Little Golden Notebook

Where fiber art, inspiration, and words meet.

About Mandy Kinne and Little Golden Notebook

I’ve been crafting my entire life: my Mom, a seamstress, did all sorts of projects with me when I was growing up and I haven’t stopped seeking out neat, fun things to make. I began knitting again in 2000 and have some original designs. I also crochet, spin yarn, weave, embroider, needle felt, dye, and do the occasional non-fiber art craft projects, including upcycling Altoid tins.

My inspiration for The Little Golden Notebook is Doris Lessing’s The Golden Notebook, the story of a writer, the four notebooks in which she records her life, and her attempt to tie them together in a fifth, gold-colored, notebook.

My own golden notebook ties a few notebooks together: one concerned with crafty wooly yarn things, a notebook for inspirational things, and a place for my writing, including a little bit of my memoir notebook. I hope you find The Little Golden Notebook interesting!
