We have a winner!

Thanks everyone, for participating!  And after using this random number generator, we have a winner! Kimberly Burnett-Dean of the great state of Virginia (which I hear is for lovers).  I’ll be sending the fiber out to her this week.   Thanks to Anne Podlesak for the pattern and the Wooly Wonka Fibers  fiber.   Stay tuned […]

Spinzilla — Team PLY!

Spinzilla — there are a whopping 56 teams of awesomeness this year and we’re one of them! Each team is allowed 25 spinners and those spinners spin spin spin from Oct 6-11th. Then all the yardage is counted up and whichever team has more — wins!  Of course it does other things too, good things — […]

How we learn to make a magazine pt.1

Everybody that’s been with us from the beginning knows that we, collectively, knew nothing about running a magazine when this whole adventure started, right?  Nothing.

Stay tuned, we have the fiber from Anne Podlesak’s Brighton top to give […]

Fiber give-a-way — Elektron scarf!

It’s also true that anything, absolutely anything, would look beautiful on her. But given all of that, the Elektron scarf,  by Kristy Howell from issue #4, really is stunning. There’s something about the delicate lace, the slightly rustic […]

We made a mistake in Twist

We are sad to announce (here and on the Twist issue’s extra page) that we made a mistake. A big mistake.  Through no fault of the author, in the issue about twist, in the photos in article about measuring twist angle —  we totally did it wrong. See, you’re supposed to line your yarn up […]
