Freia Friday 11-6-15

2015-09-24 09.53.04I can’t believe it’s already been 9 1/2 years since I first picked her up and brought her home.

An 8 week old pup, I named her Freia after the Norse goddess of Love and War. Freia is a Chesapeake Bay Retriever, a breed known for their loyalty and protectiveness. The name is a perfect fit for her. When I branched out from Knitwhits to begin dyeing yarn, naming this new company Freia Fine Handpaints was my way of honoring her. The yarn company has proven to be as big a part of my life as she is.
