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.
