About

Hello & thanks for stopping by!

I love fiber arts and I hope you do, too! I started the MountGigantic blog to share every aspect of my knitting & spinning passion. I publish my own patterns, share what’s on my needles & document tips & techniques I learn along the way, as well as sharing the tragedies that befall my knitting sometimes (too much coffee & too little sleep is not good for yarn). I sell my patterns on Ravelry and my knitted items on Etsy. I also try to do as many art/craft fairs as I can. I even started one of my own (the Handmade Art Market) as a way to branch out & meet crafters of other mediums.

I taught myself how to knit while working at a coffee shop in the middle of Wyoming. Spinning has also been taking up a bit of my time for the last couple of years and I would not trade my wheel for anything in the world…well, maybe a couple of sheep 🙂

I’ve called several different places home: Indianapolis, Seattle, Fargo, Lander (WY) and Bloomington (MN). Most recently, I lived in the UK from June 2010 to April 2011, but now I’m happy to say I’m back in the Twin Cities!

I’m also:  painter, printmaker, autodidact, vegetarian

Things I like:
dogs, wool, squirrels, history, books, coffee, art, things that smell nice, walking, bussing & biking

Things I don’t particularly care for: (most)vintage clothing, leftover food, Mac computers, dreary winters, driving on freeways
