The YarnGeek helped me cross over to the "dark side" ...
When I mentioned I wanted to crochet a hat like my daughter's friend crocheted for her, the YarnGeek generously offered to meet with me at our LYS. This is serious fun. I have wanted to build my crocheting skills for a while now, and she gave me the boost I needed.
I am spinning Gulf Coast wool. Gulf Coast is one of the oldest breeds of sheep in North America. The brown and orange are Gulf Coast wool and the maroon is a mohair blend, all from Running Moon Farm. (colors are a little washed out due to the flash - it is a dark day here)
Spinning, crocheting, knitting... too bad I need to work.
