You guys, I’m going to be in Ply Magazine! I got to demonstrate how to wind a cop on a Turkish spindle: perfect ball and God’s eye methods. It was a super fun shoot, at Yarn Social (have you been there yet? It’s an amazing shop). In addition to posing for photos, I just spun, […]Read More Ready for My Close-up
