The KnottySheep by Kary
A long time member of our Bbest Team, Kary http://TheKnottySheep.etsy.com.
decribes herself as a "Creative Spirit". This is well portrayed in her hand-spun, hand-dyed, wools sold in her shop. Kary's love of working with hand-spun wools from the various sheep she uses for her wools, which gives a unqiueness to each creation. Besides her "hand-spun, hand-dyed" wools, Kary's shop also has what she calls her "Buck Naked Sheep Skeins" which are pure CALIFORNIA RED wool from a sheepie named "Humvie". The color is a natural tan - with the slightest hint of red 'hairs'.
According to Kary. "I work with various tools & I create with a tactile experience in mind. Knitting, spinning, weaving, felting - the joy of wool is ever present in my work". I recently finished a scarf made from one of the beautiful handspun wools from this shop. The yarn was called "A Walk Down the Rose Garden Path". As much as I loved this yarn, and was planning on making something special for myself; I wound up making it as a Christmas gift for one of my closest friends.
Kary's main passion, which we all know, is her love of dogs. Between all of her spinning and dyeing, she is busy saving shelter dogs, and donates a lot of her profits to dog rescues and shelters. Her goodness of spirit is also evident in her involvement in her other Team, Etsy Catholic.
