It’s January 12th, 2019 and I’m finally doing something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. I’m starting a new website.
I’ve had a website for years. You can visit it at wildflowerknits.com. “Wildflower” because I live on the edge of Kansas prairie and “knits” because that’s what I’ve been doing for the past thirty years. Designing knitwear.
My area of concentration in art school was both textiles and photography. I especially loved weaving and when I broke my wrist in late 2017, I re-discovered just how much I’d missed it. My husband made me a tapestry frame loom and while taking a break from knitting, I wove my first tapestry in years.
It’s a little crude looking to me now, but I was so excited at the time. I’ve learned a lot. I’ve learned a lot with every weaving since. It’s my hope to write about my pitfalls (and hopefully some success stories) here.
