DYE ALL THE COLORS! Working in the Fiber Arts was not a path I saw in my life, but I have always been into the arts. I taught music in public schools for 10 years prior to the evolution of Yarn Baby. When I became a mom, spending more time with my little people became a high priority and I went from teaching full-time to part-time to stop teaching all together.
Then entered the YARN! My babies only liked blankies made of yarn, so I started calling them my little “Yarn Babies” -- thus the name of my shop. Now my boys are little fiber experts preferring blankets made with bamboo and/or silk so they “feel cold.” They know their fibers! :-)
I started with crochet, then took a spinning class, started dyeing roving (for my own use) and then fell head over heels in love with dyeing yarn. So here I am…spinning, dyeing and selling yarn. RADICAL!

It all began with a request from a friend. She had seen a coffee mug all snuggled up in yarn and asked me to make a cozy for her coffee mug to help keep her tea warm longer. And so I did. With the purchase of this pattern, you'll get the Coffee MUG cozy pattern AND the Coffee CUP cozy pattern.
This pattern is pretty basic/simple. It does use fpdc (front post double crochet) and bpdc (back post double crochet) stitches, which are considered intermediate stitches by some - so the pattern includes detailed instructions on how to do them. A later beginner should have no problem with this pattern. If you have any questions, please let me know. I am always happy to help.
