Katie Franceschi

I’m Katie – the dynamic dyer behind www.ShopYarnLove.com . I love to knit, spin and design patterns. I spend my days caring for my 4 fabulous kiddos, dyeing yarn and designing patterns.

I’ve recently made my way into designing knit wear patterns and have been thoroughly enjoying it! If you check my blog, you’ll see some of my designs before they’re released!

Some random facts:
I am 31 years old, live in a small town in the Midwest (USA) across the street from a cornfield, and all most of the walls in my home are painted some version of brown. The ones that aren’t brown are a deep, cranberry red. I think coffee and dessert are the best foods ever! A day is never complete without both.

When I’m not dyeing, knitting or designing you might find me reading, brewing beer or watching a movie with my husband.
