We are the knights who say KNIT!

The knitting, crocheting, spinning, and disconnected ramblings of a geek of too many trades.


Alisa: We're here to talk about my knitting blog, not my love life.
Ed: You're making a distinction between the two now?

I spun a skein of yarn! And plied it!

It's... I have no idea what sheep it's from, and it's actually two random things of scrap (lot of pink, some black) given to me by the beautiful Jamie, but I spun it all by myself (with Cosy coaching me along) and then plied it by making a center-pull ball and pulling from the inside and outside.

Oh, right, here's my beautiful spinning wheel. It's a 1964 Ashford Traditional that I got for $95 at the antiques store in my parents' town.
