The Magic of Hand-Dyed Yarns and All Things Woolly!
In February 2014, I had been on maternity leave for Winnipeg's coldest, most brutal, Game-of-Thrones-style WINTERS in a century! The only things that have helped me keep my wits about me are my loving family and a sanctuary in my house I call "The Yarnorium." It is a bright and cozy room, packed full of yarn and vibrant colour. It's a warm escape from the grey, bitter cold. I have found all kinds of inspiration in that room and rekindled my imagination and sense of adventure! It's my very own little land of Yarnia.
It just wouldn't do to hoard all that wonderful colour to myself! So, I started dabbling in yarn dyeing only to discover I have a voracious appetite for it. The instant gratification I get from every individual cake, lifts my spirits from even the dreariest of days.
Each cake is dyed separately and I put a lot of care into making sure that the gradients have smooth transitions and don't jump drastically from colour to colour. Every colourway was inspired from my favourite things, whether it's a tune, a fictional character, or a childhood memory. Every cake tells a little tale about me in some way, and I can't wait for you to experience it!
