Get to Know Us
How did we get here? I think about this often. I never thought I would leave my small town in Ohio that I lived in. I went to college and the world opened up to me, and grad school introduced me to the love of hospital social work and my hubby. From there we married and moved far from Ohio, to desert life, to Oregon city life, brief stay in long winters of Minnesota, and back to Ohio to live in a new city and settle for 10 years. Did I mention in these first years we had four boys. Each place gave me a new path, new adventures, Oregon city life introduced me to Portland Streetcar that led to Purl Knit, the yarn store I learned to knit! That started me out with one of my greatest adventure, the world of wool, and creativity. Now 2020, Covid and another move with teenage sons, one of the hardest years, but with all that struggle, I was pushed to see the world in a different way, a different story of my life started again. The love and hard work of farming, shepherding, and seeing wool in a new light.
