I am an aspiring spinster and certified cat lady, known as misspatina to wordpress but in ‘real life’ as Catriona. now trying to set up a business as an indie dyer, I live in Cumbria with my parents and my cat, Fred:
after being diagnosed with Crohn’s disease during my sociology PhD, I had to rearrange my life plans to acknowledge the fact that I have a chronic illness and am often, and unpredictably, ill with one thing or another. I’ve been obsessed with knitting for a number of years, but began dyeing my own yarn only recently. I love the effects of a good long-gradient dye and want to share this excitement with other knitters, in the hopes that they will enjoy knitting with my colour cakes as much as I do!
