Colorful Knitted Print


In 2021, The Runaway Knitter was created because I decided to run away from owning a knit shop and travel to wherever I can to see the beauty of the U.S. and the beauty of anyone that sells, dyes or creates with fiber, and blog about it! 

I am inviting you on the journey of a lifetime! 

Follow me and who knows what stories I will tell you, where I will end up or what knit shop or  Indie Dyer we will discover together... and hopefully they will let me pester the heck out of them to learn all I can to pass on to you!

Those of you that already know me, know how passionate I am about this industry! 

Along the way, I plan on creating more designs with fibers I find and keeping you informed of what is going on back home in Sauk City, WI at Flaxen Fleece, LLC., the home of the original DMarie Knit and Fiber, LLC, where the dream began and continues on...
