I'm here because the art of crafting ones vision with a piece of string is so very empowering to me. Whenever I'm working on a project, my kids ask, "Is that for me?", because they know that know that wearing a finished garment is in some way like walking around wearing my love. I've been crocheting for about 15 years and learned to knit about one year ago. I'm trying to pick up spinning and yarn dyeing as well so I'm very excited. I'm so into this that I haven't had any lulls in my hobby for almost 2 1/2 years now. I'm glad to be here and hope to learn a lot from you all.
