We are two friends brought together in the Queen City of Charlotte by our love for knitting and yarn. Casual wine and dye nights together nurtured our passion for putting color to skein.  Now we want to share that passion with you!

Christen is a knitter and yarn dyer who dabbles in spinning, weaving, and the occasional crochet project.  A contagious love of knitting leads her to inspire others to learn to knit or expand their comfort zone with new techniques.  Christen is never without knitting close at hand and a firm believer that anyone can master any project… after all it’s just 1 stitch after another.

For Janis, knitting is a natural outlet for her creativity. She is a prolific knitter of sweaters, socks and is a connoisseur of finely crafted yarns. Janis currently co-hosts a weekly knitting podcast and loves networking with fellow fiber fans. She brings to the partnership an eye for color, a passion for design, and a drive to create.

Our products start with one of six great yarn bases, each named for a neighborhood in the Queen City that reflects their personality.  The colors we apply are inspired by the beautiful things we see around us as well as breathtaking places we have visited.  While each color we produce can stand on its own, we pay special attention to creating a series of complementary colors.  We strive to make it easy to pick one or more great colors for your next project.
