About

 

A Flyin’ Skein is a yarn shop in Seward, AK owned by Cindy Clark. Affectionately known as “The Yarn Lady” in her hometown of Seward, Cindy Clark enjoys building relationships with folks who visit her store, which she opened in August 2007. Cindy is passionate about teaching and encouraging others to discover hidden skills. Her talent began at age 9 when she learned to crochet. At 14, she taught herself to knit. In the years that followed, Cindy added to her repertoire: hairpin lace, broomstick lace, macrame’, counted cross stitch, quilting and spinning. She continues to build her talents in Tunisian crochet, Brioche knitting, Fair Isle knitting, tatting, weaving and having acquired a Circular Sock Knitting machine, is working to master it. Her background as an electro-mechanical engineering technician equips her with an ability to see knitting 3-dimensionally. But, most importantly, Cindy finds true blessings in the kinship with fellow crafters.

This morning - 4:30-ish... when I wasn't sleeping ☹️ since sometime before that.
I finally gave up trying to sleep and finished a cowl in Kitchener stitch.
What do you work on when you can't sleep?

Who has all their Christmas presents finished and ready to go?
Who is working on them?
Who hasn't even started them?

I started and finished one today - a needle tatted bookmark. I have 8 more to go, plus all the things I still want to do for the store.
