Spindle-Spun Singles Shrug by Liz Gipson

There is an old saying that spinning on a spindle is slower by the hour, but faster by the day. A simple, portable tool, the handspindle, allows you to spin whenever you find a spare moment, so, I never leave home without one. This shrug is a perfect first project for practicing spindle spinning. Each stripe of the versatile garment—it can also be worn as a neck or head scarf—is about a spindle’s worth of yarn. Knitted lengthwise in alternating stripes of garter, seed, and stockinette stitch, it is as fun to make as it is to wear.
