Untangling the colors of music, one yarn at a time.
My name is Nicole, and I dye, I knit, I teach, I design, and dream in bright colors! I create yarns, fibres, and designs that I hope stoke the fires of your enthusiasm for life – and bring out your inner exclamation point! With an eye on Mother Natures’ latest, stunning color palates, I weave stories through the strands of yarn I dye.
Telling tales with texture guides my knitwear designs. I seek to create patterns that are intuitive to knit, with techniques designed to add to your ‘knitters toolbox’ of skills.
I live with gratitude on beautiful unceded Coast Salish Lands, on Vancouver Island, Canada, whose dramatic landscapes of ocean, mountains, and evergreen forest continually inform and inspire my art.
Dyeing felt like coming home, the craft I’d always been searching for. The alchemy of water, pigment, yarn, and imagination never ceases to bring me joy.
I hope my colors inspire you and bring peace as you create.
Peace & love,
aka The Spinnacle
