In 2004, I left a job in academia to become a fiber artist and to return to my home state of Michigan.


Now I live in lovely Northwestern Lower Michigan where I create handspun yarns, design knitted items, teach spinning & knitting, and write about spinning & knitting.




Why "Stone Sock"?

My father had a cottage on Silver Lake near Traverse City, Michigan.  When we were kids, my sister, Meg, and I spent many hours collecting stones and rocks along the lake shore.  As adults, we are still avid rock hounds.  On one visit to the cottage in 2003, Meg was examining a pile of stones and exclaimed, "Hey, Amy...Look!"  Then she showed me a stone that looked like a foot wearing a sock.  The name of my fiber business was born in that moment!  The stone in question is in the picture above, along with a ceramic sheep that my sister also gave me.
