Spinning up a storm

I’ve been doing a lot of spinning recently.  I’ve joined the Spin City sheep to shawl team, and I’ve been spinning a lot of Romney for warp for them:

  
I’ve also been spinning Gotland fiber for a friend’s sweater: 

 
And I’ve spun up two skeins of Polwarth 3-ply yarn from Spunky Eclectic hand-dyed top: 

   

 

I’ve also just opened an Etsy shop where I’m selling stitch markers, project bags, and handspun yarn, at KnitSpinQuilt.  Readers get 10% off with the code “KnitSpinQuiltReader”   

About Alisa

I'm a graduate student studying medieval European history. I knit, spin, quilt, and occasionally sew other things. I learned to knit and sew from my grandmother as a child: spinning I picked up on my own thanks to stubbornness and the internet. I have two spinning wheels and one sewing machine, and more knitting needles than I probably really need. My yarn and fiber stash is large enough that I think I'm probably well supplied for the aftermath of the zombie apocalypse.
