Please join us in welcoming Britt-Marie Brehmer to our Sales Team, for the Northern California territory and Nevada.
In Sweden, where I was born, knitting and sewing was part of the weekly curriculum in 3rd grade. That’s where it all started for me. It has been a joyful hobby throughout my life, and after years of working with my husband in our Software Company, and children all grown up, I decided to take my love for textiles to the next level. I’m thrilled to be part of the Plymouth Team, and surround myself with people that share my passion. Weaving, cooking, baking and gardening also have a place in my heart.
You can find Britt-Marie on Ravelry.
Here are some of her most recent projects:
Baby Alpaca Aire:
Baby Alpaca Magna:
We are happy to welcome you to the Plymouth Yarn family and wish you much success in your territory!

Now that we have had a few nights in the 50′s, it makes me stop and think about all 4 of my baby girls (granddaughters) and their need for warmth and Nonnie lovin’! (This little one isn’t mine, but feels similar when I get to hold her!).
A few years ago, (actually probably 10!) I took a class from Nicky Epstein in Encinitas CA at Common Threads. She was teaching edgings from her Knitting Over the Edge book. Well, the simplicity and the brilliance of the corkscrew tassel has followed me thru the years.
Hence the cute “pompom” corkscrew tassels for this cute hat. It is shown here on our little model, Gianna. She is the granddaughter of one of our excellent test knitters. Watch her grow up with us. She is a dream baby to work with as well. Always in a good mood and very tolerant of the multiple wardrobe changes!
Back to the hat! It is made with a new yarn that Plymouth is showing for this season. It is called Baby Beenz. Our Jelli Beenz has been such a success over the years that we came to the conclusion we need Baby colors!!! And here it is! We love the fiber content’s durability wash after wash after wash.
Feel free to ask for it at your LYS and print off this free pattern. Trust me, you will make it over and over again as well as the corkscrew tassel!!!
