Hello Yarn Lovers!

I’m Delisa AKA Dr. FrankenSkein (I totally just made that up), the mad creator behind Apocalypse Friday LLC. Apocalypse Friday was a whim, a leap and a bit of a whirlwind.

I have been knitting and crocheting for a very large chunk of my life.

Learning to dye was a natural next step. Who wouldn’t love plotting, scheming, mixing colors like a mad scientist or wicked witch?

I didn’t want a yarn biz that looked like all there other yarn bizes out there. I wanted a place where Morticia Addams would be thrilled to shop, something that reflected my love of horror, geekery, goth-ish tendencies, and weirdness.

I want my customers to knit or crochet accessories as black as their souls and delicious as the blood pumping in their veins.  Hand dyed yarns are squishy bits of self care that will warm the coldest of hearts.

I hope you’ll love them as much as I do.

When I’m not dyeing, knitting or crocheting, I’m painting, writing, and pretending to be a photographer. I live in the beautiful mountains of northern Idaho with my family. I love reading, Doctor Who, Firefly, and huckleberries. I dream of a day when I have a studio where I can make all the things.

I’m not currently dyeing yarns, but I’m knitting and crocheting as much as I can and hope to get back to dyeing in the future.
