The Robin's Nest Studio

I first named my "business" The Robin's Nest when I was in my teens -- long before it was a reality. A home-based business, it has evolved since 1982 with my interests and lifestyle.

After many years of intense involvement with traditional rug hooking, my interest has returned to knitting and spinning. Knitting is so portable and follows me everywhere! I LOVE to knit! The rhythm and the soft clicking of the needles - so soothing.

To go with my knitting, I make stitch markers, scissor fobs, and row markers. I enjoy accessorizing my knitting with the colorful beaded markers. The large beaded scissor fob attached to the handle makes it a little more difficult to misplace my scissors. A good motto - Life is short - accessorize your knitting!

When my boys were young, I used to demonstrate spinning in schools and at festivals. Children were always mesmerized by the wheel. One little boy called to his mother saying that I had "magic hands". Spinning is cathartic and I love the feel of the fiber slipping through my fingers. It also feeds my knitting stash.

I also dabble in watercolor painting. I love the look of juicy watery paintings. And, I love color! I really need to paint more but can't seem to put down the knitting needles. Just need more hands and more TIME!

I have directed knitting and rug hooking retreats / workshops over the years and value the friendships I've made with other fiber artists. Please visit Magic Carpet Gallery to view some of the beautiful rugs that have been on exhibit during previous rug workshops.

Below are pictures of my knitting, spinning projects, and watercolor paintings. If you'd like to follow my adventures, check out my blog, www.fortheloveoffiber.typepad.com.
