How fiber keeps me regular

First I got hooked - learned to crochet while waiting and then recovering from back surgery. Then I begged my husband for over a year to teach me how to knit - he wanted to keep those mysteries all to himself. In 2011, I picked up a spindle after convincing a friend she should pick up the hobby. A wheel followed a year later. But truly, cotton spinning on a bead spindle or tahkli is my greatest love, but I have a hard time finding the type of spindles I want and the fiber blends I'm interested in. Thus hipstrings was born, a source for unique fiber, spindles and other items to enhance the craft of all fiber enthusiasts.
