How Yarn Habits Began

2017 about us faith family small business yarn

Yarn Habits Iris at Trunk Show


Thank you for checking out my shop! Let me tell you how this all got started... I was in the military for 20 years and specialized in criminal investigations. As you might imagine, there were many stressful and overwhelming times that weighed heavy on my heart. I was fortunate to have my faith and found that knitting & dyeing became my outlets.

As we go on, I hope to share more about me and my work in the blog. Oh, and something else that deserves mentioning is that I can't seem to finish a knitting project! I get distracted with all the new patterns coming out and buying yarn from my favorite dyers. (heh) My symptom is Castonitis so dyeing yarn allows me to finish something colorful and beautiful.  

Okay, so one night in January 2017, my friend Kelly (@fashionschooldropout) and I were talking about our future goals. Kelly's words of encouragement to go after my dreams motivated me to go for the things that I want to do. One of my dreams is dyeing yarn. Second dream is to publish a knit pattern. These new ventures may not pan out as well I imagine, but I’m ready to give it a 100% - while hopefully having fun along the way.

Sisters Iris and Vivian

As of August 2019, Vivi has fully joined me on this adventure, and I am on cloud nine. She is extremely smart, sweet, hilarious, thoughtful, helpful and now you will get to meet her too. I will share more about Vivi in the upcoming weeks.

Let’s cast on,

Iris & Vivian

    I like your site a lot. Keep up the good work. I wish I knew something about knitting, so I could purchase something from you.
