About Me


“Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves” -James Matthew Barrie

My name is Dani and this blog is about my knitting, my dyeing and a little bit about my life.

I currently live in Boulder, Colorado with my husband Scott and our two kitties, Soma and Kali. We juuust moved from Boston, Massachusetts, where this all began! I have a B.S. and a Master’s degree in environmental science, but found that the life of a fiber artist suits me best. I currently own and operate Sunshine Yarns, a lil’ yarn company that specializes in handpainted sock and laceweight yarns. Most of the time I can be found in the kitchen dyeing, or at my favorite post office shipping out packages.

I love to spend alot of my time outdoors, especially in the warmer months. I cycle, run, swim and hike and am very happy, to once again, have the mountains at my reach. We are grilling machines in the summer and love to eat lots of healthy foods. I have recently given up eating most meats, but can’t seem to shake fish. Two of my most favorite things in the world are chocolate and sushi.

I am inspired by the natural world around me and find that I am happiest when exploring new places. Some of our most recent trips have taken us to Alaska, Belize, Guatamala and Ireland. I spent time doing research in the Turks and Caicos, where I was able to snorkel to my hearts content.

I try to live my life in a happy way. I love my friends, my family, my work and my craft.
