Where are we?

Introducing Myself

I am Judy from the Northern Neck.  I have been a compulsive knitter since I attended a week-long camp that coincided with a week-long rain in the mountains of Colorado at the age of 12.  Knitting kept me sane through high school, college, a demanding job, and four children.  When the first of the children were reaching their teen years, I took up spinning.  That was even better:  spinning and knitting gave me lots of opportunities to relax.  My youngest son is now almost 16, and I have been weaving for about 4 years.  

I am now retired and have a lot more time to pursue my hobbies.  I enjoy lace knitting, colorwork, and socks.   I am an active member of the Five Rivers Fiber Guild and the Williamsburg Spinners and Weavers Guild.  We also started an on-line group Spinners and Weavers of the Northern News last fall.  (Hi, Cate.)   It is nice to share information with others.

Thanks for posting Judy. It is so nice to get to know you better. Let us know if there is anything we can do to make your pre and post op period less stressful. With FM and ligament and disc damage I can certainly identify. Hope everything goes exactly as planned or better.

Shucks that is what I get for reading and posting comments to two different entries at the same time...That comment should have been addressed to Teri.

Judy I am so glad to hear from you also . I can't even call myself a beginning spinner yet but I do have a wheel (Ashford Traveler)I bought from Diana last summer and finally picked up from her last fall at the Montpelier Fiber Fest....I also got my first furry fiber factory at the same time. She got a companion abouththe same time we set up our blog. I should be trimming them soon. Thankfully I didn't before this cold snap.
