The Kings County Fiber Festival is held at the Old Stone House in Park Slope Brooklyn, and has a huge number of really excellent vendors this year!

In addition, my sheep to shawl team will be practicing for Rhinebeck, and I’ll be selling their shawls (and maybe some stitch markers, earrings or dice bags) to help them break even on the year’s work, prep, and materials.

Interested in meeting other spinners?  Check out the Spin City Meetup on October 8!

Hope to see you there!  It’s going to be a wonderful time.

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”
