Shelly Dockins Kocan

I knit because somewhere along the way I realized I can't stop. I dye yarn for my company Snow Capped Yarns, because I sometimes lose sleep thinking about color. I lead a group of passionate high school knitters, affectionately called the Secret Sweater Society, slowly converting them into fiberphiles. I travel in search of knitting goodness worldwide; next destination...Iceland.

I blog on South Of Ultima Thule, a place to share my voice and vision while documenting our ordinary adventures in this extraordinary landscape of Coastal Alaska.

I hope to connect, inspire and build strength together through honesty and vulnerability.
