Hello, and welcome! My name is Christa, and I'm the indie yarn dyer (and pattern designer) behind The Frosted Stitch. Well, myself AND Robbie, AKA Mr. Stitch (who started dyeing last year on occasion, but that's a story for later).
ANYWAYS. I’m a pirate-obsessed, sci-fi loving cat mom who LIVES for the snow, subsides on chocolate and swears a LOT. I love to knit, crochet, dye, read, game and bake.
I learned to crochet in late 2017, and by August of 2019 I was a published crochet pattern designer. I also began my dyeing journey that same fall. September of 2022 marked the biggest milestone for TFS yet - It has now become my full-time job. We are in the process of building a studio in our home, as I am outgrowing our kitchen!
I have an incredibly supportive team of individuals behind me. First and foremost, my husband Robbie. He is my cheerleader, my promoter, my sounding board, my extra hands, my end-weaver, my cake bitch and the love of my life. He's also a dyer - 2022 marked the beginning of "Mr. Stitch" and his various dyeing adventures ("Drive-In" and now "Wrecking Yard"). Needless to say, this entire journey would have ended just as fast as it began if not for him. I am also blessed with a group of close friends and family who have made it their mission to see me succeed. I am indeed a lucky woman.
This maker journey has been an incredible road for me. I have enjoyed every minute - every high, every low. Each experience has taught me something valuable and without them I wouldn’t be where I am now! The community has been amazingly kind, supportive, and encouraging. I owe my success to all of you. Thank you for being a part of my journey!
