handknit. handspun. handmade.
My name is Alicia Morandi and I publish knitting patterns under Woolen Diversions on Ravelry. I’m a fairly obsessed knitter with a weakness for socks, shawls, and shiny pretty yarn. Other than knitting I adore spinning, reading, music, nature, and science. I’ve also recently fallen in love with all-natural, handmade beauty products and began crafting my own for Sweet Sheep Body Shoppe on Etsy.
I love to blog about my WIPs and FOs as well as write guest posts on knitting and spinning-related tips and tricks. Check out the Around the Web page for links to guest posts, product reviews, and reviews of my Sweet Sheep products on other blogs. The Knitspiration page contains links to posts in my Inspiration Saturday series, and the Spin-tastic! page highlights my favorite spinning content.
I work as a biologist by day and design wooly accessories and concoct skin-care blends by night. I’m married to a wonderful guy (a.k.a. my Fiasco) and we live in Rhode Island with a couple of feisty cats who occasionally have trouble keeping out of the yarn. Stay for a while and say hello, I’d love to meet you!
