Handspun Project Inspiration + Winner’s Circle

Now that Spinzilla has come and gone, it’s time to turn those beautiful handspun skeins of yarn into unique projects! Not long after Spinzilla 2013, we shared some of our favorite project ideas specifically for handspun yarns here on the Louet blog. This year, we’d like to share some of the inspiring projects we’ve spotted on Ravelry using handspun yarns, many of which use popular patterns with which you’re probably already familiar! Click the images and links below to view the Ravelry project pages for more information. We’d love to see what you make with your Spinzilla 2014 yarns – feel free to share your project photos here in our Ravelry Group!
