I’m here to share my mind’s ramblings on knitting, spinning, dyeing and other fiber arts. I’m sure sometimes my thoughts will wander over to other things I make at home.
I teach classes at fiber events and am available to teach private lessons on fiber preparation, spinning, dyeing and knitting. In addition to teaching, I do freelance writing and photography for others in the fiber industry. My first published article, Finishing Face-Off, is in the Spring 2015 issue of Ply Magazine. In May of 2015 I expanded into the world of knit-wear design and hope to add technical editing for knitting patterns in the future.
I have help at home. One very big black cat named Betty Ruth and a floofy white Angora bunny named Winston. In case you’re curious, I do spin the fiber from the bunny. By day (and sometimes evenings and weekends), I’m a business valuation manager at a public accounting firm (translation – I like numbers). The rest of the time I’m making stuff. Sometimes trouble, sometimes a mess, but always fun.
I hope to post once a week. Some posts will be about what projects I’m working on or what I’m making. Some will be about a more general topic such as a technique, review or event. Whatever strikes my fancy!
