Welcome to the blog! Thanks for stopping by.
My name is Jenn and I’m addicted to all things fiber. I started knitting around 2008 and I haven’t stopped yet. Although it really goes back much further than that. Growing up “making things” was my favorite activity and I sort of learned to knit back then. But I really re-learned with the help of Laura at Creative Fibers in Windsor, CT back in 2008. (Awesome local yarn shop, by the way.)
Now I live in Maine and I continue to expand on my knitting skills, but I’m also learning to spin and dye wool too. I’m planning to start designing patterns, and who knows where that will lead. I created this blog to take you on my fibery journey with me.
I love listening to podcasts and reading about fiber-related stuff, so I’ll be sharing some of my favorites here.
I’ll also share the projects that I’m working on and talk about what I’ve learned in the process. If you want a sneak peak, and you are on Ravelry, you can check out my current stuff. My name is FlecksOfFiber. If you aren’t on Ravelry.com and you are a knitter, spinner, or crocheter what are you waiting for? It is the online community for all things fiber.
My latest venture is the quest to become a Master Knitter. Yes, that is a thing. It is a fairly in-depth process through The Knitting Guild of America. I’ll take you through my challenges and victories on that journey.
I can’t wait to get started! Stop by again soon. Tomorrow I’ll talk about my Tour de Fleece progress!
