This is me on the beautiful (sometimes) Oregon coast!




Some of the hats I made for Caps for a Cure (chemo caps)




I made this table runner for a niece that was getting married. I also designed the pattern.

Hi, I'm Dodie in real life. My dh named me Yarnwench when I decided to open a yarn shop. I've been a knitter and crocheter almost all of my life. I'm also a military wife and archaeologist who moved with her husband. I've seen a lot of the world but am retired now as is my dh, from the military. He now works for the county as a Veteran's Services Officer.

Over the last 7 years or so I've developed stenololisthosis in my neck and the lumbar region of my back which is now causing excruciating pain every day unless I take LOTS of pain medication. My doctor and I are trying to figure out what is wrong as now the pain is in my pelvic area and is so bad I can only walk a few steps. But, now that I'm a SP I'm sure I'll get the support (besides the support of my dh who is my main caregiver and absolutely wonderful) I need.
