Blogging is not my strong suit.

I just really don't think I have much to say.  I really want to chronicle my journey, but I struggle with content.
I have decided that fiber arts are the way I need to go.  It is visceral.  I NEED to spin and knit.  I NEED the feel of the natural fiber slipping through my fingers.  With every fiber of my being, I NEED fiber.
Looking at pictures of fiber and yarn gets my creativity going.  I pick patterns and then decide how to modify them to best fit my needs.
I would love to design in the future, but I feel I need more time with the fiber.  Time to learn the ways each fiber is different, how they behave, and what works with what patterns.
I also want to dye fiber and yarn.  I don't think I have an eye for color or how the dyed fiber will look spun or the yarn knit.
For now knitting and spinning will feed my soul.

A few of my spinning successes.  You can find more detail at Ravelry under my rav name msbusyneedles
