Rowan, Berroco, Knitpicks, alpaca fiber, just a few of my favourites. I have found that the simpler pattern often ends up being the one that stands out with the right choice of yarn. I find a pattern I like and make many variations of it in colour and yarn choices. I custom knit for people and maintain a small yarn shop in my home (mostly my on sale stash!) I started organizing pop up craft markets around our resort lake last year and hope to expand on that this year.
