SHOP FOR YARN AT ---> I've been wanting a pair of fingerless/thumbless gloves for ages, but I wanted an optional mitten/finger flap for those moments were it is particularly cold. I was unable to find anything I liked, so I decided to write my own pattern. I made a pair for myself, and loved them. As I was writing the pattern many changes were made and now I love them even more! The option of having your fingers and thumb free allow for typing, texting and crocheting while wearing them - a must have for any yarnaholic! ;-) Text and photos Copyright (c)2013 by Yarn Baby, aka My Yarn Baby, all rights reserved.

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! Online yarn shop owner of only natural fiber yarns; cotton, wool, hand-dyed and handspun.
