My Story

Needle crafts have been in my family for at least three generations. My grandmother was a crochet, as is my aunt. My mother knits, and I first picked up knitting needles thanks to her at a young age. Everything was just straight knit stitch, but I loved it! I returned to knitting in high school when I joined the knitting club. After graduating from college, and realizing that there was this thing called "free time," I taught myself to crochet and was hooked (no pun intended). I enjoyed making gifts for people, and it was a great hobby to have through graduate school to help destress. I accumulated a pile of goods, but there weren't enough people to give them to, and so my Etsy shop was born. As I continued through grad school and now as a working professor, I find crocheting is a great way to relax after a long day. I still make gifts whenever possible and I love making new items for my Etsy shop.

Crocheting always reminds me of my childhood, particularly of the handmade items from my family, all of which made me feel cozy and comfortable. That feeling of coziness stuck with me, because, as many of you know, sitting in an office all day is anything but cozy. I have a collection of shawls and ponchos, some made by me and some by others, and these items make work days just a bit more cozy and comfortable. That is a feeling I want to share with people as we all move through life, sometimes forgetting that our comfort matters.

Two passions in my life are crochet/knitting and books. I have decided to combined those passions here with a crochet/knit shop devoted to novels and the reading life.

Welcome to Well Spun Yarns!

I am a crochaholic and a bibliophile. I decided to combine these two passions (for crochet and books) into one shop.

Let me know if there are any literature-inspired or literary-themed items you would like to see!
