A New Beginning

I love yarn! I love natural fiber! I love cotton and wool and rayon and linen and all natural fabrics!

I've been knitting since I was 21 years old. I started knitting for 2 reasons:

My mom told me I could never learn becasue I was left handed. (She obviously never did two color knitting!)
When I was a little girl my cousin in Scotland sent me a beautiful handknit sweater of wonderful golden yellow wool. It had cables and I loved it! And the first thing my mom did was throw it in the washer and dryer! I never got to wear it.

So now I knit my own beautiful cabled wool sweaters.

I have to knit every day. I just have to!
I have learned to love felting! I make some pretty awesome stuff by shrinking things I have knit.

here's a couple of examples:
