About Me

Illinois, United States
I am a band director at five private schools in Kankakee. Music is a big part of my life, but knitting and crafting are right up there too. I own a ridiculous stash of yarn, which I am slowly using... and replacing with better yarn... I tend to knit and crochet a lot, in class, out of class, while watching tv, while driving, pretty much constantly. I have been involved with crochet romantically for 15 years, and involved with knitting for 11 years. They sometimes get jealous of each other. I think its funny. Along with knitting and crocheting, I quilt, spin (drop spindle) and design patterns!!

New Yarn!

I just finished up with my senior recital here at EIU! And now I have quite a bit of free time, so after the festivities were over I finished up some yarn that I have been spinning for months...

I really liked how it turned out! It was my first attempt at two ply yarn and I used the Andean bracelet in order to make it into a center pull ball before spinning it into two ply.

I learned a ton about how to spin two ply, gotta love youtube.

The only issue is, is that I wound it around my binder over 100 times, measured the binder, did some math, and figured out that I made 131 yards. For some reason that doesnt sound right.

This is why I am a graduating music major. Not a math major....
