I was reading so many great fiber art blogs I was inspired to start one of my own.
My first born helped me but I had no idea what was going to come of this.
I had to come up with a name. Should the name have something to do with Lupus, teaching, knitting, family. I remembered one day looking at my hands and realizing they looked just like my mothers hands. Now I had a name. My Mother was Puerto Rican and the picture is the Puerto Rican seal.
My daughter came up with, The map to the kingdom of knitting and the country side of crochet.
This was my first post.

I have no idea. How do people start blogs?
I have to have socks on the needles all the time. At first, I was afraid I couldn't make socks, but now I must have socks available all the time.
I got some Lang JaWoll at a store called Yarn Diva. It comes with thread that lets you reinforce the heel. Yarn Diva is a nice little store, but I still love Stix-n-Stitches.
I'm going to go to get myself a new camera tomorrow. I want to learn how to use it and take some pictures of my stuff and I'll be on my way to blog-land.
I have learned so much in the past year and I thank my daughters for teaching me.
When I had the idea to start a group fiber artists who blog Ravelry made that possible and the Lesser Known Skeins was born.
I have met so many great people this year because of the blog and I hope to know and be inspired by more awesome fiber artists in the future.
