Hi! I'm Nikki
(aka Mrs. McDreamy)
I'm a 46-year-old housewife/mom/dog-mom/grandma/avid reader/boho chick in Downtown Phoenix who is just now finding her way in this crazy world. My fiber background consists of randomly deciding to teach myself to crochet and knit when I was 33. Crocheting was easy, but Knitting... son of a bitch if I dropped a stitch the whole project was ruined and thrown aside. Fast forward to 2019, I was 44 and saw the infamous Find your Fade Shawl by a very talented pattern designer and that was that. I ordered the yarn, I knitted the shawl, and I haven't stopped since. Well, that is until I decided to spin my own yarn. Why? I don't fcking know. But I bought myself a drop spindle and I've been shooting the heroin ever since. This blog is about how my mind has completely been ravaged by fiber and colors, and of course spindles, wheels & looms. Why a blog? Because absolutely zero of my friends and family think spinning is cool and I need an outlet, so you my dear are my new bff. Let's rock this shit.
