If you are not aware of Abby Franquemont, you should be. She is an amazing and accomplished fiber artist. She was raised by two fabulous anthropologists in the highlands of Peru. The Grandmothers of the village made sure she would be a useful person and taught her to spin at age 5. To know more go to my blogroll and click on Abby's Yarns. She is one of those people who is inextricably bound to fiber and fiber to her. She will soon have a book published, which is all the better for the rest of us, who cannot sit in her kitchen and experience her wry humor and learn from her vast experience of the world and fiber.
