Description
This little book will teach you all you want to know about handspindles and how to use them to make your very own yarn. Designed to appeal to the beginning spinner, tips and hints are provided that illustrate how easy, enjoyable, and relaxing spinning can be. Handspindles are the simple tools that help you to turn wool into yarn: from a potato on a stick, to beautiful handcrafted wood spindles and new-age titanium spindles with CD whorls. Included are complete instructions for five simple, appealing projects: a woven scarf, a knitted bunny bag, a spiral-knit baby hat, knitted fingerless mittens, and a crocheted felted brimmed hat. Once you begin spinning on a handspindle, you won't want to stop - it's soothing, portable, and mesmerizing.
