About me

Gender MALE
Occupation spinner/knitter
Location Jericho, Vermont, United States
Introduction I'm a knitter, spinner, and avid loose leaf tea fan. I'm sober, a fiberholic, vegetarian, and a localvore. I live and love in northwest Vermont, with my partner of 18 years, Jeff. I have a degree in education and a keen interest in the history of Asia: India, Japan, Bhutan, Burma, Tibet, Nepal, etc. I've been knitting for over 28 years and spinning fiber for over 17 years. I enjoy spinning fine fibers such as cashmere, qiviut, and guanaco, and other members of the Camelid family, such as alpacas and llamas; wool, cotton, silk, and many other plant and animal fibers. I try to have as little impact on the planet as possible, and preserve much produce from our organic garden; be it canning, freezing or dehydrating. Our trip to India two years ago for a friend's wedding led me on a renewed spiritual path. I've always questioned and searched for that ultimate truth, but realized through Hinduism and Buddhism that my journey here IS the path! I try to live each day as humbly as I can, and try to help those less fortunate than I.
