So I like to play with strings...
My great-aunties taught me to crochet when I was around 7 years old - most likely to keep me out of trouble while they were babysitting me. I learned to make loooooooooooong chains, and eventually granny squares with squeaky, crunchy acrylic yarn.
When I was around 14, I picked up a pair of knitting needles and thought, "That doesn't seem so hard," and through much trial and error, taught myself, after a fashion, to knit.
30 years later, I found myself in an actual yarn shop staring longingly at a pile of soft, fuzzy angora and mohair yarn in all the colors of the rainbow. I petted hanks of alpaca and mouthwatering hand-painted merino. "Handspun? You mean I could do this myself? To the YouTube!"
A few videos later, I was convinced that yes, I could do this myself. The same yarn shop offered beginner spinning lessons on a drop spindle. I was hooked from the first twist and went home with a large bag of luscious alpaca roving. Two weeks later, I took a class on a Majacraft Pioneer wheel. Two weeks after that, the Majacraft Pioneer was mine, all mine and I'm still spinning on it two years later.
However, I'm a much better spinner than I am a knitter. So, to fund my fiber habit I decided to offer them for sale. Finding Etsy was another dream come true, as I am NOT a coder or financial expert. I love how simple the interface makes it for me to upload the pictures of my yarns and tell you all about them.
Now if I could just learn to be a better photographer!
