Spinzilla’s photo contest provides a way for spinners to share their spin with the entire spinning community. Here are the photos that received the most love out of all the wonderful photos shared on the Ravelry photo contest threads. They made us smile, laugh out loud, and even tear up. Such a great celebration of making yarn by hand.
Each winner receives a $25 gift certificate from Louet.
