How It All Started

When my oldest son was just wee baby I decided to cloth diaper him. Along with cloth diapers came wool interlock shorts, knitted shorties and incredibly cute custom hand knit items! That's all it took for me to get the urge to learn how to knit. A few trips to the local craft stores left me wanting MORE. I have always been attracted to vibrant, deep saturated yarns, which the craft stores here seemed to be lacking. On a whim I ordered some bare yarn and acid dyes. I was immediately hooked! I will admit that the first few tries gave me some"interesting" results but I couldn't give up! I was determined to get it right. My very first successful skein of yarn was an absolute thrill! I knew from that moment I would be dyeing yarn, and lots of it. I have shared my passion with anyone who will listen to me. Teaching my friends and family to knit and how to dye yarn and fiber of their own.

My first successful skein

In The Deep Hue Sea means I get a creative outlet while getting to stay at home with my boys. It is SO much more than just a yarn dyeing business to us. I have always  been a working mom. As my business started growing, I realized that maybe I would be able to move from part time dyeing to full time.
