About Me

I (Beth) moved to Wisconsin from my native Ohio in 1999. Craftwise, I started scrapbooking in 2001, discovered rubber stamping soon afterwards, started my first quilt in 2003, and learned to knit in 2005. I even learned some wirework and created my own Rosary in 2006! But as a stay at home mom of four kids (born in 1999, 2002, 2004, and 2006) I will probably define myself as a knitter for a while, until I have enough time to quilt again.

Readers of the Yarn Harlot’s blog commentary (Harloonies? Harlotteers?) will know me as Beth in WI.

UPDATE: I don’t “stay at home” any more! Since 2011 I have been a student and/or employee at the University of Wisconsin–Whitewater. I became single again in 2013. I’m still writing and knitting, and learning to play the guitar.

  1. HI Beth! I found you via Yarn Harlot and noticed that you were looking at houses in Fort Atkinson! My parents live in Janesville now and my mother’s family founded Spacesaver cabinets (years and year ago) in Fort! Small world!!


  2. Small world. I’m Janesville born and bred and have lived here in Janesville in our current home for 27 years. The sad part? We’re moving to Wyoming in two weeks. I did my student teaching in Fort Atkinson a million years ago and am very familiar with Spacesaver Corp.

  3. Hi – Please add me to your circulation list for the Yarn Harlot’s appearance on Knitty Gritty. Thank you!

  4. Hi Beth: Loved your blog and your lists, which one of my readers recommended. Thought you might enjoy my website which also has quilting mystery lists and information about me and my Amish Country Mystery books. My main character is a Amish detective who quilts. I’d be happy to put a link to your blog on my site if you would like. Cheers,

  5. I am hoping you may be able to help. I am looking for a piticular style of knitted Packer hat. I wore it almost everyday 12 years ago. And then right before my wedding it disapeared. My wife and I have searched long and hard to find a replacment and have never had any luck. If we could talk about the design, would you be interested in re-creating the hat? I would pay a pretty penny for it. Please email me if interested. Thanks

  6. Hi Beth – I’m a fellow Cheesehead knitter – over by Milwaukee, hey! I grew up a bit closer to your neck of the state. Great blog! Stay warm!

  7. Oh my goodness! I’m so glad I found your pages! I’m just learning to use a spindle, or rather I’m trying to learn to use a spindle.

    Can you say, two left hands? Or lack of coordination? I’ve been knitting forever (Pretty close, I’m old) but thought it’d be cool to learn to spin too. “I think I can, I think I can…..”


  8. Hi Beth, one of my students asked if this was my blog. And I said no, I didn’t know there was a Chocolate Sheep Blog. I’m the Chocolate Sheep Gallery, a felting and fiber arts studio and classroom. I started the Chocolate Sheep as a consignment gallery for fiber art from local artists in 2003 in Carlton, OR. Since then I have changed my business, I still make wearable felted art, teach and do production felting for a centennial sheep grower. I am a chocoholic and a fiber addict and just wanted to say Hi. You can visit my website at Chocolatesheepgallery.com
