Life’s Too Short for Boring Yarn...
Guest speaker, Leon Alexander of Leon Alexander Yarns is
based out of Oklahoma City, OK. "Color has always been
a love of mine and with a background in the arts why not
expand that into my other love of knitting? As a knitter I
was always looking for colors that did not exist yet so I
decided to make my own. I am inspired by anything that
challenges and expands creativity. Something that started
out as a cute play on words has now become a virtue
here, 'Life’s too short for boring yarn -- I’m not lion.'”
