Adventures in knitting and sewing.
Oncology nurse by day with a passion to play in my yarn room and to share stories. Proprietor of the cutest little yarn shop, Knit Picky Yarns, from 2006-2012. (I may be a little biased) Six great years of yarn play. It was great fun meeting new friends & fellow knitters.

Just look....another wonderful way to wear silk!
I wanted to share pictures from our spinning workshop with Linda Witt of Louet. On Saturday, January 31st, our intimate group laughed together and played with our wheels. It was relaxing and we created some wild, chunky yarns. Susan has already combined each of her spun samples to create a beautiful artsy scarf (picture to come soon)!
Oh, yuk....I have a double chin when I spin. Gotta work on my technique.
Is this a great smile or what!!??!!
So for now, my spinning motto is this: why stress and strive for complete yarn perfection when you can create funky, one of a kind fibers!
Thanks, Linda, for teaching us new techniques, terms and in depth knowledge of the fibers we used.
