Happy Fall!

I have not updated on the blog, I’m sorry, it’s been a crazy year. Our last show was in Sept of 2019 and I was diagnosed with breast cancer, so we’ve been going thru treatment, and with the Covid-19 – I literally go no where. My house is safe and comfy and I have the best nurse in the world (my husband, Jim)

Anyhoo, I have kept up with orders and dyeing . It’s nice to have a normalicy again.

Our grandkids live in Ohio and we are in Wisconsin so we are doing as much face time as we can, they don’t always want to talk to MIMI ! they are 2 and 5 yrs old.

New colorways to add to our Door county series is Fish Creek. I have it dyed up in Zig Zag and Tippy Toes and Roving. Will do some Michigan as soon as I can use my arms again, just had reconstructive surgery. The Door County series is special to me because we have spent alot of time up there in all the seasons, and the towns, it’s just so much to do and see. I love the colors, I think you will too.

I do have some Rick Rack left, just not a ton, so if you want to order some, call me and I can tell you what I have in stock. Our supplier for it is gone, so we have made the decision to continue with Zig Zag which is very close, just a touch heavier. Still a nice sheen and wonderful hand, for weaving and knitting , and crochet.

I also have some show stock available in Sweet Feet which is a wool and silk binder, wonderful hand to it, and I can do a sweater size small with two skeins. The yarn is also great for mittens, hats and scarves.

I’m, hoping everything will get back to normal soon, I miss seeing you all at the shows and festivals. You inspire me!

Stay safe and Well!

Birch Trees and Grandbabies…Oh, and Yarn Club news, too

Yarn Club box ready for shippingHelllllllloooooo! It was a long month in January due to cold, snow, rain, ice etc…you get the picture. Today the sun is out and life is good again! I have the February Yarn Club boxes already sent out (early), but I also have a few left, so am going to give you all a peek at what they contain.

The Yarn Club yarn of the month this month is our famous Toasty Toes yarn. It is 580 yds. approx. of wonderful soft merino superwash yarn that I have dyed up in a colorway reminiscent of our winter Birch trees that wind thru our woods. They are a smattering of creamy white with brown and black areas that are so attractive to me. I love the Birch Trees that have been photographed in the sun and the different colors of grey and black really stand out.

Next in the box is a handmade ceramic button. This was made for us by a local artist Stuart Van Swol of Windmill Fiber Arts. Stu makes a ton of buttons for me so I’m sharing the love with you all. Another one of my favorite things in the cold winter is hot tea and a swizzle stick to sweeten it up!

The next box is for March. I will be previewing it in a few weeks, but I might give you a peek ahead of time, so get your orders in for the next three boxes if you are not currently in our club. We also will be featuring our Rayon textured yarns and a few luxury yarns that I’ve found at market.

Oh, did I mention that we have a new grandbaby coming? She will be due in mid June and this gramma is pretty excited. Jim and I will be out in Colorado for Estes Park, but we will high tail it back home after the show to see the new addition. Stay warm, and keep on creating! Hugs and kisses for Valentines Day! xxxooo

Happy New Years and may your knitting basket always be full and full of fun yarns!

stranded knitting multiple colorsWell the Christmas holidays are past now, and we’re on to the new year! 2018! What an exciting year for us at Interlacements Yarns, on the personal side, Jim is retiring from his job in April , and thus will be on the road with me for shows more! Also, we are expecting another grandchild in June!

On the business side of things, we are starting up a Yarn Club which I believe will be a lot of fun for the members. I’ve always wanted to share a few of my favorite things and new colorways I am creating with members first so here is the chance. I went on a buying spree and purchased some silk and wool yarns, and other luxury fibers to add to the mix up. Sheryl Theis has graciously designed a few new patterns for us to give you in your boxes and we are pretty excited about that. I’ve also added more types of spinning fibers to the new line up, will start photographing them next week. And weaving warp chains will get their own pictures too. I’m so grateful to my shops, customers and friends for all the support and love. Please keep sending your finished garments pictures to me so I can add to the gallery. We love seeing them!

Happy New Years and may your knitting basket always be full and full of fun yarns!

Fall into Winter Spinning Retreat

Polwarth Roving dyed up in Gills Rock colorway

Montana retreat was a blast! I’ve never taken a formal spinning or fiber class before so it was my first time as a student. I LOVED it! The retreat was a Yarn and Yoga, put on by Kate Larson. It was held at the Boulder Hot Springs resort in Boulder Montana. I flew out of Green Bay to switch planes in Minneapolis and then Minneapolis to Helena. I packed light for the trip as all I needed was yoga clothing and swim suit and my spinning wheel.   The hotel is fantastic, old world charm and great healing vibes. We had access to the outdoor hot spings swimming pool and the indoor plunge and cold water plunge. WOW !!! I found out how I can turn into total mush after a massage session. Oh yea, there are massage therapists on staff and my mother treated me to an hour and a half massage! Thank you Mom!!

The food was great, healthy, organic and wonderfully tasty. I wore slippers all day long and totally got relaxed in the hot springs. Our wonderful Yoga instructor Kelly really did her research on what muscles we needed to work and relax and made the class so nice to be in.

Needless to say, I learned a lot from Kate on spinning the different fibers and why and how to . Each student also created a journal of their spinning fibers with personalized notes and pictures.

I made some new friends at the retreat, and will enjoy seeing how they grow in their spinning also.

What a wonderful way to start off the fall time.

Got home just in time to pack up and head for North Carolina . We do a fiber show there called SAFF. I LOVE this show. My customers come in year after year to show me what project they made with my yarns and I love seeing them.


Jim had a good time giving out trick or treat candy to the kids and beaded bracelet kits to the adults. This year we rented a house with friends and enjoyed that too.

Now it’s back to work for me, no more shows until February. I’ve been dyeing up all sorts of yarns and making warp chains and socks. I’ll post them in a bit.


We have our kids coming home for Turkey day so I’m getting ready for that too. My little B. likes to get into MiMi’s spinning stuff and knitting so I’ll put it up outta reach and save me the worrry (and him the temptation) and as my daughter once said, “Happy Birthday Turkey!”
