What Craftster means to me - Community. Yarn. Finished shot by SpinHeartSpin, on Flickr

What does Craftster mean to me?  Community.  A place where friends are made and inspiration is shared.

I started with fibres from community members.  I can't off the top of my head remember who all gave me these, but I did go through my past swaps and found photos of most these fibres. Some aren't there, but I do know that they came from friends on here.

After carding, I remembered that Missing Willow had also sent me some of her fleece (and I dyed it with my kids one day) so I grabbed a handful and added it in, you'll see how in a minute!

And there you have it.  Pictures are worth a million words.  I think I'll make a scarf out it. Wrap myself in the warmth this community has Wink

This is such a beautiful sentiment.  Smiley

When I first started learning how to crochet I got tons bits of handspun from a lot of my craftster buddies and crocheted it all into a big lap blanket. I still have it to this day and love it completely.

I was totally hesitant to put it all in!  Even once the batt was carded up, I thought "..yeesh.  This is gonna be the ugliest yarn"  but I was so happy when I pulled it off the bobbin!! It embodied the diversity and beauty of the Craftster community. thanks, Jungrrl!

Oh.my.gosh.  Shocked That is beautiful yarn and I want to bury my face in it. Seriously, though, shared projects like that, where so many people contributed their love and passion, make my heart just melt. Awesome.
