Yo, it's so cool to see the flurry of activity and positive energy surrounding recent events! This intro is cross-posted among a few communities.

My name is Kristin, and I've been spinning for about 1.5-2.0 years, though I got my first wheel, a Majacraft Rose, only last summer. I started knitting in 2003. I wasn't always a crafty person, though I've almost always been an "arty" person. My younger years, college, and grad school were spent in the humanities, particularly literature, creative writing, and music ... all quite thinky disciplines. I asked a friend to teach me how to knit as an antidote to the screen-eye I was getting in my job as an editor.

Anyway, I love love love this. I love knitting, but I really love the sensory experience and the science of spinning (ugh, re alliteration).

To fiber_spin, thanks for letting us new fartes / little fartes listen in on the advanced group. I promise not to wet my pants or say anything dumb.

To the midwest group, well, that's where I grew up, though I now live in Utah. Can't take the MW out of the girl.

Thanks, and have good days. - kk
