Like to spin but want to up your skills? I’m returning to my beloved craft after several years away. Spinning directly from roving works well enough. But if you want fluffy yarn that’s a breeze to spin, grab yourself a pair of hand carders and follow this tutorial to make your own rolags. Rolags are small rolls of fiber that you create by hand. The finished rolags are uniform in width and flufflier, both of which make your spinning easier. Plus the fibers are well blended which will give your finished yarn a consistent color.
The Primrose granny square is a beautiful, modern take on something that is very traditional and has stood the test of time. Granny squares are a favorite with many crocheters; they are quick, fairly simple so a great confidence booster or fairly mindless project, and look great either as a focal piece to a project or as the basis of a project. And you can use your scraps!
