Meet the Author

Lonna Cunningham lives on a very small farm in rural Alberta where she and her family raise sheep, chickens and veggies, accompanied by a Dexter cow, several dogs and a fluctuating number of cats. You can read Lonna’s musings about life on the farm, knitting, gardening and a variety of other somewhat random subjects on her website at blog.applejackcreek.com.Lonna rarely goes anywhere without a knitting project in hand and once sat at the side of the road after a car accident working on a sock while waiting for the police to arrive. She is engaged in an ongoing effort to balance the size of the fibre stash in such a way as to ensure that there is always enough on hand to allow for the immediate implementation of suddenly-inspired projects while at the same time attempting to stay within the available storage space. In addition to knitting, Lonna also enjoys spinning, particularly on her beloved century-old Canadian Production Wheel and her supported spindles, and she can often be found online in the Ravelry or Homesteading Today forums, where she is known as Frazzlehead.The onset of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder brought Lonna’s twenty-year career in Information Technology to a rather unexpected end, and she is now exploring other ways in which she can contribute to the family’s financial stability (and pay for yarn).
