I have a couple of knitting/crochet heroes.
First off is my friend Contessa; the amount of stuff she makes just amazes me. She's part of the reason I started knitting. At first I just crocheted, but after seeing some of the stuff she knitted and hearing her talk about it made me want to try.
I think for this I'd probably go with my friend Margie - Auntie Pita, or Nursie if you're a rennie. Not only does she knit, but she can spin yarn too! Someday I shall give it a try.
Who are your fiber craft heroes?
