The real estate business around here isn't so great, so I've decided to put my license on hold for now. I'm so excited to be starting out on a new venture! My dream since I learned how to knit at age 5 was to have sheep and go through the whole process of shearing, cleaning, spinning, dyeing, designing, and finally knitting a garment. I'm starting small (2 babydolls - and lambs on the way), but I've been having a wonderful time dyeing yarn, designing (mostly hats) and knitting. I've also now started offering knitting classes, and signed up for a farmer's market in the spring. What a change in perspective one gets when focused on creating instead of worrying about making money. I guess it's the old hippie in me... :-) ---- Thank God, she's still there!

Anywayyyy - I'm going to try to post some of my stuff. Hope you enjoy!!
