I am a busy Nona, lucky enough to have ‘retired’ and now busier than ever. Dyeing yarn caught my imagination when I was hunting for some thicker sock yarn for my son and found it limited. So I dyed him some and the bug took hold.

I also love making accessories such as shawls and scarves. Only so many a girl needs though! So surplus items will be added to my store.

I’m not looking to make a fortune but any surplus I make will go on special care items for the dogs I foster for a local rescue. A cosy blanket designed for incontinent ex breeding dogs, special harnesses, the right nutrition and basic veterinary care come at a cost. The TLC they desperately need I provide for free.

So I’m hoping my obsession with colours and yarn can go a small way to helping these souls find a new least of life.
