Are you intimidated by a project more difficult than a square/rectangle (like a scarf or blanket)?

You love knitting but...

  • You are hesitant to make a project that “won’t work” or you might have to rip out or throw away. 
  • You don’t want to waste money and time on “the good yarn” making a project that won’t come out correctly.
  • You don’t know how to measure yourself or others in order to make a sweater that fits.

The Spinning Hand quarterly kits are simply the best! The patterns are well designed and tested. The yarn is always beautiful and of the highest quality. The extras are always a very fun and useful treat. I have not found any other subscription knitting box that comes close!

Kari Capone is a rock star! She went above and beyond to mail my gift order the.same.day I ordered it! The gift recipient, recovering from a very unfortunate motor vehicle collision, gushed over the beautiful yarn as well as the beautiful packaging! There's nothing like knitting to assist in healing and there's nothing like a compassionate, kind person such as Kari to brighten one's day! Thank you, Kari.
