Jo Anne's Profile
I am a city girl with a fibery spirit! I live in the City of Knoxville and I have been a knitter and crocheter since I was a child. I love to hand knit accessories such as fingerless mitts, socks, hats, scarfs, bags, doggie sweaters, head bands and baby clothes using commercial or handspun yarn. When I added spinning to my repertoire, I began to learn about fibers, fiber prep, and fiber dynamics. I really began to appreciate knowing what my handspun yarn was made of, the distinct characteristics of the fiber I was working with, and supporting local shepherds of artisan breeds of sheep.
I love to make things that have beautiful colors, using natural fibers, and are soft to the touch. There is just something about watching the magic of a roving being handspun and yarn being knitted. It's good for the soul.
