My name is Nikki and I am a writer, knitter, and crafter in Duluth, MN. I created this blog to have a place to share my writing and crafting pursuits online. As a writer, I enjoy writing fiction, mainly in the fantasy genre. As a reader, I enjoy fantasy, science fiction, historical, and mystery novels, but I don’t limit myself to those genres, either.
I often find myself itching to try ALL THE CRAFTS, but knitting is my main hobby. I love the colors, the flexibility, the softness of wool socks, and the feel of the fabric taking shape between my needles as I knit. Wool yarn is my favorite, and I’ve developed a fondness for sheep and other fiber-producing animals. I’ve always loved animals, so I hope that someday a hobby farm is in our future. The first time I heard the noises sheep can make, I couldn’t stop laughing!
I also have a small Etsy shop in which I sell seed beads. I worked at a bead store briefly in the past, and seed bead weaving became a welcome addition to my list of crafts I like to lose myself in. Like knitting, weaving with seed beads involves adding onto a project one tiny stitch at a time. I just need to get better at actually finishing the projects I start!
There is so much more I could say here, I’m sure, but instead I’ll work on writing the next story to post to the blog.
