About

Production Over Consumption

I’ve been doing fiber-y things since I was very young in one form or another (needlepoint, macrame, cross stitch, etc), but didn’t get into knitting in a big way until I discovered continental knitting 20-odd years ago.

I’ve been spinning for about 19 years, and being the process-oriented person that I am, I’m really a spinner looking for ways to make use of her yarn. I have a Schacht Matchless ST spinning wheel, A Lendrum DT with the Very Fast Flyer, and a Baby Wolf loom, which I have recently been able to start weaving on again!

I currently work at home - a necessity due to the lack of local appropriate childcare for my 14-year-old daughter, who has autism. I try to keep the family solvent by making things like the yarn and dyed top in this shop, and very nice silver jewelry in my other shop, http://www.DaisyCatJewelry.etsy.com, and selling as much of it as I can.
