Alexandria

I name my yarns after words that I like to say out loud. That’s my naming scheme for this year; there’s really nothing more complicated to it than that.

My stress level is through the roof right now, so I’m spinning and dyeing everything I can get my hands on. I just sorted out my koolaide stash; I’m heavy on stuff I thought I would be low on and almost out of the colors I normally have by the bucketful.
