And hey, when you have the yarn already on hand, why not join in? Meet the Fleesensee hat by Verena Cohrs of The Wool Club. (Fleesensee is […]

Sophie’s Handspun Windschief

When Tour de Fleece came around this year I wanted to spin in solidarity with other fiber enthusiasts around the world, though I was too late to sign up for a team. My hands were already full with knitting commitments, but I made time to spin one of the many rovings (and tops and rolags) […]
