Some of you already know Kathryn Olson, our Travel Turtle 2022 host for the month of June, with her very creative, unconventional, colorful projects of many fiber crafts. But not everybody knows that last year she moved to North Pole, Alaska!
Meet Kathryn, who lives with her daughter’s family, and a dog Pua, eight cats, and two birds, Mellow and Little Foot. When asked, Kathryn described herself as “I do yarn”, which includes crocheting, knitting, tatting, weaving and pretty much anything that involves yarn.
Her favorite projects are shawls and dolls. For TT22’s stay Kathryn hopes to explore the surrounding fiber world and maybe make a box turtle.
Charlene is a bit jealous that TT22 will see Alaska, but – and I quote Charlene – “I’m looking forward to hopefully see many pictures of the state where the sun in the summer doesn’t go down, and where they have rather unusual wool from cows …”
You are invited to follow TT22’s and Kathryn’s adventures in North Pole on Instagram account @kathryn1160.

Love the comment ” I do yarn!” It pretty well describes me.
Yes! I love that phrase!
My mom is pretty awesome! Glad she will get to host your loom 🙂
What a sweet comment! But I’d like to tell you … your photography is pretty awesome, too!
Congratulations on hosting TT22! I know you will have lots of fun making hexagons. And I bet TT22 would love a visit to Santa’s Workshop. Maybe he can sit on the cool sleigh in the middle of the store?
