Following my arrow.

I taught myself to knit when I was 20. My first project was a scarf. I was successful. Then I decided I was going to make socks!! How cool would that be! Never mind that I had never knit anything that wasn't a rectangle. I fell in love!! Not with socks them selves but the yarn. Wild crazy colors! I loved watching them pile on top of one another. I love watching stripes form. I would finish the first sock and be thrilled. The second sock was a different story. I was ready for something new. So I would start a new one with some exciting new yarn.

Not long after my one sock wonder days I discover spinning and from there dying. I enjoy spinning painted rovings. I watch the colors flow then blend and twist together in their rhythmic, sleepy way. It is the same when knitting a hand spun yarn from a painted roving.

When I am not up to my elbows in dye I you can find me giving riding lessons on Rocky Mountain Horses, taking hikes through the hills of Kentucky, or just hanging out with my husband Charlie, my daughter Ruby, our 10 chickens, 1 dog Hank, and our numerous cats!
