About Me

All my life I have been drawn to and dabbled in creative pursuits.  My aunt taught me how to crochet at around age 13 and ever since, I’ve been hooked on yarn (no pun intended).  Several years ago, when knitting started becoming all the rage, I picked up two needles, a skein of yarn, and an instruction book.  After several false starts and frustrations, it all began to click.

Just like with crochet, I am not afraid to tackle projects that may seem to be above my skill level.  It’s the way I learn and improve.  A few years ago, one of my favorite bloggers, Mac, started spinning her own yarn.  Somehow, I knew that was the next step I had to take.  Starting with a spindle and roving from Adrian at Hello Yarn, I was soon spinning my own yarn. Is wasn’t long before I started keeping an eye on spinning wheel auctions on eBay.  I got a great deal on an Ashford that I named “Lousie”.  She hasn’t failed me yet, and I often can’t wait to sit down and create yarn out of fluff.

Of course the next logical thing to do was start dying my own wool to spin.

Luckily for me, I found a fiber arts studio nearby that sells roving, and I can often get several pounds at a time, depending on the status of my pocketbook.

This blog is a place for me to share my projects, finished and otherwise, and a place to gather ideas from all the wonderfully creative people out in the fiber universe.

Occasionally, I will have items for sale, and they can be purchased through my Etsy shop:  Fiber Madness
