Located in Nashville, Tennessee, Knitting Notions is a family-owned and operated business led by artisan Catherine Harrison. Knitting Notions opened in 2005 with its first product, handmade Yarn Swifts, and they now produce a large line of handmade fiber tools for knitters, crocheters, weavers, and spinners. In the same year, Catherine began hand-dyeing her line of merino yarns. Best known for her large range of semi-solids and coordinating hand-paints, Catherine’s favorite colors are earthy and reflective of colors found in nature. Her line focuses on finer gauge yarns ranging from lace to sport.
