Hello & welcome to my new blog where I’m hoping to share with you lots of knitting, crochet & yummy yarn. As well as a bit about my life as an indie dyer & single parent.
Lets start with a little introduction. My name is Jodi and I live in Halifax, West Yorkshire with my 3 beautiful children – Evelyn (8), Rose (6) & William (4). I’ve been running my business since 2010, initially making patchwork quilts but in the last 4 years I’ve grown a successful yarn dyeing business.
I love to knit & crochet, it calms me down after a busy day and keeps me sane, plus I end up with beautiful items so its a win win situation! My biggest love is shawls but this year I’m tackling socks – more on that later!
When I started to dye yarn in 2013, I never realised just how successful the business would become and quite how quickly it would grow. It soon took over my life & every single room in my home. In January 2015 I moved into a new yarn studio just up the road – I have my home back and its made work/life balance a little bit easier to keep…plus the space has made me sooo much more productive!
So thats a little about me so until next time – happy yarn squishing!
