In the beginning...
I'm Cindy. Louann and I met in May through our husbands who worked together at the time. We were immediately best friends - just like twins! We were both knitters, cross stitchers, crocheters, scrapbookers and quilters!
We have been through some hard times together already. We started a little yarn dyeing habit that has led us to open an Etsy shop to sell off some excess!
Our latest dyeing adventure was for an upcoming Goddess Knits Mystery Shawl Knit a Long - see www.goddessknits.com
See the colors... Sienna, Nomad, and Olive on our etsy site www.wintermountainfibers.etsy.com
Since we seem to amuse others as well as ourselves, we decided to blog together. Please join in our chatter by leaving comments.
Today we met at Barnes and Noble for Cafe Mochas and to sit and knit. We discovered 2 books we must have, Knitting Under the Sun and The Joy of Sox. We went on a yarn and knitting book diet in August, so we didn't purchase. We had a binge of "fibery goodness" at the Southeast Animal Fiber Fair in October. We have been "trying" to avoid spending anything other than Christmas and Birthday money until we go to our next festival - The Smokey Mountain Fiber Fair in Townsend, TN in March. Miss Babs led me astray, and Louann was tempted by Knit Picks, but we are doing pretty well for us.
