It’s that time of issue again, the time when I have something fantastic to give away. Are you ready? This is a big one. A super cool one. One I really want to keep. REALLY WANT TO KEEP! You’ve read the smart and sassy Amy Tyler’s article and project in the worsted issue — holiday […]
We try to minimize the mistakes, but we do make them. I make them. I made one in the Worsted issue and I’m about to tell you about it. See that pretty picture to your left, the one where I try to make it look like I’m spinning as fine as the fine Jessie Driscoll? […]

I used to be a big reader. I mean BIG. I used to go through several books a week. And then I met knitting. And then, I met spinning. And then even worse, I met PLY Magazine. My reading has dwindled to online help forums that claim to be able to help me with subscription […]

From stay-at-home moms who love 2 things — kids and spinning, to ex-editors-in-chief, to librarians, to graduate students, to actual professional copy-editors, 210 people expressed interest in working […]
