If you spend much time with me at fiber workshops, retreats, or simply waiting at the airport, you’re likely to see me winding handspun skeins into tidy balls of yarn. I love handling the yarn without any pressure to remember a knitting pattern or watch for dropped stitches. I just sit back and enjoy yard after yard.
While I was at Interweave filming my spinning videos several years ago, we created a quick tutorial on how I like to wind yarn—no tools necessary. Check out a story I wrote for Interweave.com for more yarn-winding tips.
