L is for Love of ...

(Fiber ready to spin.)

The word Love is typically used to describe an strong affectionate emotion related to living things.

I want to share a different kind of Love.

(Finished sweater made for me.)

Love of all things fiber, knitting, weaving, spinning!


(Rigid Hettle Looms)

I see you getting ready to click that "next" button.

(Two hand woven scarves.)

Not a topic that tickles your fancy?
Not an interest that holds your attention?
Not an activity that seems worthwhile?

(Samples of just a few of my knitting needles. Some of my grandmothers are in this picture.)

Shame on you for having such a closed mind!

(Poncho for my daughter.)

Just look at these lovely pictures of my passion, my love ...

How can you click the "next" button and just move on
without seeing this through to the end?

(A finished knitted blanket created for my niece - the first person to ask for anything made by me.
Thank you, Robin.)

This activity might not be for you,
but you can't help but admire the colors, the product, the skill, the tools,
the beauty of this craft.

(Hand looms by Hazel Rose Looms.)

Thank you for sticking to the end to see the things I love!

(One section of one shelf of knitting, weaving, crocheting reference books.)


  1. Yeah, I wish I could create like that, but my creation is reserved for fiction.

  4. Wow, you ARE a knitter, girl! What beautiful creations!

  5. Great photos of your work! As you know, I do share your "Love of all things fiber, knitting, weaving, spinning!" Have a great day!

  6. I loved every picture - thank you so much for getting me started on knitting which ended up with my love of not only knitting but weaving and spinning!
