy every day of running an small company whilst working a little bit in a yarn store on the side.
All my yarns are created in in a little studio which I've set up in the basement of the house. I'm lucky enough to have a door in the studio which leads me directly outside, so that I can let my yarns dry in the midnight sun. At winter, I can't dry the yarn outside, but it's still amazing to be able to go directly out in the snow and enjoying a little bit of winter and northern lights when I need a break from work. This winter coming up, I've decided I'm going to try some snow dyeing, and for the first time I'm actually looking forward to the first snowfall.
