I'm a graphic designer by trade specializing in newsletter & ad layout. But I just retired last November, and am enjoying every minute of it spinning, knitting and playing with wool.
Seems I've been knitting most of my life - at least since I was 10 or so. I love fiber, especially fiber that doesn't squeak - like acrylic, when you use it. So I am liking all the nice wools that are now out.
I have been spinning my own wool for about 5 years now and this summer I have been outdoors spinning on my front porch with my dog Andy usually at my feet. Hope it doesn't get cold too soon.
