Day 4 of our series! Meet NJStacie*Made - spinner extraordinaire and all around crafter. So happy she'll be joining us this Sunday (November 20th)!!!!!
What's your name, what's your business name, and where are you from?
My name is Stacie, my business is njstacie•made. I'm originally from New Jersey, but I've been in the Boston area for 13 years. <PREVIEWEND>
What came first knitting - dyeing - spinning?Knitting came first, about 12 years ago. I started spinning 5 years ago. I've just recently started weaving, too.
What's your favorite fiber to work with?
I love love LOVE to spin longwools like Wensleydale and Romney. It's got a great luster and hand, and knits up wonderfully.
How do you fend off creative-block?I knit! I'm always working on too many projects, and I try to make sure that at least one is plain and mindless and boring, so I can do it without having to put much effort or energy into it.
What do you love to make with your yarn/fiber?I really enjoy knitting mittens. I'm currently crocheting an afghan with leftover bundles of handspun - it's a great way to showcase the fibers.
Any exciting things in the works that you want to share with us?
Holiday crafting is about to take over my life :)
