My mother taught me to knit when I was a little girl. Like most children, I would pick it up now and again but never really thought too much about it. A little gift was made here and there and many scarves were started and never finished.
As a young adult preparing to be a mother, I decided to pick it up again to keep my hands busy and my anxiety down. I’ve not put it down since. Over the last 10 years I’ve knitted everything from baby clothes and complicated sweaters to blankets and hats. I’ve even published knitting patterns.
In 2007 I opened an online store, Tree Frog Knits, where I sold knitted wool pants, hats, and handpainted yarns. With a move and a third baby boy, I closed my online shop in 2011 and continued to independently knit for customers, friends, and family.
Now that my family has moved to our little farm, Fox Run, my supportive husband has helped me expand my love for wool to raising my own sheep and learning how to spin my own fiber. We currently raise Leicester Longwool sheep. In the spring we will be having our first lambs. Longwools are an amazing breed and bring our family lots of joy. They will be shorn in the spring and I will have homegrown fleece and yarn available by the fall.
I love to knit and am happy to teach anyone who would like to learn how! My rate is $15 an hour. I can always supply materials as well. Also services, supplies, and patterns can be found on my Etsy Shop – Fox Run Fibers (soon to be updated) and on my Ravelry page. If you are in 4H or have a 4H’er and are in Fiber Arts as a project, lessons are free and I’m happy to host here at our home and farm.
