For our May Meeting, OPK is excited to present Krysten Lewelling, Creator of Gherkin’s Bucket! Krysten (a.k.a. Gherkin, there’s a story there!) Lewelling has been a craftoriented person all her life, and especially fond of colorplay. She has been dyeing yarn and fiber since 2008, and is an avid knitter, crocheter, spinner, designer, and sometimes weaver.
Krysten is an indie-dyer from Mesa. She created Gherkin’s Bucket in 2008 and specializes in high-quality hand dyed yarn and fiber, handspun yarns, and patterns for knit and crochet items. Her yarns range from lace to bulky weight and colorways are known by intriguing names like You Can Feel It All Over, Red Out Loud, and Fine Looking Horse. She will talk about her personal indie dyer story along with her general dye processes and new studio. She is bringing a selection of “goodies” to show us.
