Knitter's Review
July 7, 2005

a rose blooms in merino In 2002 I asked how many of you either knew how to spin yarn or were interested in learning. More than 55% of you answered "no."

Fast-forward to 2005. I asked the same question and more than 63% of you said "yes."

To help you learn more about handspinning, I went to the ultimate source—Spin-Off magazine—for this week's featured article on how to spin with a spindle.
