Well, about me…
I am a stay at home mom of four with too many pets, too many ideas, too many plans, too much to do, and not enough time!
I love to create things and I feel most at home when I am surrounded by a crafty mess and plenty of supplies. I’ve quilted, sewn clothes, crocheted, knitted, embroidered, cross-stitched, done macrame (my very first craft – I learned from my mom when I was five years old), rug hooked both the old fashioned way (pulling loops up through canvass) and the cut yarn way. I am probably missing something in this list, lol, but I can’t think of it offhand. I would someday like to try tatting…if my eyes hold out that long!
My current passion is knitting and I try to knit every day.
My newest passion is spinning! I started with a drop spindle and now have a Kromski Minstrel. I suspect I am becoming a fiber addict since I feel the need to collect a tub of it 🙂
I like to work from patterns because it saves me much thought. Lately I’ve been having fun allowing myself some freedom to ‘just knit’ and let the pattern find itself. I’m not brave enough to try this with anything more complex than mittens/gloves/hats/scarfs/socks yet but the ‘sweater I designed myself’ is something I aspire to.
I love reading other peoples blogs and really really love learning new techniques. Learning is one of my favorite things!
