A Bit of an Introduction

Welcome to my blog. I'm a homeschooling mom and busy wife who has a serious fiber habit. I love to spin and knit, and always have something going on the wheels, drop spindles, and knitting needles. Actually, I always have many somethings going, so no matter what my mood or circumstance, I'm prepared. I'm also addicted to books as well as fiber, and if anyone out there can tell me how to knit and read at the same time, I'd like to hear about it.

Writing is also another interest of mine. I've blogged in the past, but find that since I live in the boonies and have dial-up, it's challenging just to get through all of my e-mail, let alone keeping a blog updated and getting pictures on it. The good news is, my sister actually lives in a town, and I can load pictures from her high speed computer, so I'm hoping to be a bit more successful. I've also started writing at www.helium.com and will hopefully be able to figure out how to link to my articles.

I got my Ravelry invite in the mail the other day, and am working on getting that set up. For those of you not familiar with it (it's still in beta phase), www.ravelry.com is a community for knitters and crocheters. From what I've seen so far it looks great, so get your name in now for an invite, because there's quite a waiting list.
