Sometimes I feel I should call myself a Fibre Artist because it sounds more important than knitter. I do other fiber arts. I rug hook, Embroider, crochet, sew... But the craft I feel most at home doing is knitting.
I know you can get the same kind of result with sewing. But I don't enjoy it the same way. Possibly the reason I enjoy embroidery is the hands on feel of fabric and thread.
