3KCBWDAY3: Hero Worship

Today's topic for the 3rd Annual Knit and Crochet Blog Week is "Your Knitting or Crochet Hero".  I'm not much into hero worship for anything let alone knitting, but if we're talking admiration there is one individual I can think of in my fiber world.

She is an accomplished knitter both hand and machine.
She is an accomplished weaver, basket and rigid heddle to complex cloth, published, in fact.
She is an accomplished spinner, one fait acompli worth mentioning is the Barbara Walker Learn to Knit Afghan that she not only knit, but spun the yarn for each square from the fleece of a unique breed of sheep.
She is an accomplished dyer of yarn and fiber, her color sense is fabulous and if you know me, by now you know her.
She earns my admiration for all these things and more.
She is my mentor, my boss, my partner in crime, but most of all she is my friend. 
She is the artisan behind Handwerks and her yarns are an endless inspiration for me.

I couldn't agree more - she has been an inspiration to so many of us!
