Learn the Best Yarn Methods!
What's your favorite yarn method?

In fact, I have bags of wool, buffalo, and llama fiber sitting in my living room and waiting to be spun.
You might not have a spinning wheel and loom sitting in your living room with the crochet hooks, knitting needles, and projects in progress, but if you've discovered this website, I know something about you.
I'm guessing you have a stash of yarn and you're wondering...
