Alexis learned to knit from her mother at a very young age, but it took a long break in life to get past a terrible imitation of a scarf. In her 20’s Alexis picked it up again to help focus her ADHD. Using the power of the worldwide web and some instructional books, she retaught herself to knit, and never stopped.
Always a pretty big, self-proclaimed geek, embracing D&D, video games, comics, knitting just seemed to fit right in. From there the passion moved to all thing’s fibre. Knitting, crocheting, spinning… why not learn to dye what she needed! When an opportunity to learn hands on came around, she reached out to Theresa who was fully on board to learn too!
That was when the real love of dyeing started. The more they did the more there was to learn. Once there was more dyed yarn than either could possibly use the idea began to form for the business. Alexis enjoys vibing with the fibre community and learning anything new! You can catch her at all events and markets knitting, crocheting and sometimes spinning! As the real sock knitter of the duo she enjoys testing new patterns and gifting her creations to her family.
