Question from a listener! intallcotton
So…I’ve been dying to know how you guys usually decide how to knit up your handspuns. Do you usually spin the fiber for a specific project? I bought a skein of handspun yarn this weekend, with a project in mind, so my mind is on handspun and I wanted to know what you guys did with yours, since I know you both spin. I’m just a curious knitter. 🙂

1. make a goal weekly to move more
2. Pick a project to knit while cardio-ing and share your before/start photo in thread
