bits & bobs :: maria of ninja chickens
do you know my friend maria? if you're a knitter, chances are good that you've come across her beautiful work before. her list of adjectives is long and impressive: spinner, dyer, knitwear designer, knitter, homeschooler, homesteader, herbalist, podcast host, business owner... she's kinda awesome.
i'm thrilled that she agreed to dye my first batch of project bags for me AND they turned out amazing. be sure to check out her website and visit her on ravelry and insta, and tell her i sent you. i think you two are really going to hit it off.
