Spin, knit, weave…I LOVE these areas, for a multitude of reasons. One of the main drivers is that I am fascinated with things that go to the root of who we are–things or ideas that existed before the world of modern technology. Instead of being pastimes, these were things needed for our very survival.
I love to blog, and I love to make stuff. I decided last year that everything I sell on my Etsy site will be used to support a non profit organization in Peru called Awamaki. I recoup my cost of supplies, but the rest of the profits are donated to them–I really believe in the work they are doing and the positive impact they are making in that area.
I do have a day job, so my escapades are limited to my time off. I’ve just learned to make the most of that, and it’s a good balance!
I’ve recently gotten into starting with the fleece to get to the yarn to get to the finished product, and it’s quite a journey…but I LOVE it! Stay tuned for future adventures!
