Santa Claus brought me a child's knitting box when I was 5. My grandmother taught me how to knit and I have been knitting ever since. Over the years I have tackled just about every project imaginable but I am still learning. It amazes me how creative knitter have become and the new methods used. My latest project is learning to spin wool into yarn and next to creatively put together custom yarns. Here in Minnesota Alpacas farmers have sprung up all over and fleece from individual Alpacas can be purchased directly from the farm where the Alpaca lives. Love this site and all the wonderful information you ladies provide--thank you.
