Fiberwork as an Identity
Created By: Karla Fears

When I was in sixth grade, I asked my mom to teach me to crochet. She was thrilled that I wanted to learn something she had been doing for years. I loved it so much, I became hooked (no pun intended). My piano teacher would knit while I played so I asked her to teach me and by junior high, I was a knitter and crocheter. By high school, this passion waned and by college, I wasn't doing anything.

I joined the Navy right after college and it wasn't until I got to Naval Postgraduate School that I picked up knitting and crocheting again. I was so nervous and scared I was going to fail, I started stressing out seriously. One day, on my way to class, I picked up a ball of yarn and a crochet hook. In between classes, I would sit outside and crochet. Immediately, my stress disappeared. Needlework and I became inseparable. I took something with me everywhere I traveled. While in Korea, I explored the fiber markets, looking for unusual yarns to work with. My friends were very grateful because they received the benefit of my work as gifts.

I am now retired and have the time to pursue my passions to the hilt. I am working on both Master knitting and Master crocheting. I have taken up weaving and kumihimo and they have become my new passions. I have rediscovered sewing. Now, instead of buying my clothes or sweaters or socks off the rack, I make them myself and get so many compliments. Fiber, in any form, is my addiction. It's better than any drug!
