Hi! I'm Katey. I'm a 30-something, crafter, traveler, wannabe cartographer, beer lover, and maker of ridiculous recipes. I'm originally from North Carolina, have spent much of my adult life in Grand Canyon National Park, and just recently relocated to Denver, CO.

I started crocheting in high school, but I've always loved crafting of all persuasions. Sewing, painting, origami, photography, gift wrapping, etc -- I love it all.

The Worsted really began in the winter of '14/'15, when I was working at a remote gift shop in the Grand Canyon. Business was incredibly slow and we had plenty of time to entertain ourselves throughout the day. So I began bringing crochet projects to work, and soon enough, friends started asking me to make them different things. And thus, The Worsted was born.

I'm not terribly systematic with my creative process -- I generally make things that I would want and would wear. I buy yarn based on what inspires me, particularly what I see out the window as I drive through the mountains and the foothills.

My passion is custom orders -- I really love being able to give customers exactly what they've been dreaming of!
