Sabbatical is over: A Time to Share

Ready

Maybe you have been wondering where I have been this past year. After writing online for Examiner for 7 years as the “Knitting Examiner” about all things fiber, it was time to take a sabbatical. I recommend it highly. I took classes, lectures, read, knit, crocheted, wove, spun, volunteered, experimented, dyed…immersed myself in fiber and learning. Now, I am ready to pass it on to you in my revamped website.

Set

By no means have I become an expert in any field. What I have always known and enjoyed about fiber is there is always more to learn. If you have been following me in the past, you can expect the same and much more. There will be book reviews, tips, photos, fiber news from around the world, techniques, what’s hot: a quick note (tapestry weaving, knee-length cardigans in autumn’s new color grenadine red, woven wall fiber art, knit/crochet/woven ponchos)…

Go

Now is the perfect time to go through your yarn, fiber, textiles, books, tools etc., organize, donate and frog (rip it, rip it) the projects you will never complete. If you don’t have a fiber studio and always wanted one, maybe take an unused closet and transform it into your space. Have a fiber party, your cast offs are someone else’s treasures and vice versa.
