Oil up your wheels, break out the spindles, and dig through that fiber stash as the 2023 Spin Off spin-along is quickly approaching! Wednesday, February 1st, is the official start date of this year’s event. Lace in all its glorious forms is the topic and happens to be my favorite type of spinning and knitting.

One of the wonderful things about lace is its adaptability. It can cover the entire surface of a lace shawl, be a simple eyelet pattern in a child’s sweater, or grace the top of a sock. Even the weight of the yarn can be variable, ranging from cobweb to chunky. What matters when making lace is placing the holes in the proper place.
