First off, many thanks to Donna for the award!
Donna and her husband Tom have a great little farm down the road a bit from us. It’s amazing what all they’ve got going there- especially since they both have day jobs. And I’m really excited to be getting 3 little wethers from them this summer.
Now, I don’t know if I’m nearly as versatile as she is- I’ve been pretty much singlemindedly pursuing my dream of having sheep for the last few years, but I do like variety in my wool, so maybe that counts for something 🙂
In response to receiving this award I’m supposed to provide a little background on myself, so here goes:
Born in Iowa
Grew up in the village of West Dundee, Illinois in the days before it was a desirable suburb of Chicago.
I learned to knit about 6 years ago. And in some ways that really started this chapter in my life.
For me it was a gateway hobby.
It led to spinning, wool processing, and moving to the boonies so that I could have sheep.
And I feel like I’ve finally found my calling.
