Pretty! I've been spinning undyed alpaca, which is nice and all, but I'm starting to miss color. I may have to go raid the fiber stash...

That wheel is so pretty you're going to get people to spin just to have it in their homes. Do you have kids? How old? In other words, how long do I have to wait until I can do beautiful stuff like you??

Wow. I am really trying to resist the desire to spin but when I see your posts I am totally inspired and intrigued!

Rebecca,
PLEEEEZ bring this yarn to Ferals tomorrow night! I must see it in person and pester you with questions about why your bobbins look so pretty. ;-) TMK

Hi Rebecca,
I still can't believe that top turned into that yarn. And I still want it - 10 or 12 skeins please ;-)
