Hello – and welcome to the wonderful world of a fiber addict!
My name is Tammy, and I’m a self-proclaimed fiber addict (although anyone who knows me, would COMPLETELY agree). Little did I know when I saw a woman in small town, Lincoln, MT a few years ago spinning on her spinning wheel, that I would become so passionate about wool, fiber, sheep and yarn? I mean I’ve always liked sheep, and I’ve been crocheting since I was 8, but passionate is not a word I would have used to describe it… until now!
Now, I have tons of yarn, attend shearings all over the state of Montana, purchase fleeces, send them for processing and anxiously anticipate their return so I can begin spinning them into more lovely yarn. I’m known to hide a few fleeces here and there (more on THAT part of my addiction later) and have recently begun spinning for Alpacas of Montana in trade for some of the most wonderful Alpaca fiber I’ve ever touched.
I’m just getting started and will have stories, tips, advice, pictures, and patterns shortly. Until then, I know there are more of you like me out there – so speak up – you’re not alone! I’d love to hear from you and about your experiences with sheep, fiber, spinning, dying, crocheting, and knitting, as well as any questions you may have for me. I’m looking forward to sharing with you and getting to know you!
