Once I found I liked it I tried knitting techniques that were new to me and in the process found a whole world of fibery fun out there. Forget just knitting an object, I could spin my own yarn then knit with it. Then I found Etsy and all the lovely hand dyed yarn. And I was hooked. So here I am mired down in yarn, fiber, and dye and loving every minute of it.
