I’ve always been a spinner of tales. Sometimes, I need something to do with my hands and my mind while I’m working on a story.
The usually thing is to play Spider or other game of solitare. However, after 4 novels, I’m utterly bored with card games. So I started crocheting about the same time I started working on ‘The Emissary.’
The trouble is that there really isn’t a lot of choice in yarn out there.
I wanted a red, white and blue yarn or a green and white yarn. Niether of which I was able to find.
And the selection of dark natural colors was also limited. I couldn’t find what I wanted at a price I could afford.
I started with a drop spindle kit from Amazon. Which got me looking for a local teacher. When I found one, I started looking for some local with wool.
I found that, too.
Then I found a Llama rescue organization.
It’s only taken a couple of weeks to get in this deep. Luckily I had sense enough to say no to the lovely person who offered me 2 fiber llamas.
It doesn’t take very long to get in over your head these days. Just type in a question on Google.
The llamas arrive in May.
