Hello Indie Untangled Fiber Gurus! I’m Terri from Whole Knit ‘n Caboodle Yarns from Albany, N.Y. (it’s about an hour north of Rhinebeck). I’m from a family of crafters: sewing, painting, woodworking — anything craft related I’ve done it.
After getting back into knitting about 15 years ago and learning so many new techniques from my sister — some may know her as Mary, owner of the LYS Perfect Blend Yarn and Tea in Saugerties, N.Y. — I started dyeing yarn a few years ago and the world hasn’t been the same for me since. My yarn is mostly available through yarn shops and I do a few shows throughout the area. As of right now I have about 10 bases of yarn that I dye, from alpaca to Merino with bamboo.
There is no question that fiber people are the best inspiration to other fiber artists. I have been having the best time collaborating with people from custom colors for Fades to online yarn boxes. The fiber world is filled with fascinating people with so much inspiration. I hope I can inspire some of you to create some wonderful projects too!
