SPINNING...How do I describe the love I feel for these fibers as I gently coax them into becoming yarrn. This picture is of my third attempt with small amounts of yarn from a kit that I bought. I dyed the yarn myself with kool-aid before I spun it.

The color had a bit less orange tone than I intended, but I like it just the same.

Here is my husband's wrist modeling the first spinning/knitting project attempt, petting my parent's cat that is happily surrounded by warm wool fibers.

Gilly is contemplating how she can learn how to spin, despite the lack of opposable thumbs.

My first sweater! And a baby one at that...I finished it minutes before having to leave for a baby shower. It's from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. For some reason the very easy directions didn't compute with me and I called purlsoho for help. They're very nice.
