Well, combining the fact that I'm working during the day with the fact that my office park has the best filtered natural light means that most of these photos were taken while crawling about at the edge of my parking lot on "fiber breaks". :) I'm known as CYG in my building (Crazy Yarn Girl).

My adventures as CYG and taking fiber into the wild (Elizabeth Zimmermann style) with the family are chronicled in my blog:
