I taught myself to knit in 2005, crochet in 2006 and spin in 2010. It seems I have a habit of developing hobbies.
Fiber truly is a passion. I've worked at a wool mill, done knitting for a farmers market and currently work at a yarn shop. And like everyone else, I'm working on a book. But I figure anyone can start a book, the only thing that matters is that I finish mine.
