Jennifer's Profile

About

My name is Jennifer, and I am a scientist and teacher by day, and a compulsive knitter by night. I grew up in Southern Maryland surrounded by tobacco fields, left all that behind to pursue a marine biology degree at Eckerd College, and have been bopping around the country ever since.

When I am not studying municipal solid waste and landfills, my current research topic of choice for my masters degree in Environmental Science and Policy at USF St Pete, I am buried under mountains of yarn in my living room.

I worm my way out occasionally, knitting needles in hand, only to dive into another mountain of luxurious fibers and see what sort of inspiration hits me this time. I prefer to seek out original and unique wool yarns that are handspun and handdyed by other artisans, that way no two of my creations are ever the same. I also buy yarns that are rescued or reclaimed from old sweaters, and knit up new things to give the yarn a new life.

I also sew, iWunderSews.etsy.com and I do vintage, iWunderVintage.etsy.com
