Spinning is a wonderful way to while away a cozy evening by the fireplace or make good use of those summer days when the heat keeps you from going out. With the ability to create your own handspun, you will never lack for the perfect yarn for that special project again - or the perfect gift for the knitters and crocheters in your life!
