Biography

I'm a fourth generation native of Colorado and my idea of a Rocky Mountain high is knitting at 14,000 feet (the "essentials" in my backpack include yarn and needles--here we are on the summit of Pikes Peak).

My kids are all of the four-legged variety. Humphrey, Betty and Gracie are the purling pups -- Oscar, Hudi, Sheva, Sherman and Thelma are the knitty cats. All have distinct opinions about what's happening on my needles - and frequently make their own contributions.

My mom taught me to knit and crochet when I was about 10, so I've been at this for a while. I discovered spinning a few years ago and remain a weaver wannabe. I've also dabbled some in hand dyeing.

Since I travel so much in my work, yarn and needles are with me everywhere I go. So, many of my ramblings here about knitting...or whatever...will be from the roads around the states of the big western mountains and southwest.

It's all a great adventure!
