What Inspires You?


Collecting skills you truly enjoy is a lifelong adventure.

My love for crochet led me to a love for yarn.

This led me to pursue the process yarn goes through from sheep to skein.

I took a class.

I bought a drop spindle.

I bought cheap Lincoln wool.

I bought a book on hand dyeing.

I made yarn.

My family bought me several giant bags of alpaca.

I bought a small drum carder.

I made batts of fiber from which I spun yarn with my drop spindle.

I feel deeply connected with every spinner in history when I spin wool into yarn. 

Why did this process occur? Because my mother taught me how to hold a crochet hook 25 years ago.

You never know where one step will take you. So learn something new today.

Be so excited about something that people are baffled.

Be well dear readers. Crochet often. Create always!

  1. Like you I was also interested in learning more than the crocheting I watched my mother doing when I was very young. I also spin,weave, sew, and knit. Love it! their is nothing more relaxing.
