Through Patreon, I'll be unlocking the mystery of dyeing self-stripingesq sock blanks. Regular subscribers at any tier will have access to my documentation of the process, while high-level subscribers will receive seasonally dyed sock blanks.

About Me
I'm the daughter of two semi-retired artists - one was a graphic arts designer and the other was a children's book illustrator. The end result is that I've always had a life-long obsession with color and an on-again off-again relationship with crafts. I've been a potter, a paper maker and a book binder, but through all of these crafts, I’ve knit.

Heavily influenced by a life-long obsession with color, I decided to explore the creation of the colors of the yarns I worked with and began playing with a yarn dyeing kit.

Many of the products I sell are fine yarns, meant to be used for socks, gloves or mittens. Fine yarns are verseratile enough to be used in a wide variety of projects.

I love thinking about all the colors that people will wear on their feet, no matter the occasion or where they work. As a knitter, I love working with colors that I enjoy looking at and am particularly fond of jewel tones and of blue-greens (though if you looked in my sock drawer, many of the pairs would have red in them).

I work on three fates yarns part-time. I work in higher education at a public community college where I analyze sustainability and do research that supports our operational sustainability program. As someone who works in sustainability, and as a Korean American adoptee, I care deeply about social justice. My office has some initiatives and projects that work to ensure that people of color are included, appreciated, and are welcomed into the sustainability space within higher education. 

The issues are similar to those going on in the knitting community; as a result, I share what I know, continue to learn, and teach what I can about dyeing yarn, running a crafting business, about environmental issues, and about creating inclusive spaces.
