Good Water and Co. was born out of frustration. As a knitter frequenting public transit on trips into and out of New York City, I struggled to find a bag that would keep my yarn neat, my notions accessible, and my projects safe — while still keeping all of those other real life essentials, like my phone, wallet, and keys, close at hand.
I went through bag after bag, but nothing quite worked. Finally, I hit my limit. I grabbed some fabric, some batting, and a pair of scissors, determined to make a bag that fit my needs. What emerged was this: a bag made from 100% quilters grade cotton, quilted and lined with stiff interfacing for stability partnered with a removable insert featuring detachable, freestanding, removal yarn boxes with a grommet on top to keep yarn flowing smoothly and snag-free. An interior pocket held my keys and wallet. Even with everything packed in, I could still find it all — and pack my project in safely.I had a winner.Good Water and Co. bags are designed for busy knitters, knitters who sneak in stitches on trains, planes, and automobiles; for knitters who like to keep things neat and tidy, who love the idea of a knitting bag, but hate the mess; for knitters who need a bag as diverse as their craft. Our yarn boxes were a featured gift in the May 2017 edition of PostStitch, a yarn subscription service for knitters, and delivered to more than 200 subscribers.

I see no reason, when working with the specialty yarns and roving we love, that tools cannot also be beautiful and fun as well as functional. I HATE the store supplied stitch markers (you know those plastic nightmares). They caused gaps in my stitching, scratched my needles and broke at the worst possible moment. A friend challenged me to make something better, so with a lot of trial and error I came up with my current design. Strong, versatile and fun to use they are meant to last a life time of use and still make the you happy every time.

I started dyeing yarn for a KAL I was doing with some friends. I couldn’t find the purple shade I wanted to I bought some undyed yarn and dyed some myself. That was about 10 years ago and I haven’t finished that shawl but I also haven’t stopped dyeing since.
My desire with my dyeing is to bring a sense of whimsy and playfulness to your projects. I want my colorways to inspire the magical fun of your imagination, bringing out that fun-loving child inside.

I create unique, wood shawl/hair pins, buttons, and cabling needles from mostly found hardwood native to my home area of northern Maryland. Every piece is shaped by hand, rubbed with a fine oil to bring out the natural beauty of the wood and buffed to a jewel finish. Some pieces are small and intended to be worn as wooden jewelry for knitted or crocheted clothing.
I sell handspun yarns from wool and wool blends, primarily in lighter weights. My signature yarn is called Pseudo-Self-Striping Sock Yarn, and it’s a fingering weight yarn that will knit into gently transitioning stripes.

Wren House Yarns features individually hand dyed, small batch, artisan yarns. Each skein is dyed with professional acid fast dyes. While some of my hand dyed yarns may look similar, due to the dye process, the yarns will never be exactly the same. Each skein is *individually* dyed for a truly unique knitting experience. I also sell naturally dyed yarns that feature local and exotic colors.
