About danigirlknits

Hello, I have always liked hobbies and when I was younger I did a little crocheting (but I hate it) and cross stitch. I love to make jewelry but that did not travel well. So my addition to knitting all started with one class. In this one class I learned how to knit a felted purse and was hooked. I then had the desire to knit socks, from that come hats, scarf and any other project that was portable. Well a couple of years after the first knitting class came my desire to weave and now I have moved up to spinning with a drop spindle. I have come to the conclusion that I am a addict when it comes to all thing to do with roving and yarn. I have two beautiful children, two dogs and two cats.
