DenKnits 4.1 Handspun

Welcome (back)!  This video begins season 4 of DenKnits and a new format.  Videos will be uploaded on a monthly basis and have a focused topic up for discussion.

This month we talk about HANDSPUN!  I'll show and discuss all the finished skeins from January along with finished knits out of handspun, other patterns good for handspun, fiber acquisitions, tools and tips!

You can find me on Ravelry and Instagram as denmoma; join the group on Ravelry and Facebook, just search DenKnits; subscribe to this channel or follow along at

DenKnits 3.20b Spinzilla, KAL winners and I Love Yarn Day

In this video I go over my Spinzilla handspun yarns, along with some other spinning.  The Grunge Hat KAL has wrapped up and I drew two winners!  I had a couple acquisitions along with an adventurous Holland Fiber Friends knit group meet up for I Love Yarn Day.

DenKnits 3.20 Multitasking

Short on time so I combined a periscope broadcast with my usual podcast, in a small scale, as I spun.  I hope to do another video in the next week covering all my Spinzilla handspun in the same manner.

DenKnits 3.19 Yarn, fiber, same thing

Sorry, I'm slacking on show notes...  I'll update them all someday, just doesn't look like today.

Had to use a different system for recording and editing so things will look different.  Let me know if the quality is real bad.  Also, lighting wasn't the best as it's overcast today.  This will likely happen more as we go into winter.  Maybe this year I"ll finally buy a good light bulb :-)
